Remodeling the Basement: New Lighting, Painting and Flooring

From start to finish Oddjob can help with even those bigger jobs on your mind.

We leveled the floor, added a water proofing membrane, a new sub floor and then beautiful new flooring in this new great multi purpose room.  New drywall, paint, lighting and baseboard and this room was complete!

Before and After: Repairing Drywall in a Flooded Basement

Basement flooding not only ruins whatever belongings you might have stored downstairs, but it also can cause rot and decay in the drywall, insulation and wood that make up the walls. That’s what we found inside the walls at this house when we came to replace the drywall of a guest bedroom.
