Our Basement Renovation Begins With Long-term Waterproofing

basement waterproofing Double BayBasement improvement can add lots of additional home to your home but beware; basement water leak might put a real damper on your hopes if not correctly remedied.
There are 2 conditions you must resolve for a dry basement, real water leak, and condensation. Water leak is a quite apparent concern to homeowners but many are unaware of the problems that high humidity can cause to a finished basement.

Humidity Problems

Because a basement is listed below ground, it will be naturally cooler than the floors above ground. When warmer air from upstairs or outside enters the basement, it diminishes in volume as it cools. This shrinking or “condensing” of the air volume leads to higher humidity. Everything permeable in your basement will absorb the additional moisture in the air and cause a foul odor. Dehumidifiers are home appliances which mechanically eliminate the unwanted additional humidity from your basement. A great dehumidifier is a need to if you plan on redesigning your basement. Even a basement that doesn’t leak will take advantage of utilizing a dehumidifier.

Water Leak

Without doubt, water leak into the basement must be permanently remedied before you begin your improvement project. Start by fixing apparent sources of the problem; broken or non-existent gutter, downspouts emptying next to the foundation, ground outside sloping toward the home, exposed underground windows, and so on
. After you exhaust all preventative measures outside, attempt to recognize areas inside where you are experiencing the leak. If a corner of the basement seems to be a particular problem, once again, look outside at your rain gutter downspouts. If you see fractures in the walls leaking, some of these can be repaired with hydraulic cement or fracture injection. If water seems to be can be found in from an isolated area, setting up a sump pump listed below floor level can decrease the water level and underground hydrostatic pressure because area. If you are unsure or your problems seem to be widespread, it might be best to hire a structure inspector, engineer or other expert to help you recognize and solve your problem. There are a range of services available to solve your leak problems. These include; outside excavating, re-parging your walls, interior or exterior drain systems, interior cove systems, grout or epoxy injection and others. Most of these options will require a professional.

Basement Renovation Starts

remodelling Double BayIf you can spare the additional space, 2X6s are even better because they enable room for more insulation. Never, under any situations, nail furring strips onto the walls. Permeating the foundation will compromise its barrier versus water.
Use building adhesive rather than nails or screws to adhere your bottom wall plate to the floor. It’s okay to nail the upper wall plates into the upper floor joists.
Do not glue down your basement carpet. Carpet is something that is going to break and ultimately need to be changed. Glued down carpets creates a real problem later on when attempting to eliminate it. Tell your carpet installer to utilize building adhesive to install the carpet tack strips around the border. Do not enable them to drive nails into the cement floor.
