Finishing Your basement
Basement environments are not conducive to finishing without proper preparation. Many homeowners attempt to finish their basements on their own or with a general contractor, only to tear out all their hard work due to moisture and water damage. Kinetic Basement creates a healthy, livable environment in your basement and can finish any basement project with proper materials and protection to make the space a long term positive environment in your home. Let our team of professionals give you a free estimate for your basement from start to finish.
We are a healthy home company who specializes in basement construction and solving water issues. The following list of materials is a result of that knowledge.
- Non organic Materials
- Metal studs and purple sheetrock ( moisture resistant)
- Tile Floors or Polyester Carpet with finish shield moisture barrier below
- Electrical – Code Compliant plastic boxes and covers
We almost always sheetrock ceilings with recessed lighting including two closets (2’x6’) and we never insulate, as it creates moisture problems and is a complete waste of money in the basement. In addition we never use spray foam and do not recommend it as it deteriorates sill plates and creates pest problems.
What is a Kinetic Finished Basement?
A Kinetic Finished Basement is one that is conclusive to upstate New York living, not just thrown together to look good. They need to be built to last and to hold up against inclimate weather conditions. Improper construction can lead to water issues, which eventually will lead to demolition and rebuilding.
We first make sure structure is sound and moisture free with water systems and back- ups to handle moisture and power outages. Then we construct using non organic materials ready for higher moisture areas. Lastly, we install proper dehumidification systems.
Finishing your basement has never been easier. Kinetic Basement Solutions offers inorganic floor tiles made from 70% recycled materials, which do not promote mold growth between tiles and floor. Tiles are available in 20 different styles from utility rooms to office and garages. We also offfer custom stone tiling.
Floor shield is an inorganic and unique product that creates a moisture barrier between carpet and your slab. This is superior to laying down a carpet pad or just plastic. It creates an air gap, which allows the slab to channel water and dry out, eliminating that cold floor feeling.
