A basement is like a separate home within your home; a getaway if you will. Some people make their basements into entertainment areas, relaxed living area, extra living space or a place of gathering, whichever the case may be the basement offers a refreshing experience in your home that suits your needs.
So if you’re planning a basement renovation it’s best to note a few things before moving on to the renovation.
Coordinate your exits
During planning you should consider where your individual rooms will be and how much those rooms will need within each other. Your rooms should be easily accessible and people should be able to exit those rooms without too much trouble. This is vital because in case of an emergency such as a fire, you need to be able to exit safely and quickly.
Stop any water leaks
You should also get your basement inspected for any water leaks or cracks in the concrete wall that can facilitate a water leak. These leaks should be closed off and any crack repaired so that when your basement renovation is completed your walls don’t become moldy and damaged. Taking this step early could save you thousands in repairs in the future.
Sometimes basements are not built to be living areas and may need lowering. This isn’t unusual as a matter of fact majority of the times people want to lower their basement to create more space for features. If you’re looking to lower your basement your contractor can definitely do that.
You should consider putting in extra wiring for any additional electronic/outlets for kitchen renovations and creating additional waste falls/supply lines for any bathroom renovations. It is much more expensive to do these things after everything has been finished.
