"Many Homeowners are reaping returns on basement remodels and enjoying the increased living space when doing so!" CALL NOW!!! PH. 1(619)210-0329 OR *Email us your request along with your idea's, plans, pictures to: Whether your choosing to build a Home Theaters, Man Cave, Family room, Bathroom, Bedrooms, Game Room, Basement Bar, or a Wine Cellar we do recommend a secondary source of heat as well, such as a wood burning stove, a fireplace, or a floor warming system. Last but just as important, Lighting, basements need to provide more than above grade rooms. Maximize both natural (outdoor daylight) and artificial lighting. An open floor plan, large windows, and a French door leading to the basement instead of the solid door which is most likely installed there now will help maximize the lighting. Also think in terms of light colors, and mirrored walls or ceilings, resulting in giving small space look mush larger. (PLEASE READ VALUED INFORMATION BELOW) NOTE: BASEMENT REMODELS START WITH SAFE WATERPROOFING, SEALING USING PROVEN PRODUCTS AND MEASURE LIKE SEALERS, MEMBRANES, VENTILATION SYSTEMS, AND ELECTRIC FLOOR HEATING TO REDUCE MOISTURE IN YOUR BASEMENT OR CRAWLSPACES : Basements or concrete slabs are the largest sources of moisture. Pores in concrete do not only let in moisture, but they actively draw it inside by capillary action. The average basement lets in 18 gallons of moisture each day, several times more than bathrooms and kitchen combined! Our inspections include checking basement walls for waterproofing and it's integrity (Pools of water supplies and damp spots on walls). We also inspect water diversions for proper drainage from building. (Grading, Gutters, Downspouts and Pumping Systems). Basements are closed areas so they are prone to high humidity conditions like dampness and potential flooding. Does your own basement or crawlspace resemble a swimming pool in the winter and especially early spring due to big winter precipitation? Each year thousands of homeowners who have basement waterproofing systems will overflow anyway. Depending by the porosity of the concrete surface it may take multiple indications. Depending on the source of your given problem water supply can usually be controlled. Dehumidifiers are used in many basements. But they consume lots of energy on condensing water, which is released into the air as heat. This, in turn, adds to the air-conditioning load. More importantly, dehumidifiers draw in through the concrete more moisture with dissolved chemicals, which accelerates efflorescence and deterioration of the concrete. Minimize or entirely avoid dehumidifiers by eliminating the source of dampness and deep-sealing the concrete. If you have a sump pit, cover it up and seal it airtight with silicone caulk. Caulk any openings and cracks in the concrete with self-leveling caulk. Insulate air-conditioning ducts to prevent condensation. Reduce the amount of water around your foundations with proper gutters, downspout extensions, and by grading the soil. If you have a crawl space, cover the soil with heavy polyethylene sheets and ventilate the space to the outside. Clean humidifiers, dehumidifiers, and air conditioning condensing units regularly with chlorine bleach. From all of Us to all of You have a safe and blessed Holiday Season..... :) Allen
