Basement Remodeling Tips

Finished Basements In 48154, Livonia MI

1. Waterproof

It's been said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure – and when it comes to keeping your basement dry, that saying is even more true.

Michigan basements are notorious for flooding during the spring and summer months which can lead to costly mold removal and foundation repairs. The good news is it’s much less painful on your wallet to bite the bullet and get your basement waterproofed than it is to pay for the after the damage has been done.

2. Winterize

As a Livonia based construction company, we know all about the harsh Michigan winters and how to keep the cold air outside where it belongs.

The key to keeping your house warm throughout the year (and lowering your energy bills) is having good insulation and sealing any air leaks in your basement.

3. Install Good Lighting

The right lighting setup can transform your basement from a dark, uninviting room to a place that everybody enjoys (and the kids won't be afraid of).

We recommend a combination of ambient, task and accent lighting to help brighten things up and create a warm atmosphere.

4. Review Your City's Code Requirements

Whether you choose to DIY or hire a finished basement remodeling contractor, you want to be clear on your city's code specifications before beginning any construction. If you do hire a contractor, you'll also want to make certain the company has the required licensing and insurance to safely and legally handle your job.

Otherwise, seemingly minor violations like failing to pull the proper permit or building a room without an egress window can lead to expensive repairs down the road.

5. Build In Storage

If you're considering a remodel but still want plenty of storage space, make sure to plan for closets, shelves and room under the stairway. This way, even if your basement becomes a "catch-all" space for unused items, it won't look crowded or unorganized.

6. Appropriate Flooring

In Michigan, there’s two main concerns to keep in mind for your basement flooring – The likelihood of flooding and the side effects from both cold and dry weather.

For areas such as bathrooms and laundry rooms where moisture is more prevalent, it's best to use a tile floor. Whereas, carpet is often an ideal choice fio areas that will be used for playing games or lounging.

7. Choose The Right Contractor

Whether you want to completely finish your basement or simply update the existing layout, hiring a qualified remodeling contractor is a necessity.

At Pachota Construction, we possess the extensive knowledge required to remodel your basement so it's both functional and aesthetically pleasing. With the expertise of our trained contractors, we can transform your unfinished basement into whatever you want, whether it’s a room for entertaining, working out or a large office.
