Leaks and Moisture
Basements commonly face issues caused by damp or leaking pipes. In order to successfully finish a basement and to transform it from a storage space and into a living space, it is essential to tackle any areas of moisture or leaks. To find out if your basement has any areas of damp or any leaks we will perform a thorough check of the area. If any leaks or damp spots are found, we will address the base issue to ensure that the problems do not continue once your basement has been finished. Fixes include rerouting downspouts, regrading slopes away from home foundations, and applying water-resistant paint to the walls.
Basement walls are not always insulated in the same ways as other areas of the home. In order to make your basement into a space that is suitable to be used as a bedroom or a living room, it is essential to ensure that the walls are properly insulated. This will help to stop heat from escaping and will provide you with a more comfortable and cozy space that can then be used as a living room or bedroom. Polystyrene foam is usually used as the main part of the insulation. The gaps between the framing and foam will then be caulked to complete the barrier.
Your basement may also need framing before it is a suitable and comfortable living space. Basements are usually the area of the home where things like pipes, valves, or beams are exposed. We can help to frame around these obstructions as part of our basement finishing service. Framing can help to protect you from the obstructions as well as protecting the obstructions from potential accidental damage. We will complete framing your basement by finishing and blending the area. Our services will ensure that you are left with a clean looking basement while simultaneously ensuring that access to any essential areas is preserved.
