3 Essential Tips for Finishing Your Basement

Finishing your basement is an exciting project for any homeowner but it is important not to get caught up in the excitement and forget the essentials! Follow our steps below to ensure you get the basement you’ve been dreaming of while keeping it safe and in the best shape possible!


Have a vision

If you can’t immediately describe your vision for your finished basement, try to remember the reason you wanted to finish your basement in the first place. The answer to this question is going to be different for each homeowner but it is essential to move forward with this vision in mind and plan accordingly. If you do so, you will avoid issues in the future!


Hold Off on Buying Furniture

Picking out furniture is often many people’s first action after deciding to finish their basement because it is one of the more exciting aspects of the project but it is best to hold off for now! It is safer to wait until plumbing and electrical work are complete so you can avoid possible spacing or design issues.


Waterproof Your Basement!

This step is absolutely necessary to ensure your new basement is protected from water damage and could save you thousands of dollars in the long run. After investing significant time and money into finishing your basement, the last thing you would want is for water damage to ruin your new space and put your project back to square one. Furthermore, B-dry Systems highly recommends investing in a basement waterproofing that has a lifetime warranty to ensure your basement is protected for life.
