How our basement finishing system is different

Each year we have dozens of homeowners come to us after their basement was ruined by a flood, burst pipe or other water disaster. Many don't realize that insurance doesn't cover most basement water disasters. If you're going to finish your basement, do it right and avoid having to spend thousands to redo it. Here are some of the ways our basement finishing system does it right:

  • The basement remodeling products we use are 100% inorganic. This means they are waterproof and mold resistant.
  • The flooring we use is incredibly durable and interchangeable. It can be replaced in small sections when you do manage to wear it out.
  • The walls are washable and insulated. They can hold up your flatscreen without studs.
  • The ceilings are no-sag, mold resistant and have crown molding. They can hold up under your basement's harshest conditions.
  • We have everything you need to finish your basement right. Along with wall panels, flooring and ceiling tiles, we also offer basement windows, lighting and dehumidifiers.

Four great reasons to remodel your basement

No moisture, no mold, no problems. Quality 1st Basements has years of experience working in both basement waterproofing and basement finishing. We know exactly how to protect a basement from water damage while finishing it at the same time. You can expect a beautifully finished and protected basement that will last for the lifetime of your home. 

Inexpensive extra space. It is much less expensive to finish your basement than to build an addition to your home. Remodeling your basement provides an entire floor of quiet, private living space for less than half the cost per square foot of an addition (according to the 2013 Remodeling Magazine Cost vs. Value Report).

Excellent return on investment. If you want to increase the value of your home the big three you should look into is remodeling your bathroom, your kitchen and of course the basement.

Energy savings. Your big unfinished basement is not only ugly but it is costing you money each month in energy costs. By finishing your basement you can fix the air leaks and lack of insulation along the way to save yourself some cash in the long run.
