TIPS FOR YOUR BASEMENT RENOVATION IN CHICAGO
Take Care of Basement Water Issues First
Your basement may only have some dampness or it might have consistent leaks or even flooding. These issues should be the first thing fixed prior to starting any basement finishing in Chicago. But a finished basement will only work for you if you put some planning into it and handle it with quality workmanship. So handling water problems is important and solutions may take some time to complete. It’s best to begin with a local home inspector that specializes in solving basement or foundation waterproofing.
What is the Best Use of the Basement?
Use your basement space in a way that complements your basement characteristics. Basements usually have issues with natural light, for example, so a home theater would be ideal. And, you will usually have full access to water lines, heating ducts, and the electrical box, so adding a bathroom is often easier to do than it would be in the rest of the home. With our basement remodeling in Chicago, you can have everything you need in your basement.
Help for Your Basement Design
Your basements may be a blank slate now, but it can end up being your favorite space in the home with the right planning. We have basement remodeling contractors in Chicago who can help you develop a plan to give you the basement you always wanted. Detailed planning is the starting block of creating a basement space that is functional, beautiful, and comfortable.
Don’t Forget About Air Circulation
At the time of your home construction, there may have been different code requirements with regard to registers or vents in the basement. During your basement refinishing in Chicago, think about achieving better air circulation and adding openings as needed. It’s important to include a return air duct far enough away from the furnace so that it is not affected by exhaust fumes running back into the house. To remain on the safe side, our basement remodeling contractors in Chicago can install a carbon monoxide detector as an early warning system in your basement, so you can know if there are any issues with venting and air circulation.
Let in the Natural Light
While natural light is probably not what your basement was made for, it’s always best to let more in. It’s easy to do when your basement is expanded above ground, with new window additions or by enlarging existing windows as part of your basement remodeling in Chicago. You may also dig window wells for your existing windows, but you run a greater risk of water problems if you do not include waterproof covers. Our basement remodeling contractors in Chicago can enlarge window openings, which can serve to add alternative escape routes should the need arise. Some homeowners share a concern about basement windows being an ideal access point for thieves.
