So, you’re ready to finish your basement? There are a few things that you need to know before turning your ugly basement into a beautiful space.
Is your basement foundation in perfect health? You don’t want to risk covering up a foundation problem with basement wall panels just to find out that you have to tear the panels down to fix your foundation.
Have you already waterproofed your basement? If you don’t have a system in place to keep your basement dry, then all of the work and money you’ll spend finishing your basement will be wasted. One leak can undo all of your hard work!
We can help you finish your basement and will provide a free basement foundation inspection to make sure that your basement’s in tip-top shape.
Why Should I Finish My Basement?
An unfinished basement is wasted space. Your home is your biggest investment, and if you’re using your basement for storage then you’re loosing money. A finished basement can increase your home value, in addition to comfortable living space.
About Basement Insulation and R-Value
Some of the basement finishing products we recommend are also rated for basement insulation so you don’t have to install insulation and then panel your basement walls. Our basement finishing products are rated on the R-value scale.
“The R-value measures the insulation’s ability to resist heat: the higher the R-value, the more effective the basement insulation product.”
The R-value measures the insulation’s ability to resist heat: the higher the R-value, the more effective the basement insulation product. It’s important to note that different areas of your home require different r-values. So comparing the r-value of an attic insulation product to a basement insulation product is like comparing apples to oranges.
