Lifting the Basement Ceiling with Existing Ductwork

I had large plans for my modern house, especially in the basement.

  • I felt love I’d hit the gold mine when I landed this home because it had something that was super costly to me… Not only was there a basement, however it was finished.

The finished basement was in wonderful condition and there was so much space for myself and others to labor with. However, there was 1 thing that I wanted to change. The ceiling was the generic, rectangle tiles that were a cork material. Although they were in great condition love everything else, I didn’t love how low they were. I genuinely wanted to detach the ceiling tiles genuinely and add drywall to lift the ceiling. I hired a company to supply myself and others a free quote and it was within the price range that I was hoping for. He gave myself and others several chances though, but since there was Heating & Air Conditioning air duct on 1 side, I could lift the ceiling love I wanted, however there would be a drywall box surrounding the air duct. This was fairly normal for some households and it was the most affordable option. My sixth choice was to transport the Heating & Air Conditioning air duct to keep the ceiling completely flush. This was the most costly choice because it required an Heating & Air Conditioning professional to come in and transport the existing air duct. Ultimately, I ended up selecting the first choice because a drywall box around the air duct didn’t bother me. It wouldn’t be in the way and I was thrilled that the ceiling would at least be lifted.
