The Handyguys complete their basement finishing series with an interview of a basement refinishing expert Roger German.
Brian and Paul are fortunate for the opportunity to interview an author and basement finishing expert. Roger German is the author of Remodeling a Basement from the Taunton Press “Build Like a Pro” series of books. Due to the length of this interview, it will be split up into two parts.
In part 1 of the interview, Roger discusses the following:
- How Roger got started with his book
- To DIY or not to DIY
- Mistakes seen
- You can do it cheap, do it fast, do it high quality – Pick two
- Some code issues
- HVAC, heating, venting, cooling options
- Steel vs wood studs
- Water mitigation
We wrap up the show talking about insulation, R values, vapor barriers, and mold prevention, etc. Thanks for listening. Buy the book to support the Handyguys Podcast. Next week will be part two of the interview.
