Before selling the home If youre looking to sell your home, a wet basement can be a deal breaker. Home buyers are not looking to purchase someone elses problem, and if they find out that the basement floods, they will often back out of the deal. Home inspectors are trained to find the signs of wet basements, and they will make finding these signs a top priority. In fact, 10% of the homes market value is lost with a wet basement. And because buyers will be reluctant to buy the home even at a discount, it will take much longer to sell it. In the end, fixing the basement properly with a sump pump and perimeter waterproofing system is a fast process- with a quality basement waterproofing contractor completing the job in 1-3 days- and it restores a great deal of value to your home.
Dont condemn yourself; there are plenty of ways that you can get the results that you want without driving yourself crazy. Where are the areas that your basement could use some finishing touches and make your basement remodeling a grade-A project When youve found the right remodeling contractor to help you locate the finishing touches that can really add that flare to your basement that youve been looking for, then you are all set to go! The Support Beam Most basements have a few randomly positioned posts that just tend to get in the way and take away from the beauty of the basement. If your basement has already been finished, and youre trying to find ways to make it a bit fresher and have that added appeal then you should consider working with what youve got! This means, dont look at those poles with disgust and spend all your time worrying about how ugly they are, do something about what it is that you dont like about them.
So what can you do to protect your basement from water vapor damage and leaks Hire a certified basement specialist to install a moisture or vapor barrier on your basement walls and floors. This covering will not only improve the appearance of your basement, but also keep it dry and safe year-round. It is important, however, to install a moisture barrier after installing a reliable basement drainage system, such as a sump pump previously discussed. The two systems go hand-in-hand and are extremely effective basement waterproofing agents. Energy-Efficient Dehumidifiers Help Prevent Humidity and Mold Growth One of the most important steps in your basement makeover is to install an energy-efficient dehumidifier. A dehumidifier works to remove moisture from your basement, thus lowering the humidity level. Why is this important Because mold cannot grow in an area with low humidity and can cause such health issues as allergies, asthma, and skin and eye irritation. Mold and rot can also cause structural damage to your home. A basement dehumidifier can help prevent mold, mildew, and rot by reducing humidity, thus making your basement a safer and more habitable space.
