Great St Louis Basement Design and Results
Cover These 5 Bases and You're Well on Your Way . . .
(1) Does Water Leak Into the Proposed Living Space?Is the basement currently dry? How is it during one of the season's biggest rains? If not, handle this first with a reliable and trusted St Louis basement waterproofing contractor like the one found on the link.
(3) Maximize Your Investment With Basement Bedrooms
As a professional basement contractor with 20+ years of experience in St. Louis, here are some guidelines that will be helpful when planning a bed room that will satisfy St. Louis building codes. If you live in another area, do check into building codes specific to your region.
Main specifications MUST Include:
-A light with a switch of course.
-A smoke detector in the bedroom and just outside the
-A clothes closet.
-An arc-fault interrupter circuit breaker (must be installed
powering all receptacles).
-An egress window with a minimum clear opening of 5.7 sq. ft.
and whose sill height is not more than 44" off the floor.
(4) Advantages of a Full Bathroom with a Shower
This will be an especially valuable accompaniment to a new basement bedroom and/or family room. Picture how a teenager, house guest, or basement party goer might appreciate the convenient location of this bathroom.
(5) A Reliable and Competent Basement Finishing Contractor
There are some basements finished reasonably well by home owners and I certainly wouldn't want to discourage an ambitious individual from going through what could be a very rewarding process.
That being said, whether you decide to tackle the job yourself or hire it out, be WELL advised as to all the many special requirements of your particular municipality, because they will vary and the consequences for non-compliance can be rather unpleasant.
If you hire a contractor ...
DO Insist on seeing the contractor's previous jobs and DO talk with his previous clients to see if his past performance and job quality meet with your standards. This will help insure your best possible experience.
The basement finishing process when done well will add much to the family's quality of life. By hiring an experienced and reliable basement finishing specialist you will help insure the best use of your valuable time and money as well as completing a great space the whole family can enjoy.
I hope these guidelines will be helpful when you decide to finish your basement. -Steve Cassilly
