Remodeling your basement is a great way to add more value to your home and make use of that extra space beneath your main floor. Many homeowners fail to carry out basement finishing services because they don’t intend to use their basement regularly. However, with our quality basement remodeling services, we can transform your basement into a stunning new room that’s great for storing your valuables, hosting friends and family, or hanging out after a long day. With a few added touches, your basement can feel just as comfortable as any other room in your home.
Basement finishing refers to adding interior features to your basement to make it suitable for everyday activities. This includes insulation, lighting, flooring, and wall installations. Many basements do not have these features and therefore feel damp, cold, and musty. Our basement finishing solutions are intended to enhance the environment and make it more welcoming and comfortable. This is done by installing adequate flooring, such as carpet, as well as interior insulation, ventilation, and circulation so the room can be heated or cooled.
As mentioned previously, what differentiates a basement from the rest of the rooms in your home is that it usually comes un-insulated when it's not finished. Insulating your basement makes the room more livable, as air can be retained and filtered through the room. Poor or lacking insulation in a basement can result in frigid temperatures, dry air and can even lead to potential water leaks and pest problems. We’ll help install insulation in both your walls and your ceiling. We can then seal the walls and ceilings, so the insulation is locked in place.
Waterproofing the basement is an important step to making it a room for practical use. Basements are prone to water leaks and flood damages because of their location, so it’s vital that you consider waterproofing solutions to combat the threat of water damage. This can often be done by installing a waterproof membrane that secures your vulnerable areas, such as floors, walls, and ceilings, and waterproofing the doors and windows to deter further water from leaking in through the edges. Locking and sealing mechanisms can be installed around the doors and windows to block water from seeping in.
Lastly, one of the main reasons that many look to finish and remodel their basement is to make it more livable. In order for a basement to be livable, it must meet a range of specifications for safety purposes. The basement must be insulated, have adequate ceiling heights, and have a window for outdoor access. If you're looking to make your basement a livable space, either as a study or a spare bedroom, we'll need to be sure these elements are incorporated into the final product. Without these safety measures, your room isn't suitable as a sleeping area, and likely won't be as comfortable either. Our renovations can ensure your basement is more livable and welcoming with all of the right amenities.
