Before and After Photos of Drywall, Trim & Molding Installation and Painting: Water-Damaged Basement Repair Work in the Brookside, NJ 07926 area of Mendham Township
This Brookside, NJ home’s basement had suffered from major water and flood damage. After the plumbers fixed the leaking pipes there were not only several cut-out holes in the drywall that needed to be patched but much of the drywall and trim suffered catastrophic water damage and needed to be replaced. The entire basement then needed to be painted after all the drywall, carpentry, and trim repairs and installations. CraftPro was executed the entire restoration of this basement: from the demolition to the drywall repair, installation, carpentry like trim and molding and doors, plus priming and painting. This Brookside basement is not only restored but completely renovated now. We demolished damaged sheetrock and woodwork, we re-installed new drywall throughout the basement, installed new molding, and renovated the entire five-room basement. Below are testimonials from both the realtor and the homeowner, respectively. After that are several before and after photos of this Brookside, NJ drywall and painting basement restoration and renovation.

Restoring, Repairing, Renovating this Brookside NJ Basement: Carpentry, Drywall, Painting
Throughout this Mendham, NJ basement the ceiling and wall damage was fixed by demolishing the water-damaged, mildew-ridden sheetrock and installing new drywall. Where there was just superficial surface mold, the existing mold and mildew was killed and cleaned with bleach and then primed with an oil-based primer. Base-molding and other decorative trim like door- and window-casings were installed, caulked, primed and painted. The woodwork was painted with a brilliant white in a semi-gloss finish. The walls were painted in a neutral classic off-white paint color called “Navajo White” by Benjamin Moore (swatch pictured). This paint color is a favorite for realtors who are preparing homes for sale.

Before & After: Drywall Repair & Painting in Brookside, NJ Basement Restoration and Renovation
The below before and after photos of this home improvement and repair project tell thestory of this Brookside, NJ 07926 basement repair and renovation. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then it has me beat. I don’t have a thousand words and even if I did, you wouldn’t want to read them. Notice that the pipes were primed and painted after the insulation and drywall installation. These pictures capture the essence of the drastic changes that were made – the reasons behind the thoughtful and flattering reviews from the realtor and the homeowner.
As you can see, the ceiling is damaged and, in some areas, demolished completely. We cut and removed the drywall to the studs to allow for a good-sized square piece of new drywall to be installed in a way that fits well and makes it able to be “floated” into the existing, sound drywall. After we applied drywall tape on the joints and several layers of joint compound the patch was completed and primed and painted, as you can see on the right.
This is the laundry room in the basement of the residence. The one wall never had drywall installed over the framing, so CraftPro performed the installation along with molding and trim plus door casing (not pictured). Then everything was painted, including the ceiling joists which were left open in order to allow access to the pipes and wires. We installed and painted base-molding throughout the room also. We don’t try to take on jobs in trades we do not specialize in, but in this laundry room there was no flooring: just some glue from tiling that had apparently been removed. We used a powered chisel to remove the blue glue and filled the cracks in the cement floor with a patching compound. We then applied two coats of an epoxy flooring product along with decorative flakes.
