Planning to Remodel Your Basement?
One area in your home that can offer you unlimited possibilities and outcomes and increase the value of your property is remodeling or renovating your basement. Besides the increase in the value of the property, remodeling your basement will add new functionality to your home; more bedrooms, efficient storage, another kitchen, kitchenette or coffee bar and in general more space for entertaining.
Proper planning is essential when remodeling your basement. Check all beams, columns, to make sure you have the support you need for your new construction, framing walls, installing insulation, hanging drywall, plumbing and wiring electrical. Hiring the professional per each trade is essential for the success of your project. MCC has a network of subcontractors that can help you with any roofing, plumbing, electrical, framing, insulation, HVAC and any other remodeling or construction needs.
Are you in need of another kitchen, or maybe add a bedroom, bathroom, movie room or coffee bar to you home? The basement can be a perfect space for any of them or all of them.
Evaluate Your Space. The first step you need to do when you want to remodel your basement is to check and evaluate your space. Think about the elements that you want in your basement, and assess how you or others would like to use this space.
If you want to get the most of the space in your basement, it is best to contact your designer, architect or contractor to help you maximize the area that you have.
It is essential to let your contractor look over these areas to ensure that your basement is safe for remodeling, or if not, they can help you repair it. Choose a contractor that values safety and never work without proper permits. Getting permits from the city where your home is located will secure that the contractors working at your home are building with safety standards and the job is up t0 code.
Floor Plan. Creating a floor plan for your new remodeling project should be a priority after you and the professionals that you are working with have inspected your basement.
Waterproofing Your Basement. The basement is known for being damp and prone to molds. Therefore, it is expected when remodeling your basement that you will have to do some waterproofing job, since ventilation and natural light can't get quickly into these areas. A good contractor will suggest that you waterproof your basement. But before you can start to waterproof your basement, if you had any issues with water, mold or humidity in your basement start by locating the cause of why your basement floods or why has mold or is humid. The problem will be self-evident if your basement floods after heavy rain. Then you should direct the water away from your basement with the help of gutters. Another way is to ensure the drainage system is working correctly and doesn't have any issues.
Once you have determined the factors and fixed them, you can waterproof your basement. When you waterproof your basement, make sure you hit the cracks and holes inside and outside the walls and put enough waterproof substance so that the pores on the floor and walls can thoroughly absorb it. You are securing your basement from water problems in the future.
Budget. Determine the cost of the materials and labor you will spend on your basement remodeling project. Notify your contractor about how much budget you allotted for that project before starting your basement remodeling and ask for adjustments of expenses.
MCC, provides free consultation and estimates before proceeding with your remodeling project.
Lighting. Your basement is not an exception to getting the proper lighting it deserves. When you can achieve that right amount of light for your basement, it can accentuate your interiors' beautiful features and make any room livelier and happier instantly.
Typically, basements do not get sufficient sunlight, but they don't always have to be dark and dreary. Adding windows to a basement is important to have abundance of natural light. Installing an egress window can help provide your basement with natural light; and it can also serve as an exit door in case of emergencies. The best light to install for your basement is recessed lighting, achieving that ambient vibe and designed to spread light throughout the entire space.
Ventilation. Proper ventilation of your basement prevents molds from growing and saves you from any respiratory issues. When you properly ventilate your basement, it gives you better air quality and comfort. The economic and best solution for ventilating your basement is with portable ventilation- this is your answer if your basement doesn't have any windows. Portable ventilation, all you need to do is place an air purifier in your basement. An air purifier works by drawing air into the unit and moving it through a series of filters. These layers trap various microscopic particles, including mold and mildew spores, allergens, bacteria, and dust. After the air purifier has purified the air of contaminants, it then pushes the clean air back into your basement. This method keeps the air moving through space.
