This Holland Landing Basement Renovation was a bit different then the usual basements we do. The basement in size itself was smaller then usual and also the house was on a septic tank system. For such a case, when in a basement, we had to add a sump pump/grinder system if we wanted to add a washroom on the basement. We had our plumbers plumb in this unit and attach the 3 piece washroom plumbing to this unit. The basement also had low ceilings at some points. Starting with the washroom, we waterproofed the shower walls with 3 coats of Red Guard waterproofing systems. We added a shower niche for comfort. The client opted for a vinyl shower base. We used a 24×24 gloss tile for the walls and washroom floor. A white tile with darker grey veins. Our tile installer made sure the veins in the tiles all went one way and made the flow very smooth. We called in our glass specialists to add a custom glass shower door. We added 2 sconces on the side of the mirror above the vanity. We also did 5 inch tile baseboards around the bathroom. As for the rest of the basement we added Dricore subfloors with insulated bottom. 7 inch wide and 7mm thick vinyl flooring was laid. the stairs where finished with a special vinyl stair capping that matched the floors throughout the basement. This created a nice flow in the basement. For paint the client choose a light grey color from Benjamin Moore. The basement had 4 inch LED drywall thin pot lights throughout. 5.5 inch colonial baseboards where added with a matching shoe molding. The basement also had an old wood fireplace that was converted to an electric fireplace. The brick around it was old and the client asked us to paint it. We used a special Benjamin Moore paint that is durable and meant for bricks. A darker grey color was used. To finish it off we customized the electrical panel doors. This Holland Landing Basement Renovation was another success to add to the list for Yorkland Homes.
