Basement Finishing The Basics When finishing your basement you need to take basic steps to protect the space including installing a waterproofing system to protect against water leakage and floods and constructing a vapor barrier. You can determine how much work this process will be by conducting an inspection of your basement. You can prevent damage to your finished walls and flooring by installing a waterproofing coating. You can also help prevent flooding by installing a pump system. You may also need to conduct some exterior maintenance as part of your basement finishing project.

Creating a Comfortable Space You will enjoy spending time in your basement if the floor is warm and dry. Carpet is usually not the best choice for basement finishing as it traps water and can become moldy, musty, and even rot. An easy to maintain waterproof floor matting system is much more practical.

You can turn your basement from a smelly mess into one of your favorite rooms in the house. If you give your basement the same kind of attention that you give the rest of your home it will be a delight to spend time there.
