6 Steps To Prepare Your Basement For A Remodel
15 Jun, 2016 Basement
Who doesn’t want a smooth basement remodeling process?
If planned well, your basement can be an asset to your lifestyle. It doesn’t matter whether you have a big or small space. We can help you prepare your basement just right before the grand remodel.
Here are some things to look forward to:
Clear Up Your Space
You need to understand that you need to get rid of all the clutter in your basement. Take away everything from furniture to your old picture albums. With a clear basement, you might get another idea on how to restore your long gone and forgotten space.
Dry Up Your Space
It is common for moisture to accumulate in your basement. Although you can’t permanently remove the moisture, you can always do something to lessen it. Foundation problems usually cause poor insulation. Have your basement assessed by your remodeler and see what they have to say regarding insulation.
Check Out For Molds
Are there molds in your ceiling and wall corners? Pay attention to mold accumulation before completely remodeling your basement. This way you will know how to prevent them in the future.
Insulate Your Space
You may not notice it but insulation is a critical issue. Insulation has a huge impact on your basement’s moisture as well as your family’s health. Hire an HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) professional to examine your basement and plot an insulation plan that you can use during the remodel.
Know Where To Place Plumbing And Electrical Functions
Are electrical outlets 122 cm above the floor? Are there any rust appearing on your fuse box? Are there signs of corrosion in your pipes? Have a professional plumber and electrician assess your needs in the basement for safety purposes.
Set A Remodel Date
Contact your remodeler right away and agree on the dates where you want to remodel your home. Before doing this, you need to be sure that you have hired the right designer and remodeler.
