Remodeling your basement is a great way to add usable space to your home. You can turn your basement into a den, an extra bedroom or a media room, just to name a few ideas. However, it’s important to be adequately prepared before starting this project. JLR Exteriors Home Improvement, an expert remodeling contractor, explains more:
Install an Egress
According to local building codes, your basement should have an egress. This is an exit point besides the doorway. Work with your contractor to follow the local building code for this and determine what kind of egress point you need. Fortunately, there are many types of egress windows to choose from.
Deal With Moisture
Moisture is your number one enemy when it comes to remodeling your basement. As a basement remodeling expert, JLR Exteriors Home Improvement recommends dealing with moisture issues before the project begins. Preventative measures can include using waterlock paint or sealing cracks with caulk.
Focus on the Lighting
Your remodeled basement needs a bright lighting system to make it a warm, welcoming and relaxing space. Unfortunately, height restrictions can limit your lighting options, so talk to your basement remodeler early on to determine the best lighting options for your project.
