How to Choose the Right Ceiling for Your Basement Finishing Project

Creating a finished basement presents many unique challenges that you will not find in other home improvement projects. For example, working with your remodeling contractor may be more tedious than you expect. You and the contractor may have a difficult time choosing the right ceiling for your basement. In this instance, you need to have patience and an open mind. Let’s take a close look at why you and your contractor may run into difficulty.

It’s imperative to point out that wiring, water pipes, and ductwork are located above your basement. Basement ceiling remodeling is the process of creating a new finished basement ceiling without hindering someone’s ability to access these vital components of your home. It’s fair to say that you may need a technician to make repairs to your duct work in the future. It’s better to not take the route of cutting a hole in your drywall so that the technician can have access to your duct work. Fortunately, there are other options at your disposal.

We’ve completed many basement renovations involving drywall ceilings over the years. We are focused on exceeding our customer’s expectations. This is the primary reason why we educate our customers on the value of designing in strategically placed access panels. This strategy makes it extremely easy for service technicians to get into the ceiling without cutting holes. Please keep in mind that drywall access panels are not the only option on the table.

Our experience as a basement remodeling contractors gives knowledge to the fact that the average homeowner believes that “Suspended Ceiling” means they will have a do-it-yourself or industrial look. To be honest, plain ceiling tiles and aluminum grids do not offer a polished or professional look like drywall does for basement remodels. You can however get an upscale “Shoji” screen feel for the ceiling if you design the grids with wood and use textured creamy tiles.

Your creativity is the limit when it comes to suspended ceilings. For example, you can install lighting to shine through a grid of ultramodern translucent panels. This will add a nice feel to your finished basement. Your family and friends will be impressed with this neat feature. The height of the basement will restrict how far you will be able to suspend the ceiling. You shouldn’t worry about this as there are tons of ceiling options that look spectacular in basements and fortunately, they only need an inch in-depth to work.

As stated earlier, creating a finished basement presents many unique challenges for any homeowner. You must use your creativity or imagination to find the ideal ceiling for your finished basement. Hiring the right remodeling contractor will make a big difference. Make certain you hire a contractor that has solid references and several years of experience in the industry.
