Basement Remodeling

What are you looking for in your unfinished basement remodeling project? Think about what you enjoy doing with your family. Are you theater buffs? There are many options worth exploring for what you need to give your family enough space.

The good news is you don’t have to add on to your home to acquire the space you need. You probably already have the space that would meet your needs. Finishing your basement is a very popular home improvement, sure to increase your property value.

Today we see basements serve as home gyms, laundry rooms, home offices, game rooms, new family rooms, home theaters, wine cellars, kid’s play areas, or just a place to entertain guests. Most basements are built entirely underground making it a completely different environment from the rest of your home.

The temperature of the soil is much cooler on the outside of your basement making the air inside cooler as well. The basement walls are made of concrete, which is porous, allowing moisture to make its way in and out of the basement in a vapor form. This can create gallons of water in the air that your building and storage materials will absorb.

The combination of cold and warm air creates relative humidity that can cause mold to grow without the presence of standing water. This can often be a breeding ground for mold and mildew.

Before remodeling your basement, we conduct a thorough inspection and removal of mold and mildew if necessary. Craftsman Custom Design Home Remodeling of Rochester, NY wants to turn your basement into a healthy, finished extension of your home for you and your family to enjoy for years to come.
