Preparing Your Basement for Finishing
Basements are typically subterranean spaces, and therefore are more susceptible than your home’s upper levels to things like mold, mildew, insects, and flooding. If you have visions of converting your basement into a fully habitable space, such as a bedroom or family room, it’s important that the space is properly prepared for finishing. This includes:
- Sealing cracks and repairing any existing water damage
- Insulating water pipes before boxing them in
- Having your fuel-burning system inspected by a professional to ensure there is no carbon monoxide leakage
- Installing a sump pump if your home is in a flood-prone area
- Inspecting your floor joists for sagging, rotting, etc.
- Testing your basement for moisture buildup and/or dehumidifying the space
Once you’ve established that your basement is free from potentially harmful threats like mold or carbon monoxide, and is sound enough to accommodate walls, flooring, and other interior structures, it is safe to move forward with finishing your basement. The team at Frey Construction can help you determine if your basement is ready to be finished, or if there are certain measures that must first be taken to ensure that your basement finishing project is safe and successful.
