Your basement can give you that little extra space, especially when you put in extra work to put finishing touches on it. Keep in mind that finished basements can add huge value to your home and it is one of the most sought-after commodities by home buyers. It can take between 4 and 8 weeks to complete a standard basement finishing, then you need a dumpster to evacuate the debris created to the landfills. M&M Waste offers a reliable dumpster rental service you can hire for your basement renovation.

Finish Your Basements Wall, Ceiling and Floors- The Basic Steps

To revive your basement and make it look valuable again, you need to target the wall, floors, and ceilings in particular. If you are handling the job yourself, you will need to apply for the appropriate permit at your local council office or online. The second step is to handle the dampness because you want to avoid the installation of drywall in a high humidity area. If you have to install drywall in a high humidity basement area then you need to waterproof the work. Picking your materials is another basic step to take. Determine if you want drywall or plaster, exposed or drop-ceiling, and carpet or laminate for the floor. You must also consider the type of insulation, the style of the ceiling, the wall material type, the type of flooring, location of utilities, trim styles, and type of paint when choosing materials.

Complete Your Basement Finishing

Just before you complete the finishing of your basement you need to gather all your tools. These include safety gear such as Dust mask, gloves, goggles, and long-sleeve shirts. Basement finishing tools required to complete the work include a hammer, insulation adhesive, Caulk gun, level, ladder, masonry drill and bits, saw horses, nail gun, tape measure, and utility knife. To finish the basement wall, you must begin with the installation of insulation, then frame the walls, before installing utilities. Once the utilities are installed, you must mount the drywall, before painting. Keep in mind that lots of junks will be generated during these procedures, hence you need a local dumpster rental service to evacuate them.

Ceiling and Basement Floor Finishing

The type of finishing for the basement ceiling will depend on whether you are opting for Drop-ceiling, open-ceiling or Dry-walled. To finish the basement floor, you need to install a sub-flooring, then follow the installation instructions to install the proper flooring. Now that the basement finishing has been completed, you have to consider some other possibilities, depending on whether you want to use it as a new office, children's playground, or anything else. It is also important to note that finishing the basement is not the end of the process. You need to have arranged for a dumpster rental service to evacuate all the wastes generated during the finishing. Please contact us at M&M Waste and we will provide you with the suitable dumpster rental service that will take care of your basement finishing wastes.
