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.
Water Damage What are the signs of water damage Sometimes the damage is very noticeable. For example, when there are water stains on the walls, this could be from previous water damage, whether or not you were living in the home when it happened. In addition, if you find cracks on your walls or buckling walls your future is likely to include water damage. How does your basement smell If youve noticed a musty smell or some guests have commented on a particular smell, it could be from mold growing in your basement. Perhaps youve never seen mold in your basement-- doesnt mean its not there! The Infamy of Mold Moldy isnt the best word to use to describe your basement, or any of your homes for that matter. Unfortunately, mold is also very sneaky and a lot of time passes before many homeowners notice the mold in their basements.
Moisture! Besides the cracks and buckling walls, mold is another sign that your basement needs to be waterproofed. In addition, basement waterproofing is ultimately the only way to remove mold in your basement. Basement waterproofing is more than just installing an internal or external drainage system, but its actually a process including crack repair as well as the installation of items such as a dehumidifier and/or sump pump. There are many ways to help waterproof your basement, thus remove mold-- but theyre all in the category of moisture control! Basement Waterproofing Benefits Not only can you remove the mold, but youll also be able to improve the air quality in your home. Its been estimated that a third to a half of the air on the first floor comes from the basement or crawl space, which means that a cleaner basement helps cleanup the rest of the homes air.
Remodeling Plans The efficiency of your basement design depends on how well you have converted your basement into an inhabitable area. You can create a recreational room for the family, home theater, wine cellar, teenage room, childrens playroom, spa, exercise gym or any other utility room of your choice with your basement. The actual plans and designs for your basement can be different depending on what you want to do with it. If you design your basement as a part of living space, you should also consider adding a basic bathroom to the basement to prevent frequent trips up the stairs. Preliminary Repairs Before starting with the basement remodeling, you should first take care of problems in your basement.
