The first thing we do in a basement reno after any required demolition and removal works have been completed, is to ensure all below ground walls are free from water ingress and moisture.  Then the framing can start ... taking shape in accordance with the agreed design we have agreed with our customer.  We make use of every available space that can be transformed into something useful to the final design concept and overall layout.
The floor surfaces are all important to a good basement transformation and where necessary, we will undertake a new self leveling floor screed to achieve the desired finish.  Once the framing is in place, we can rough in for the electrics and plumbing, followed by the installation of sound proofing insulation and vapor barriers.  After a full clean up of the site, we are almost ready for the installation of drywall to the areas ready for it.
It is also worth noting that in basement renovations, the finished ceiling height is all important and as such, it is sometimes necessary to make alterations of existing ducting or at least, to frame it in the best way to achieve the desired effect once drywall has been installed.  Metal support pillars can be disguised in a variation of ways, to create more of a feature than an eye sore.  Choosing color schemes is also very important.
These pictures provide you with some of the ideas that people have chosen for their own basements and of course, it all depends on exactly what you want to use the newly finished space for.   Before you decide on a basement layout, always think ahead for when the day come that you decide to sell your property.  Will your basement design be attractive to potential buyers and will it add the much needed value to your home?   A multipurpose layout that can be changed easily is always best.
The finished results of your basement and the ambiance it creates is all dependent on the level of finishes you choose to have.  Everyone has different ideas and different taste, together with different needs and different budgets to work with.

The Hartman's team is fully aware of all these facts and this is why, right from the point of first contact, we work hand in hand with our customer to come up with a final design and finish that satisfies all of their requirements.  We have installed hidden rooms, secretly accessed safe rooms, remote controlled moving walls, doors and even large screen televisions that only appear at the touch of a button.

Fireplaces, feature columns, crown molding, wall panels, feature ceilings and selective lighting effects all help to create the perfect ambiance and we will be there to provide advice and guidance on every aspect and step of the way.  Yous new basement will be totally unique.

This older type Surrey house was completely upgraded throughout and among the various projects, the original stairs were tilting, creaky and very unsafe.

​​The original old rickety stairs were restructured, the wrought iron railings were removed and the whole area given a clean modern look with high quality laminate flooring and nosing, a timber and splindled ballustrade and handrail and a much safer and more solid finish all round.
