For any homeowner seeking to create extra space in their house, it often means an expensive, messy and time-consuming process of extending the property with additional buildings – a job that may also require the extra task of securing planning permission.
This is why more people are waking up to the ‘dead space’ beneath their homes – the basement. Whether they are simply being used for storage or as a general dumping ground for assorted household items, in many homes the potential that lies in basements is going unfulfilled. It’s an existing space that can be converted for many uses, without the hassle of building extensions on to a house.
But given the nature of basements, any renovation job also requires extra steps for safety. Being underground, basements are more susceptible to damp from the surrounding earth, while any extensive building and construction work carried out within the foundations of a house carries the obvious risk of affecting the integrity and structure of the building.
Basement Now is a basement renovation company that employs a multi-specialised team to take care of all the safety and security aspects, as well as the aesthetic appeal of the renovation. This includes the installation of drywall, which is a crucial aspect of reinforcing the basement renovation and ensuring protection against moisture while insulating the new room. To reinforce this insulation, the Basement Now team also applies taping to the new floors and ceiling, sealing the room securely and supplying a smooth finish to the new renovation.
The work of the team also extends to the decorating of the renovated room, with professional painters able to complete the job using quality paints in a recommended colour scheme – they can paint ceilings, baseboards, crown and cove moldings, and complete wall priming.
Another aspect of a secure basement renovation is in the flooring. Being underground, it is imperative to lay a strong and durable base to the new renovation to protect against leaks or movement in the ground. The Basement Now team supplies high grade laminate flooring as standard in all their packages, adding an extra layer of resilience to the new basement.
Any kitchen or bathroom installed as part of the basement renovation will need solid, robust tiling – and this is another part of the overall Basement Now renovation service. Professional tilers will fix long-lasting tiles that will withstand cracking and protect against leaks.
Every attractive basement renovation has behind it the fully functioning systems of plumbing and electrics. Basement Now employ professional plumbers to not only install new plumbing systems into the basement, but also to fix any existing plumbing problems. The team also includes fully-licensed electricians, who can take care of the safe installation of required electrics, and they can also provide an electrical certificate for any homeowner looking to sell the property.
