A remodeled, functional and attractive basement is a valuable asset to any Illinois home, so it’s no surprise that this is such a popular project for homeowners to take on. Whether you want to turn your basement into a man-cave, a media room, a guest suite or office space, it is vital that one thing is always done first: waterproofing. Here’s what Reliable Basement Service in Illinois has to say.
Basements need more than a cosmetic fix
Many homeowners think that, like other rooms in their house, a basement just needs a fresh coat of paint, some good flooring and the right furnishings to make it into the perfect space. Unfortunately, because they are underground and form part of the home’s foundations, things are not as simple as that. Prone to leaks, dark and continually subjected to the pressures of soil, water, snow and rain, basements face a lot of wear and tear. This makes them vulnerable to leaks, damp and mold as well as foundation cracks and crumbling surfaces. These issues require a professional fix in order to correct the cause of the problem, any damage that might have been caused as a result, and prevent it from happening again. Committing to a basement remodel without checking for moisture and repair issues could mean that your new space starts to deteriorate within months of your project completion, as mold will simply reappear, cracks will continue to form and dampness will return.
Basement waterproofing gets the remodeling result you’re looking for
Let’s face it; no one wants to spend time in a musty, smelly, chilly space – no matter how good the sound system is. If you want your remodel to be a success, you have to address the real issues of your basement space rather than the more enjoyable cosmetic ones. With the professional assistance of Reliable Basement Services, not only will all your basement’s moisture issues be properly identified before you spend money making the space look good, they will also be solved affordably in a way that helps preserve the comfort and structural integrity of your home as a whole.
