Carpet Tile Basements

    carpet tile
  • A flooring tile made from a stiff-backed carpet material. Replacing worn, stained, or damaged carpet tiles is much easier than replacing an entire carpet, making them ideal for use in extremely high trafffic areas such as building lobbies and airport concourses.

Basement Stairway - Bottom looking Up
Basement Stairway Way back in May we had started to work on our stairway to our basement. We finished it in August. I just never took the after photographs. Here’s a quick rundown of the work. Some old self-adhesive carpeting was put down then removed, and the nasty foam adhesive junk was left behind on the stairs. Three bottles of goo gone and a blade cleaned that right up. Next, lots of sanding with a palm sander to rough up the surface for painting, and when the palm sander died, a light touch with a belt sander. I tried to strip the old paint to reveal the old wood, but the wear traffic was too deep in the boards. We used a high-traffic gray paint that is close to the tile we are going to put down in the kitchen to keep a color theme and to tie the spaces together. The alcove storage also had a lot of chips and embedded gunk on the outside. I removed the metal hinges and hardware, removed the doors, stripped paint from the hardware and cleaned the hinges, knobs, and fasteners. I rehung alcove storage doors and my wife repainted the unit with the same paint as the kitchen cabinets. The walls had a lot of scrapes, dents, and ripples in the plaster. I reskimmed patches thoughout the staircase and brought the edges back to a crisp corner. I removed the handrails and repainted them with the same white paint as the kitchen cabinets. The hallway was painted in a muted version of the green in the kitchen.

This is the finished basement of the new house. Not so finished as you can see. Turns out the dry basement is anything but dry. So we pulled up carpet tiles and are trying to figure out where the water is coming from. No luck.
