Finished Basement Construction

Simply having a basement as part of your dwelling increases the property value if you ever decide to sell your house. And if your basement is finished and converted to living space, it will increase the value much more.

Things to Consider When Refinishing Basements
There are different construction methods when it comes to the way your basement is built: Older homes may have clay or stone walls that aren’t as sturdy as newer materials.
Some homes have a crawl space instead of an actual basement.
Builders also sometimes use precast panels when they build a home. Precast panels are strong, but they can still succumb to water leakage.
Concrete blocks or masonry are often used as an inexpensive basement foundation, but they have a tendency to keep water in their material if it gets in.Am
The most common basement foundation is poured concrete, which is a preferred method for builders. Concrete basements are durable and the only way for water to get in is through cracks in the foundation.
