It might seem a bit like a no-brainer to take care of basement water proofing before making the large investment of converting your basement to a finished living space, but you’d be surprised how many times this important step is skipped. It usually happens when a homeowner doesn’t believe they have a moisture issue because they never see water anywhere.
The best course of action is to have your basement checked out by a professional before starting the basement water proofing project. A local company that understands the common soils and building codes is in the best position to assess your home, so you do not end up with a potentially unsafe and unusable space that you paid thousands of dollars to build.
Another reason why you might think about skipping this step is because you fear that it will eat up too much of your renovation budget. You’ll be happy to know that many moisture issues can be dealt with quite affordably, and that beats having to replace what you built because it has become ruined. If it does end up being a larger job, ask about financing options that can keep you on budget.
