Finishing A Basement
Finishing a basement can be the most affordable way to increase the square footage of a home. Including modern wiring, lighting, smoke alarms, and other electrical systems can make the difference between a dark space and comfortable living areas and bedrooms. Whether a do-it-yourself project or contractor managed, we can take care of all the electrical details. D&D Electric can handle the permits and inspections to ensure your finished basement is compliant with local code.
Major Phases of Basement Finish
There are several common steps where contractors are involved when finishing a basement - regardless of the scope or scale of the project.
Other additional things to think about are painting, audio visual (D&D Electric can do this too), painting, trim and doors, and flooring.
Completing The Electric Work
While some phases of the basement could be accomplished by the homeowner, electrical is not one of them. Working with electricity can be dangerous, especially for the do-it-yourself homeowner without experience. After designing and planning the electrical for your basement, our crew gets to work. The plan is critical for ensuring the end product matches the desires of the family who will be living in the home. Once the initial wiring is completed, we install light switches, outlets, and other special electrical items (washer/dryer). Refinishing a basement can require an update to the electrical panel or an additional sub-panel to be compliant with city codes.
