Northern Virginia (PRWEB) June 30, 2012
A finished basement holds the potential to be transformed into a dream room. Whether a homeowner desires to build a bedroom, office, play room or entertainment area, the basement offers lots of possibilities.
“It is best to consult a professional when thinking about a basement remodel; they can give you advice on what can realistically be built in your space. Basement projects often require, structural alterations, along with plumbing and wiring modifications,” said Tim Gatling, Owner of Tim’s Quality Construction. He shares foundational advice before turning a dream into reality.
Eliminate basement moisture. A homeowner must take care of any water or moisture problems before getting started on a basement remodel. A drain and sump pump system can resolve most basement moisture problems. “Normal dehumidifiers, will not always do the trick, make sure the dehumidifier is basement rated,” said Tim. Basement pipes should be checked to make sure they are not leaking. “Pipes could require sealing, also insulating pipes can reduce moisture that is caused by condensation,” added Tim.
Most often, a moisture problem can be traced back to the floor, so chose flooring carefully. “Concrete flooring is porous and can emit moisture from the ground surface below. Installing a good subfloor can help with moisture problems and provide extra insulation and warmth, if a homeowner is installing carpet, laminate or vinyl,” said Tim. Tile is another option. If a homeowner has an unfortunate problem with flooding, tile is easy to clean. Installing radiant flooring can help provide warmth to the floor, if a hard surfaced floor is installed.
“Effective planning is crucial to the success of any project,” said Tim.
