Finishing your basement is one of the easier home improvement projects because you are tackling an area of your home that is not actively used. In addition, you are extending your home’s square footage living space by converting basement storage space into more room for you and your family to enjoy.
At Nuss Construction Company, we have helped many Southern New Jersey homeowners through the basement finishing process. Before you begin a project like this, Nuss Construction will first help with making sure your basement is ready.
Before Beginning Your Basement Finishing Project
Is Your Basement Wet?
Why refinish your basement if you have an existing moisture problem? We’ll check for any water problems and address any obvious and not so obvious signs of moisture. Part of this pre-prep process is checking outside around the foundation of your home to make sure the ground is graded away from your foundation. We’ll also look at your foundation and evaluate it for cracks or any types of separation.
Understanding Building Codes
Depending on where you live, you may have to abide by any number of state, town, local municipality codes. We understand all the ins and outs of building codes, especially as they relate to finished basements. For example, do you want a bedroom in your new finished basement? If so, per safety codes, the bedroom will have to have an egress window. Without proper egress in a basement bedroom, you may not be able to list the room as a “bedroom” should you sell your home.
Starting Your Basement Finishing Project
With no problems to address before building, you can now dive into the heart of the project.
