HOW BASEMENT FINISHING EXPERTS CAN WARM UP YOUR
BASEMENT
  • In order to turn your basement into a warm and
    inviting space, it is important to work with a
    right professional. You may think basement
    finishing and remodeling is an easy task and you
    can do it on your own, but things can become very
    demanding at times. You will have to put in a
    serious effort and invest a lot of your time in
    finishing. You will be better off hiring a pro
    because they know how to take care of everything.
    Here is how a professional would handle the
    procedure
  • The professionals may help dry up your space
    first. Whether you do any finishing work on your
    own or you call in a pro, it is important
    to dry up your wet or damp basement. In
    order to correct the water problems, you will
    have to look for the root cause first. In most
    cases, grading the soil in a way that the water
    flows away from the foundation of your property
    will help resolve the issue. Sometimes, repairing
    or adding downspouts and gutters may help
    as well. If the issue persists, you may
    have to think of waterproofing the walls. It
    will certainly take some effort to fix your wet
    basement, but a professional can help here and
    prevent a moldy basement.
  • Professionals will help you understand the
    importance of sealing the rim joists, especially
    if your goal is to make your basement more
    energy efficient. You need to insulate
    these joists and seal them correctly. Some
    professionals may seal them with rigid
    insulation. Others may have some different
    strategies, but they will all ensure that rim
    joists are insulated properly to prevent any
    energy loss.
  • Some pros may also recommend installing drainage
    mats if you want a drier, warmer floor. In most
    cases, you can use plastic drainage mats, but
    dimple mats also work great because they do not
    restrict the flow of air under the flooring.
    Having these mats installed is a great idea
    because they provide another layer of insulation
    to prevent any energy loss.

  • Lighting plays a big role in basement finishing.
    Professionals can give right suggestions here.
    They may recommend the use of different types of
    lighting. You can have lighting fixtures for
    general illumination and you can also have some
    dimmer switches added to control how much light
    you want. You can also go with ceiling fixtures,
    recessed can lights, and even fluorescent pillow
    lights.
  • Professionals may also make use of heating cables
    to help warm up cold floors. This step alone can
    help turn your cold basement into a dry, warm,
    and inviting space.
  • The crux of the matter is that you can
    have your basement finished in many
    different ways, but asking a professional to
    take care of basement finishing will help
    you get great results. However, it is
    important to ensure that you take some time
    before selecting a contractor for basement
    finishing. Not all of them have the experience
    to deliver 100 satisfaction therefore,
    conduct some research and put your money
    on an experienced contractor only!
