The Best Basement Waterproofing Contractor and Basement Remodeling Experts for You Its important to find a basement remodeling contractor that is still going to be in business if you need to service your installation or have warranty work done.

Its best to pick a company that youre confident will still be there when you need them.

A wet, damp, or humid basement is considered unsafe, regardless of whether you use the space on a day-to-day basis. Thats because mold and mildew growth can start in the basement and make its way up to the more lived-in areas of a home. Its important to keep your basement dry at all times and stop a potential problem before it can begin. How to Keep Your Basement Dry The best way to keep your basement dry is to find a trustworthy and knowledgeable basement waterproofing specialist serving your area. He or she can help identify immediate or potential problems, and recommend basement waterproofing solutions to protect your basement and family against potential flooding and/or possible mold- or mildew-related health issues. Your basement waterproofing specialist may recommend installing a basement sump pump (with a battery-powered backup pump), a perimeter drainage system, a French drain system, waterproof flooring, basement wall coverings, and/or an energy-efficient dehumidifier. There are many effective ways to keep your basement dry; its just a matter of taking the initiative to speak with a certified basement waterproofing specialist to find out which options are best for your home, climate, and budget.
Unfortunately, a flooding basement will quickly ruin wood, drywall and furniture. And once the immediate flooding has been pumped out, organic materials in the basement- including carpeting, wood sub floors, furniture, and other storied items will be ruined and in need of replacement. Drywall (even mold-resistant drywall and green board) can also easily be ruined by water. The investment made on the home is quickly lost, and the basement remodeling is wasted. Because of this, its extremely important that a basement waterproofing system be installed before the basement is finished. In fact, some homeowners will take the precaution of installing a perimeter drainage system and sump pump inside the home before the basement remodeling in order to ensure a long payback for their home improvement investment.
The last time you went into your basement you felt a little less-enthused about spending time down there. In other words, it was dark, damp and a little stinky so youd rather just stay upstairs. If your basement isnt the most appealing space in your home, try not to just avoid the space. Instead, think of all the ways it could be utilized. Basements are huge parts of the home that could make up for a massive living space, but they can easily become the forgotten spaces beneath the home. The basement can be a great way to increase your homes living space and return on investment if ever you decide to sell your home. In addition, the basement is the perfect get away. But one thing can ruin that for so many homeowners-- water.
