Cutting-edge solution providers
For example, what is a huge issue contractors run into during Bellevue basement remodels? Headroom!
Most contractors in Bellevue use wood ceiling joists to frame a ceiling when finishing a basement. The typical material used on this is 2’’ x 4’’ or 2’’ x 6’’ wood studs on edge. This poses a problem as these framing members lower the height of finished basement ceiling, decreasing headroom. Not to mention, basement ceilings are usually low to begin with as they enclose under-house piping, HVAC, electrical, etc.
This can be a real problem for homeowners because no one wants to pay for a basement remodel just to have the space feel small due to a low ceiling.
Our high-tech solution is Armstrong Drywall Grid. This is a suspended ceiling that drywall attaches to and it is only about 1” thick.
First, heavy gauge ceiling wires are carefully placed between obstructions and existing floor joist-mounted utilities.
Then, drywall grid is installed and Sheetrock is fastened underneath.
You are provided a great finished product with maximum headroom. This is just one example of how we can offer our customers more. We use the latest and greatest construction methods for your benefit!
