Basement Finishing Planning

You’re thinking of finishing off part of your Basement and you know that done right, it will take some great ideas and planning.

Basement Finishing - Before & After 

The challenge for most basement contractors is they are limited to materials used primarily for finishing the first and second levels of a house. Higher levels of moisture settle into the floors, walls, and ceiling of a basement, creating damage and potential health hazards for your family. Furthermore, moisture may extend into the first floor your home. Over the years the Fitch team has successfully removed materials in moisture damaged basements and replaced them with quality, moisture resistant products.

What would you prefer in your basement?

There are many different options on how to use your basement including a family room, movie theater, game room, playroom, in-law suite, exercise room, office, extra bedroom...the uses are endless. Our design consultants will provide guidance in how to best utilize the space and which Fitch Construction products including ceiling tiles, walls, flooring, windows,  lighting, and dehumidifiers will integrate best.

Time to look at some options!

Now comes the fun part! We take measurements of your basement, load them into a Computer Aided Design (CAD) program called Basement Vision, and then create a floor plan. Within a few minutes, you will see a visual concept of your new basement with options for any layout.

As you see the project come to life, we explain the details of the initial design, provide options to consider, discuss the construction process, as well as the timing and budget. Our goal is to build excitement and provide immediate peace of mind for you.
