Your basement should not be an area that is just virtually wasted away. We say this because it is quite frankly something that we see in a lot of homes. If you want to use your basement for extra storage space that is entirely your decision. Even in those cases though, you can expand the room that you have as storage. Basements don’t have to be dark and creepy places. We can help turn your basement into a room that you are actually going to want to be in. At the very least a room that you can store things in without your trips down there, being filled with all of the things that fuel your nightmares.
With basements, the first thing that we want to do is make sure that you are not going to have to deal with any type of issue that could hamper your experience or essentially ruin the room that you have us build. One of the first things that we need to do is ensure that water is not going to filter through the walls and cause all sorts of moisture and mold issues down the line. If your basement area is already facing these issues we will be sure to get those fixed before we do anything else!
Things That Can Be Done To Update Your Basement
There are actually many things that can be done to update your basement. A couple of things are just to make sure that actually being in your basement is safe. Such as waterproofing, that we talked about recently. Also, ensuring that the air quality in your basement is good, can go a long way into making your basement a “livable” space. These are the things that we need to do first. From there we can update the floors, add drywall, and do all sorts of things.
Making Sure You Have Enough Power Plugs In The Room
This is one of those things that not many people are going to think about. Until you have painted the room and you have made everything look great only to realize that you have nowhere to even hook up a TV. Installing power plugs in a room is part of actually, conditioning said room to be a livable space. Not all basements are going to be naturally set up to act as another room in the house where someone could actually spend their time in. We aim to change that if that is something that you would want us to do!
Adding Proper Lighting & Ventilation
These are two things that are key in making any basement essentially a useful room around the house. You need to make sure that you have air flowing into the basement. To the point, where it is not going to be too stuffy in there. You also need to make sure that you have proper lighting. Again, both are things that we are going to be able to set up for you. Without this process, being too much trouble!
