Our Basement Renovation Begins With Permanent Waterproofing

basement waterproofing Double BayBasement renovation can add lots of extra living space to your house but beware; basement water leak might put a real damper on your hopes if not correctly fixed.
There are two conditions you need to address for a dry basement, actual water leak, and condensation. Water leak is a quite obvious issue to homeowners but many are unaware of the issues that high humidity can cause to an ended up basement.

Humidity Issues

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 results in higher humidity. Everything permeable in your basement will soak up the extra wetness in the air and cause a foul odor. Dehumidifiers are appliances which mechanically get rid of the unwanted extra humidity from your basement. An excellent dehumidifier is a need to if you plan on redesigning your basement. Even a basement that does not leakage will benefit from using a dehumidifier.

Water Leak

Without doubt, water leak into the basement need to be permanently fixed before you start your renovation project. Start by remedying obvious sources of the problem; broken or non-existent rain gutters, downspouts emptying next to the foundation, ground outside sloping toward the house, exposed underground windows, etc
. After you tire all preventative steps outside, try to identify areas inside where you are experiencing the leak. If a corner of the basement seems to be a specific problem, once again, look outside at your rain gutter downspouts. If you see fractures in the walls leaking, a few of these can be fixed with hydraulic cement or crack injection. If water seems to be coming in from a separated area, installing a sump pump listed below floor level can decrease the water table and underground hydrostatic pressure in that area. If you are not sure or your issues appear to be widespread, it might be best to call in a structure inspector, engineer or other professional to help you identify and solve your problem. There are a range of services available to solve your leak issues. These consist of; outside excavating, re-parging your walls, interior or outside drainage systems, interior cove systems, grout or epoxy injection and others. Most of these choices will need a professional.

Basement Renovation Starts

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