Basement Renovating

Basement Finishing - Order of Operations

Previous Next
 
I would like to know the order in which I should do things while finishing my basement. Should I installl carpet, then hang the doors or hang the doors, then installl the carpet. I can do it either way at this point but I do not know what is best.

Answer:
As far as the order of which to do first, it does not matter. Some people like to do the carpet last, then they can use the basement to cut all their trims without getting the carpet dirty. If they hang their doors first, they should leave the doorjambs up about 3/8 of an inch. This is so they can tuck the carpet under the jamb. If they have a garage to cut in, they can put their carpet in, and then installl the doors after.
