Many homeowners understand the difficulty and the expense of finishing a basement, but they also understand finishing the basement of their East Canton home is more affordable than building an addition. For example, a 20×20 family room added to their existing home will cost them an average of $50,000. This addition is much more expensive than finishing their basement. Furthermore, their basement can give them the same square footage as the first floor, without restricting themselves to the 20×20 room. East Canton homeowners can have a family room, an office, a TV room, or a child’s playroom. Those are all possibilities they can have with a beautifully finished basement.

Finishing your East Canton Basement Well The First Time Around
When you hire Pioneer Basement Finishing, we will begin the process of finishing the basement of your home by doing a thorough inspection. We will check the foundation to make sure there is no water damage, water seepage, or bowed/cracked walls. Our team will look for any moisture build-up or wall bowing. They will inspect the basement for any surface water seeping through the basement walls through cracks, weak mortar joints, or subfloor. If the problems are coming from the interior or exterior of the home, our talented team will find the problem before beginning the work.
Can You Protect Your Home From Water Damage?
Yes, you can protect your home from water seeping into the foundation and finding its way to the basement floor. Clean the gutters of the home yearly and after the fall season. Make sure all leaves and debris are not clogging the gutters and preventing the water from flowing freely. In other words, clean gutters are your best and the first line of defense to protect your basement from water leaks. Also, securing and replacing downspouts to allow the water drainage from pooling around the foundation is important. Do you have a drainage system in place? If so, make sure it is working properly. If there are any abutting concrete like driveways, patios, and sidewalks, you need to fix those and make sure the water is not draining into the basement. Any rainwater you have around the foundation will eventually find its way to the basement of the home. It is imperative there is no water accumulation around the foundation of the home, and the drainage from rainwater is at least ten feet away from the home.
Where Is The Water Coming From?
There are 3 main areas where water seepage can happen. The walls, the seam where the walls meet the floor, and the subfloor.
The main waterproofing system of the home is installed during its construction. It consists of a sealant on the wall, and a drain at the bottom of the foundation. The sealant doesn’t last forever. After many years, the sealant is gone and water can find its way to the basement. The older the home the more likely it is water will seep into the foundation. Likewise, the home’s drainage system installed might not be working properly. In many cases, water in the basement of the home is a combination of both these issues.

How Much Will It Cost To Finish My Basement?
The price of finishing the basement of any home depends on many variables. For example, the place where you live, the square footage of the home, the materials you use, and the labor price. If you Google the price of a finished basement, Google will give you an estimate. The prices can range between $25 and $50 per square foot or as high a $90 per square foot. For your East Canton home basement, the choices you make in materials can also alter the price as well.
Why are prices so different? Because there are many variables that can change depending on your choices. Different types of flooring, ceiling and lighting choices can take the price higher than you think. Ceiling options can be as expensive as you want. If you choose to install a drywall ceiling instead of drop tile, the price will change. Even though drop tile ceilings are more expensive to install, it is the preferred choice of many East Canton homeowners. So why do homeowners prefer drop tile instead of drywall?
Drop tiles are pre-finished, so there is no taping, mudding, or sanding. The process of installation is faster and cleaner as well. More importantly, a drop tile ceiling will give you access to the water pipes, or electrical system in the home in case you need it in the future.
The price of finishing the basement can increase if you want many rooms installed. If you want a wet bar area or bathroom, the price can increase. Keep in mind, the more rooms you want in the basement, the more drywall, trims, lights, and ceiling material are needed. There are many options for a finished basement, but, if you are serious and want to do it well, have a budget. If you have a budget and want to stick to it, Pioneer Basement Finishing can provide you with options.
