Before You Finish Your Basement...

Flooding In A Finished Basement

Few things can destroy a newly finished basement like groundwater flooding or a plumbing failure.

Taking a few precautions before a flood occurs can prevent this issue and protect your home. This includes eliminating all existing and potential sources of flooding, and addressing any issues with humidity in the space.

If you have a one-story home with a full basement, then that basement represents a major portion of its usable space.

The best way to make use of this space is to finish the basement into a new, comfortable living space. But like all home improvements, a little preparation beforehand can go a long way to protecting your investment.

Finishing The Basement

An unfinished basement is a prime candidate for creating new living space in your home. Before any construction begins, it already comes with outer walls preconstructed, and many pipes and utility lines already in place.

Additionally, the earth around the basement makes it cooler than the outside air in the summer, and warmer in the winter. Making this space comfortable requires insulation and a little extra work from your HVAC system.

The Challenge Of Basement Finishing

Homeowners who have a wet basement are often reluctant to invest in finishing, worrying that water damage will ruin their new space.

However with a little preparation (including a warrantied basement waterproofing system), your basement can be permanently protected from any moisture damage to drywall, insulation, or property.
