Project Description

Location: Madison, NJ

Scope of Work: Interior Carpentry, Interior Painting

This Madison, NJ home technically had a finished basement. It had paneled walls, flooring, and even a half bath and kitchenette. However, everything was extremely dated, the plumbing and appliances weren’t functioning, and the paneled walls had suffered water damage. So, we were called in to remove the damage, disassemble the old kitchen and bath and update the space.

Monk's Method

Firstly, we provided a basement clean up. This included demolishing the extremely dated kitchen and bathroom. Since the basement would be primarily used for storage, the homeowners elected not to replace them. Afterward, the dated and water damaged paneling was removed. We also ripped up the flooring.
New electric was put in to bring the living space up to code. We then applied a sealer to the cement block foundation. This will help to prevent future water damage.
Carpenters then reframed the room, including a designated utility room. Then we hung new drywall. Afterward, we installed new baseboard trim and window trim. The support columns were also boxed out with new material.
Additionally, five new interior doors were added to the basement. Luxury vinyl tile flooring planks were installed throughout. Also, the bathroom sink was replaced with a new, fully-functioning utility sink.
Lastly, we completed the project by painting the new walls and trim.
In just two weeks we provided a basement clean up and updating project.
