We take all factors into consideration
All these variables make it essential for basement remodeling contractors to know the climate and know the terrain before drafting any designs. Ken Moniz is a lifelong Cape Cod resident who has seen hundreds of basements in the region. So, when you invite us into your home to discuss a basement remodel, you are talking to an expert.
After an initial assessment of your basement, we will start a discussion about what you envision for your basement remodel and the feasibility of that idea. For example, if you want a media room or “man cave,” then consideration should be given to availability of cable connections and routers as well as electrical outlets. Basements also tend not to be the best lit places due to lack of windows and natural light. So, planning the lighting is another consideration we will review.
Another strong point of interest for your basement remodeling project is flooring. Most basement floors are cement or concrete. Neither make for a very comfortable or attractive surface for a basement remodel. Yet carpeting may not be the solution either. We can plan for a worst-case scenario regarding moisture or flooding. Sometimes there’s not a whole lot you can do. So, selecting a flooring—perhaps tiles that can easily be maintained–might be the best option.
