Want your basement remodel to look like this?
One major reason why some real estate agents/homeowners can’t sell off some properties is because of the bad state of the basements of the properties.
While the other parts of the house might be in perfect shape; there is every possibility that the basement might be undergoing some structural anomalies, such as exuding mold odor and damp air, deteriorating woods, tiles, or carpets, stained, cracked and peeling walls, water seepage, and leakages, and other basement problems.
No matter how good looking the other parts of the home may look, once you have a deteriorating basement, it scares away potential home buyers. This is why most homeowners try to renovate their basements before putting up their homes for sale.
If your basement is in this damp and unsavory state, there is no cause for alarm as there are plans you can put in place to turn your basement into a delight, either for your personal use or for your potential buyers.
Plans To Remodel Your Basement
Figure out what type of basement you have. The first step to take is to find out the type of basement construction you have in your home. There are three basic types of basement constructions namely: Masonry wall, Poured Concrete, and Precast panels.
These types of basements walls are constructed with cinder blocks held together with cement or lime mortar.
This is the most preferred and strongest basement construction of all. This is constructed by pouring footing as the foundation of the basement, after which the poured concrete is held in place by forms to enable quick drying.
These types of basement walls are constructed by making concrete into moveable forms which can be transported from place to another for final fittings.
Knowing your basement walls will help you figure out the problems of the basement, the causes, and how to rectify it.
Outline the changes you want in your basement
The walls are basically the topmost problems of basements, and once that has been figured out, the next thing is to outline the changes you want in your basements. This should cover electric outlets, lightings, dust collection, ventilation, flooring, and ceilings.
Draw a basement remodel plan
If you want to DIY the plans for the new basement, you can do that. All you need to do is get the aggregate measurements of the initial basement space, then start allocating the changes.
You start by drawing the walls, then you add the furniture, insert the electrical switches and outlets, don’t forget the plumbing attachments such as toilet, sink and jacuzzi, you can add electronic gadgets. Just add anything you want to your basement plan.
If you don’t want to go through that stress, you can hire the services of a basement planner.
