Basic Ideas to Have Before Engaging In Basement
Development and Renovation
2
We know basements, the portion of a building
below the first floor and may be partially or
entirely underground. If you have plans to do a
Basement Development and Renovation whether its
a new basement home theater room, home gym or a
home office, we can help you make your finished
basement ideas come to life. There are a few
things you have to keep in mind. Here

First thing before engaging in Basement
Development and Renovation is to check with your
local municipality to see if you'll be required
to get any permits. This is particularly
important if you're planning to go as far as
plumbing and electrical work, sort of activities
which may have to be inspected by appropriate
bodies.

Checking for moisture areas in the walls and
floors of the basement before beginning the
planning process should be your obvious starting
point. Your checkpoints should be pools of water
or drips coming through the under-grade walls.
Check outside to make sure the ground is graded
away from your foundation. Also, look for cracks
in your foundation walls and repair that damage
if necessary. After taking care of the obvious
moisture issues with the basement, your basement
can still become a damp place. You'll also want
to add a vapor barrier to both the walls and
floors before framing and finishing off the wall
and floor surfaces.

In spite of all endeavors, even with a vapor
obstruction, dampness can at present be a
problem, so the next option you'll be looking at
is to create a slight offset from the outside
wall by adding thin slabs of wood or metal called
furring strips. These strips can also be used to
help level out a wall that may be irregular to
create a flat surface for adding framing. They
also contribute in creating an amount of warmth
within the basement as warmth is a very prominent
trait of a basement. Insulation can also be
employed as this will not only help control the
temperature inside your basement, it may also add
another layer of moisture control, as well as
help dampen sound from the outside. When making a
choice for the basement ceiling, a drop and a
suspended ceiling offer a way to both conceal and
provide access to electrical and plumbing lines
via the removable tiles. These ceilings will
reduce the amount of space available on the
overhead, so keep that in mind when planning.

As for lightening, you will want to go with
recessed lighting because they won't take up
valuable overhead space that a light fixture
would. It is also easy to fit with a drop
ceiling. Take note that the control room only
needs very light or no finishing at all. These
spaces have specific code requirements for
spacing and framing, plus you'll require access
for inspection and repairs. So those are just
about all you need to know if you have to delve
into Basement Development and Renovation.
