Design Your Custom Basement
Basement Finishing Basics
Thinking about a beautiful finished basement? A custom designed basement by J.M. Grove can fulfill anyone's needs. First determine the main purpose your basement renovation will be. Watching the children play in the TV room or entertaining your family and friends at your indoor T.V. media room, sports bar or second kitchen complete with a refrigerator, stove and gathering area. The next step is determining a layout for your basement remodel. The task can be overwhelming, and a good way to begin is by determining the activities that'll likely take place in the space. Looking at pictures or at what others have done with their basement renovation always helps jump-start the imagination.Keep in mind that the basement will have little or no natural light so consider this when planning the layout. Slowly but surely this space will spring to life and you'll wonder how you ever lived without it! It's important to identify "trouble" spots such as lowered ceilings, enclosed boiler rooms, ductwork, and possible moisture leak. Uncontrolled moisture will cause a number of dangerous and damaging problems including the growth of mold. Speak to a J.M. Grove representative to determine the best layout for your basement finishing project.
Basement Renovations for Older Homes
If you have an older home and your basement doesn't have enough head room or has a dirt floor, it is still possible to renovate the basement of your dreams. Until recently, overcoming this obstacle by digging the basement deeper was not feasible. However, new innovation and technology has made this a viable solution. Because many older homes were built on a foundation with a dirt floor basement, old house renovation projects might include pouring a basement floor. Older homes that already have basement floor concrete often need it replaced, due to heaving, cracking, or crumbling concrete. Most building codes require a minimum of 7 ½ feet from floor to ceiling for habitable rooms, 7 feet for halls and bathrooms, and 7 feet (with restrictions) for obstructions such as pipes or beams. A common scenario is an older home with a dirt basement floor, and inadequate headroom for a basement renovation project
