LPB Construction Inc. specializes in basement finishing and remodeling throughout the Cleveland, OH, area. As third-generation carpenters, the LaPonza brothers have years of experience with all aspects of basement renovation. Nowadays, more and more homeowners are looking to update their outdated basements to create modern, functional living spaces. Here are four of the most common updates our clients request.

Basement Finishing

1. Walls

Updating or finishing basement walls is one of the primary requests of all of our clients. In older homes, we frequently remove wooden paneling and replace it with drywall. Typically, homeowners are looking to create a light, open space with clean walls, light trim, and neutral paint colors. Furthermore, we specialize in framing and creating defined spaces for home offices, spare bedrooms, bathrooms, etc.

2. Flooring

Updated flooring is another crucial element of any basement remodeling project. In years past, homeowners frequently installed carpeting to add warmth to cold basement floors. Carpeting, however, is liable to mold if your basement should ever flood unexpectedly. Alternatively, many clients opt for a more durable flooring option, such as vinyl tiles, hardwood, or replaceable carpet squares. And, if warmth is a concern, we can install radiant, in-floor heating to create warm floors and a cozy, consistent heat source.

3. Ceilings

After floors and walls, ceilings are next on the list of most popular basement updates. In lieu of traditional drop ceilings, many clients prefer open ceilings. Leaving the joists visible creates an industrial look and provides extra head space. Alternatively, for a cleaner look, we also install new drywall ceilings.

4. Electrical

Recessed lighting is a popular choice for basements as it creates a lot of light without taking up head space. Many older homes have old wiring thus, during the basement remodeling process, we will make sure your home’s electrical system is up to code. Safety and quality are our top priorities.
