Finishing your Basement Can be Very RewardingWritten by Mark Donovan
Continued from page 1
Installing a Bathroom in a basement can be a challenge, particularly if a pump-up system is required. It is important you meet with a plumber before you start any work, as they will have many questions and requirements for your bathroom. Potentially most onerous aspect of installing a Bathroom may be removal of some of cement flooring. This is a very dusty and messy job!
Also consider heating. Does your existing furnace have capacity to support additional space? If not, you will need to consider putting in a bigger system or creating a secondary heating system.
Finally, and probably most important aspect to consider, is dealing with moisture. A finished basement will quickly loose its charm if water problems create mold and mildew. Basement floors and walls should be sealed and insulated to reduce moisture content in basement. Even with these precautions, a dehumidifier may be required.
