Great experience dealing with RAM restoration. Had water damage in our basement from a storm. Called RAM restoration and they were able to come out the same day. Called us ahead of time to let us know when they would be arriving. Workers were professional and explained the clean up process along the way. Absolutely no issues working with this company.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE
YOU START BASEMENT REMODEL

Inspect your basement

Before you do anything with your basement space, inspect your flooring, ceiling, and drywall for any problems. Make sure water isn’t entering your basement from the outside, for example from exterior walls. And, since most basements have an issue for dampness, inspect yours for any sources of moisture.

Mold prevention

Mold tends to thrive in basements, so you’ll want to reduce the chances of getting mold before you start remodeling your basement.
Typical mold prevention techniques include using a paint primer and coating your walls with latex paint. Don’t forget to seal your floors as well with an epoxy or enamel paint for the surface in question.

Also, you want to maintain your basement humidity at or below 60 percent. Insulate cool surfaces, such as pipes, to prevent condensation. Invest in weatherstripping for your doors and windows to keep the humid air out. Lastly, you can also consider getting a dehumidifier.

Adhere to building codes

Contact your local authority to check what building codes may apply to your basement.
For example, in some areas, codes determine ceiling height. If your ceiling is too low, you may need to call a basement remodeling contractor to handle this issue. Also, since your project will probably need electrical or plumbing work, you may need to obtain the necessary permits beforehand.

Secure against floods

Basements flood easily, so it is suggested to invest in a sump pump system to prevent thousands of dollars of damage in the long run. Some homeowners even go the extra mile and invest in a backup sump pump in case their primary pump fails due to clogging or any other issue.
With all this in mind, your remodeling project may not seem as a DIY anymore. There is a lot of things to take into consideration, and they may go above your construction skill level. Contact RAM Restoration to ensure you carry out your basement remodel safely and efficiently.

WHEN SHOULD YOU REMODEL YOUR BASEMENT?

Remodeling a basement isn’t always a high priority. People usually choose to remodel their basements for two main reasons: structural issues or the need for extra space.

If your basement has structural problems or is contaminated with mold, you need to get to it immediately. In these cases, it is recommended to hire a basement remodeling company so you can resolve your issues safely and promptly.

Having an unfinished basement might make you consider remodeling. However, it’s important to know when to seek professional help. While you can handle some of the tasks on your own, we suggest hiring a contractor is for certain tasks, such as plumbing or electrical projects.

For those who need extra living space, turning your basement into something more than storage is an excellent idea. Can you do it on your own? Well, yes and no. An average person can probably carry out certain remodeling tasks on their own, such as painting the walls. However, if you plan to make structural changes, it’s better to call a professional.
