Many homeowners are finding the space solutions that they need with basement remodeling. A home remodeling project like this can add livable square footage to your home. According to This Old House, about 60% of homes have moisture problems in their basement, and about 38% of those homes are at risk of developing a mold problem. Here is how basement remodeling can end moisture problems and increase your livable space.
Get to Know The Process
Hiring professional services to transform this area into a livable space is a process of several different steps. For example, if you are in the 60% of homeowners with a wet basement problem, one of the steps that will need to be part of the process is waterproofing. Waterproofing entails sheetrock, insulation installation, flooring, and plumbing if necessary.
What Do You Want From The Space?
Advising your design-build remodeling company what you envision the space becoming will allow you to begin a communicative and collaborative basement remodeling experience.
For example, if you want to create guest quarters, you may include a new bathroom in the basement. If you want to create a game room, adding a bar and other features may be necessary. At the basic, you will need walls, flooring, and a way to section the spaces off.
Consulting With a Professional
A basement remodel is a great way to expand the size of your home without changing the footprint, but it is not a DIY project. It is strongly suggested that you consult a professional experienced in this area of remodeling.
A professional with experience transforming basements into livable spaces will easily devise a plan that will match your creative vision as well as provide functional offerings that the room did not possess before. A design-build company can take care of your needs every step of the way, from consultation to construction.
