Basement Remodeling — Alternatives to an Addition
If you’ve got a basement that’s still unfinished, you’re missing an opportunity to add valuable living space without the expense of an actual addition to your home. Whether you need an extra guest bedroom, a family-style recreation space, or just a comfortable place for the kids to play on a rainy day, your basement is literally brimming with possibilities.
Your first order of business is to find a contractor in your area who’s an expert in basement renovations or remodeling — a company who knows how to deal with moisture issues, how to work around and with the equipment in your basement, and how to make the very most of the space you have.
Basement Remodeling 101
It’s not just moisture you’ll have to deal with when it comes to basement remodeling. There are a number of things to consider like
- How to keep noise from the basement from affecting your main living space
- How to make sure you’ll have easy access to your home’s heating system, water heater, electrical panel, etc.
- How to create a separate means of exit in case of emergency
- How you’ll light the space so it’s safe, cheerful and attractive
- Whether there are any hazmat materials that will need to be dealt with or removed (e.g. asbestos around pipes in older homes)
- What permits (if any) are needed
Which is why you need the services of an experienced basement remodeling company.
