Due to the recent down economy, more and more customers are requesting to remodel their homes rather than buying new ones or doing costly additions. This customer hired Hughes Construction to remodel a portion of their basement that currently consisted of wood paneling on top of the foundation walls. We had previously done some other work for this customer. Hughes Construction used the material that was provided by McCabe Lumber to frame out the walls and hang drywall. One of the walls that were framed was used to isolate that room from the rest of the basement. We added some access panels, paint, and trim to finish off the room. In addition to the basement remodel we also installed a small gutter above their door outside that led to the basement. The materials for the gutter were provided by Allied Building Products.
New gutters were installed on the entire roof of this project. The home owner selected white 6″ gutters, we always recommend installing bigger gutters than what are required because the additional cost is very minimal, and they function much more efficiently. Marsh Building Products provided the gutters on this project, in order to make them seamless they had to be rolled off of their truck. The most challenging part of this project was the height off the ground, which was nearly thirty feet. Instead of setting up scaffold or using very large ladders they were installed standing on the roof. By doing this we were able to save the building owners money, and time.
