Brunswick Basement Finishing

Are you fed up with a damp basement? Are the basement walls cracking or bowing? Are you looking for more living space? Brunswick homeowners find that finishing their basement is the best way to increase the living space of their home without the need for an addition. They are also aware of the difference in price and square footage between finishing their basement and adding an add-on. A 20×20 add-on costs around $50,000 on average, and that’s all the room you get. On the other hand, if you refinish your basement, it can give you the same amount of square footage as the first floor of your home with less expense. The idea of having a bedroom, family room, office, or child’s playroom in the basement becomes a real possibility.

How does water get into the basement?

In many older homes in Brunswick, Ohio, water can seep into a home through three main areas:

  1. The walls
  2. The seam between the floor and the wall, and
  3. The subfloor 

Many homeowners face water seepage in their basement without realizing it, and that can lead to severe water damage in their homes.

The main waterproofing system installed during construction does not last forever. The main waterproofing system includes a sealant applied to the wall and a drain at the foundation’s base. Basement leaks can occur after many years or when the sealant has worn out. Also, the foundation drainage system may not be functioning properly any longer leading to water damage to your basement.

Brunswick homeowners planning to renovate their basements should ensure it is waterproofed before they start work inside.
