You’re probably using your basement as storage for belongings and documents, but this space has the potential to be something more. Having an open and unfinished basement can also invite mold and mildew which can damage your things slowly over time.
If you’re not sure whether a basement remodel is worth the cost, our basement remodel and siding team at Pro Quality Construction Inc. has shared below some of the great advantages you’ll get:
A Safer Home
Having an unfinished basement can hide potential dangers which will likely affect both your home as well as your family’s health. Of course, loosely fitted pipes can be counted as a minor issue, but a radon gas leak or cracks in the foundation can be more serious. In fact, radon gas can seep through basement walls and compromise the air quality in your home.
By hiring our services, you can be sure your basement is properly renovated. You won’t have to worry about any cracks or gas leaks anytime soon, as these problems were already fixed and repaired!
Your Home Stays Warm for Longer
With proper insulation in your basement, you won’t have to worry about paying for higher energy bills during the winter months. You might prefer hardwood floors instead of carpeting for upstairs spaces, but having carpet installed will also make your basement warmer.
Adding insulation to the walls and ceiling above will also provide soundproofing and help keep the upstairs flooring warm and cozy. But depending on the condition of your existing basement floor, some basement and roof repair contractors may suggest removing the old concrete floor and pour an entirely new slab. This is so you’ll be able to install radiant panels or even add a fireplace, depending on your preference.
A Dryer Basement
Proper ventilation in your basement actually contributes to a higher quality of air inside your home. With our services, we can transform a damp and gloomy basement into one that’s more desirable, dry and bright, which can also be used as an extension of your living space! And to ensure your basement stays dry for longer, consider installing egress windows and exposed lower level patio doors.
