How To Turn a Basement into a Living Space


Unused basement space can seem like a waste, so why not consider transforming it into a living space? Working with experienced basement remodelers is essential to ensure the project goes smoothly, and you can trust the 40 years of experience with Fiderio & Sons. Here are some of the most important steps to take before turning your basement into usable living space.

Take Proper Measurements So Building Codes Are Met

Specific building codes are set for basements and many general basement contractors in CT don’t take them seriously. Take measurements of everything and pay particular attention to the height. Before undergoing any extensive renovations, you will need to ensure everything will be within local building codes. Reliable basement renovation services like Fiderio & Sons can help you achieve this stress-free.

Have A Professional Inspection Completed

The next step is to have a professional inspection completed. Some of the things to look for in the inspection include:

  • Electrical systems
  • Plumbing systems
  • Proper ventilation
  • Radon
  • Rotting
  • Pest damage
  • Flooring
  • And more

When the reliable basement remodelers at Fiderio & Sons inspect your basement, you will know exactly what needs to be addressed to ensure you have a safe living space.

Importance Of Moisture Protection And Insulation

Moisture protection and insulation are critical factors in a basement remodel. Confirm whether your basement has vapor barriers to ensure moisture does not spread and create mold issues. Insulation may also need to be added to keep the room comfortable and reduce noise.

Have A Sump Pump Installed

Many homeowners don’t have a sump pump installed if they don’t use their basement. But if you’ll be using it more, then it’s a good idea to protect it. Our basement renovation services at Fiderio & Sons can help you decide whether a sump pump is necessary. The last thing you want is for groundwater to intrude on your space and have to deal with the damage and repairs that go with it.

No matter what your vision for your basement is, the experienced basement remodelers at Fiderio & Sons can turn it into a reality. We will perform a thorough inspection first to ensure building codes and structural requirements are met. We always keep our customers informed throughout the process to make sure we are on the same page. Our goal is to make your renovation a stress-free project so you can enjoy it even more upon completion. When you’re ready to explore the possibilities of your basement remodel, contact us to book a consultation.
