Solipo – Home Renovation
The Solipo family had a basement family room that being used as the storage area for non-used items in the house, and the two bedrooms were un-usable due to a previous water leak in the walls that had caused termite, rot and mold damage. The thought of reworking these areas was overwhelming to consider doing this project on their own.
While on the surface it looked like a huge project, Real Property Service recognized it was in reality a simple clean up, repair and replace project. A plan was made to clear out the unused items from the basement, take out the old carpet, remove the old paneling above the fireplace and build a simple entertainment wall. The existing wall paperd walls would be textured and painted over and a new wood floor installed. In the bedrooms the wall where the water leak had happened would be removed and a new wall put in its place. All of the drywall was repaired and textured with a new quality paint job to finish up the renovation.
The Solipo family now has 600 sq feet of living space recovered and usable in their home. It was finished just in time for their daughter to have friends over for a holiday party and for family to stay in the new bedrooms for the holidays. Kim said “You and your team made this project happen so quickly and look so simple. We could never had completed this on our own.” The family is now planning to finish the rest of the unfinished area of the basement with a new kitchen and bathroom.
