Things You Need To Do Before Starting On Your
Basement Finishing
  • Transforming your basement into an enjoyable and
    living space is an exciting project that usually
    brings a lot of emotion, ideas, and excitement,
    not to mention financial calculations to
    determine whether you will be able to afford it
    or not. If you are on a strict budget, dont
    worry, many low-cost ideas will allow a total
    makeover of your basement finishing.
  • However, long before that, there are a few things
    you need to do before starting on your project
    that will save you time, headaches, and even
    money or future problems.
  • There are a few things you need to do before
    starting on your project
  • Declutter your basement. Usually, basements
    become like an enormous trash can where we leave
    all those things we dont use any longer, such as
    outgrown kids clothes and toys, old gadgets,
    broken home appliances, old furniture. Donate or
    sell everything you havent used in a year, and
    throw away those broken objects that you know you
    will never repair. If you have plenty of items in
    proper conditions, consider organizing a garage
    sale. This will help you not only to empty the
    basement but also to gather money for your
    basement finishing.
  • Make a plan for your basement. What will you use
    it for? A family room, an art studio, a music
    room, a guests apartment? When planning your
    basement finishing consider the purposes of your
    remodeling. For instance, if you are creating an
    extra bedroom or a gym, make sure to place it
    near the basement bathroom.
  • Find out about required permits. Many people
    often refinish their basements skipping licenses
    and taxes increases associated with an expanded
    house. Given that basement remodeling is usually
    not visible from the outside, people take that
    risk. However, thats a big mistake. You could
    get caught a be

  • forced to tear it apart and rebuild it. Or, if
    you later decide to sell your house, buyers may
    penalize you on the price for it.
  • Electricity and plumbing installations need
    separate inspections and approval. Dont skip
    them, not only for future costs but also because
    of the type of work. An electrical or plumbing
    error may lead to future damages and
    consequential costs.
  • Check drainage. You wont want your finished
    basement getting flooded and your polished floors
    and furniture totally damaged by water. You
    certainly wont enjoy having to walk through a
    cellar covered by a few inches of accumulated
    water.
  • Consider fumigating your basement, particularly
    if you used it just to store and accumulate
    stuff. Get rid of spiders, ants, termites or any
    bugs that might be inhabiting your basement
    before remodeling it.
  • Finally, consider weather insulation regardless
    of the future use of your basement. And dont
    forget about noise insulation if you will use it,
    for instance, to play the drums or let your
    teens rock band practice in the lower space of
    your home.
  • Now, after addressing the issues mentioned above,
    its time to start the exciting part of the
    project, your dreamed basement finishing!
