Winterizing Your Basement and Crawl SpaceNovember 18, 2019
Considering a Finished Basement This Fall?
Basement Remodeling is a Great Idea
There are many reasons for remodeling your basement.
It’s an effective way to add living space, such as a game room, family room, entertainment area, or even a guest room. Perhaps your growing family needs another bathroom or a clean, well-organized storage area. For some, a hobby room, bar, or man cave is the thing.
You may have had the idea for years, but the condition of your basement has always held you back. There are cracked or bowing walls, or maybe a pushed foundation. Several times a year, you have a small flood when the rains are heavy, and mold has managed to make a foothold here and there.
You can’t even imagine the number of contractors you’ll need to deal with mold remediation, foundation repair, waterproofing, and finally a basement remodel. It seems like a daunting and unaffordable task that could take years.
No matter the condition of your basement, it’s closer to becoming a designer’s dream than you realize. The challenges you see are real, but with the right help they can quickly be overcome.

More Precipitation is Expected
Whether you’ve thought about basement remodeling or not, you may be seeing us this fall.
The National Weather Service predicts the Pittsburgh metro area has better than a 40 percent chance of above average temperatures as we head toward winter. The Weather Channel predicts temperatures could be slightly above normal here through December, and State College-based AccuWeather predicts unseasonably warm temperatures. Read more at Patch.com.
While warm weather sounds a lot better than winter’s icy chill, warm means wet. A cold winter draws moisture into the air; a warm one means more rain and no recovery from summer’s saturating rains.
Your basement may pay the price with water finally finding a way in, even if your basement has been dry for years.
Remember to call D-Bug Waterproofing if a wet fall season leads to a leaky basement. While we’re there, consider having our dedicated and experienced crews take your basement to a whole new level, adding new value, beauty, and livability to your home.
