Why Should You Remodel Your Basement?

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018 by Sara Figueroa

Homeowners are more likely than ever to remodel their basement. Why? The initial investment is worth the numerous benefits that come with a finished basement. This blog will go in depth for the reason why you should remodel your basement.

What is the first thing you think of when you think of your basement? Is it dark? Musty? Wet? Wouldn’t you want your basement to be a calm and relaxing area that you enjoy spending time in? With the right products, planning and execution, you can transform your basement into your dream area in your home. 

Before anything else, be sure to waterproof your basement before you think about the remodeling. Materials like wood studs, fiberglass insulation, plywood and gypsum board easily succumb to moisture damage, making them unsuitable for basements that already have a damp, dark environment. They provide an ideal habitat for mold that can cause allergic reactions and respiratory ailments and damage to the finished look of your basement. A dry basement is a happy basement!

Now your basement is waterproofed and you want to remodel. What are the reasons why you should with our company?   

  1. Moisture and mold free. With over 30 years of basement waterproofing and dehumidification experience, Basement Systems has the best products and techniques available for keeping your basement dry. Our basement finishing products (wall panels, flooring, molding, ceiling tiles and more) are waterproof and won't support mold growth. When you combine the best moisture control techniques with moisture and mold-resistant materials designed specifically for basements, you've got the best formula for a beautiful, long-lasting basement transformation.
  2. Inexpensive extra space. Remodeling your basement is an excellent way to utilize the space you already have. A basement renovation adds a quiet, private space for a fraction of what you'd pay to build an addition and unlike an addition, basement remodeling won't diminish the size of your yard.
  3. Excellent return on investment. Finishing all or part of your basement is a definite way to increase the value of your house. A basement remodel ranks right up there with kitchen and bath remodeling in terms of improving a home's resale value.
  4. Energy savings. Many unfinished basements have too many air leaks and too little insulation. As a result, the basement can waste energy and compromise the comfort of upstairs living space. Adding insulation and super-efficient windows in the basement will improve your home's comfort while saving money on heating and cooling costs. There's a bonus for upgrading your basement's energy efficiency: You may qualify for rebates for certain energy upgrades.
