Basement Q&A: What Do We Do Before a Basement is Finished?

Wednesday, March 27th, 2019

Q+A question: Does Complete Basement Systems Finish Basements?

To finish your basement, most states and counties have building-specific regulations that must be met in order to legally claim your basement as a fully finished room. These regulations include ceiling height, egress windows with emergency escapes, and basic utilities (bathrooms, electricity, smoke and CO alarms, etc.). Only after these necessities are met can you start adding the aesthetic installments like finished walls, flooring, and furniture.

However, we don’t offer basement finishing because we don’t install many of the requirements necessary for finishing a basement under code.

So, what CAN we do?

We’re the go-to pros for comprehensive basement waterproofing solutions. Our goal is to transform your cold, concrete basement into a dry, mold-free space ready for the next steps of finishing, furnishing, and decorating.

Our patented waterproofing products including interior drainage, sump pumps, and dehumidification guarantee that your basement stays dry for years to come, all without compromising the integrity or look. These waterproofing systems are discrete, easily installed, and prevent any moisture or standing water in your basement. Waterproofing your basement before you finish it means protection no matter your basement's condition.

If you’re planning to finish your basement, make sure you have your basement up to code before you add flooring, walls, and furnishings. Basement finishing requires a lot more than finishing the walls and floors and adding some furniture, but it is a great investment and radically increases the value of your home.

When you are ready to create a safe, healthy, and dry basement, give us a call!
