Don’t wait to use the extra space you already have! Let’s be honest, most basements are wasted dark space where we store all the junk we will never use. Make use of that wonderful space to create a guest room, children’s play room, home office, exercise/recreation room, personal library or a cozy den. The basement is coming into its own as a functional place to relax.
A basement can be one of the most exciting rooms in your home to renovate because most often they are huge raw spaces. Today, even a basement ceiling can be made, with little effort, every bit as pleasing as the rest of the home. Who says it has to be one room? If you have a growing family or want renters for extra income to pay off that mortgage, build several rooms. Adding half walls can give privacy to certain areas, while still allowing natural light if there are any windows. Basements can be designed for noise reduction, which is great for home theatres. Many homeowners are finding out that this transformation is delightfully affordable.
Remodeling your basement can drastically increase the sale price of your home. If you are remodeling in order to sell it is not always recommended to personalize the basement for a specific use, but waterproofing, insulating and checking for structural damage are sure to be at the top of your homebuyer’s checklist. Next, the homebuyer is likely to check for finished walls, ceiling and floor in the basement. In the mind of many homebuyer’s- if such care was taken to secure the basement, they are assured it’s the same throughout the rest of the house as well.
The most common issue with homes here in the Boston, Massachusetts area is, of course, moisture. Before starting any renovation project we advise making sure your basement is waterproofed from floods, condensation and leaks, in order to prevent or stop structural damage to your home. Termites, centipedes and carpenter ants love a leaky cellar. You could also prevent numerous health issues resulting from the mold that thrives in unwanted moisture, including respiratory problems, asthmatic and allergic reactions. Waterproofing can also prevent cancerogenic Radon from entering your home. Dampness is an excellent conductor of electrical currents, so it is extremely important to have experienced experts like Final Pick Services do the work for you.
Insulation will help keep your home warm in the winter but, did you know it will also prevent condensation from forming in your basement or cellar. When installed properly, insulation will create a barrier between the cold air coming off the floor/underground walls and the warm air in the room from heating. Without this barrier, condensation will occur. As there are many considerations to take in determining where to install the insulation, please contact us to discuss your options. We are happy to advise you.
