When the time comes for you to build your Long Island basement you will need a contractor to help guide you in the right direction. You should hire a local Long Island basement builder that will be there when the time comes to start your basement project. There are many elements of your basement you need to plan for or around when planning your basement foot print. You want your finished basement to flow and be easy to use. Bedrooms, kitchen, bath and living room should be placed according to where the utilities are, the entrance and other amenities that might get in the way or enhance each space.
You will want to have a real basement built with real walls because real walls are most flexible when it comes to interior decorating and layout. Real walls are built using framing and sheetrock which are painted or papered or wainscotted or whatever your heart desires. You can also have mold resistant sheetrock installed to help eliminate any mold problems that might turn up. This mold resistant sheetrock is made to resist mold growth.
You’ll need to consider your plumbing variables which are based on a few questions. Do you want to heat your basement? What kind of heating system do you have? Do you want a bathroom and/or a kitchen? Are you using a gas or electric stove? Answers to these questions will affect the price and duration of your basement project. Certain elements such as a bathroom can affect the layout of your basement. The bathroom is usually placed within the vicinity of your drain line.
