WELCOME TO PENGUIN BASEMENTS – OAKVILLE

 

Maybe you’ve just bought your first home. Perhaps you’ve owned your home in Oakville for years. Whatever the situation, you’ve got your eye on doing something with the basement.

 

For starters, you want to finish the space. A finished basement is an asset for several reasons. When you begin to think of what can be done with the basement, finishing and possibly a complete basement renovation makes a lot of sense. Let our team at Penguin Basements help you explore this option and provide some ideas of what you can do with the basement.

 

What’s Involved in a Basement Finishing?

 

Several tasks go into managing a basement finishing. To some degree, the order of how things are done, and even which tasks are included depends on the basement’s current condition. Look to our Penguin Basements team to outline what your basement needs and how long the finishing will take.

 

The typical finishing project will involve some type of foundation repair followed by a mold treatment. There’s also crawlspace encapsulation to consider, along with waterproofing the entire space. The result is additional space that’s suited for more than just a storage.

 

Penguin Basements is one of the best renovation contractors in Oakville. Talk to us about your basement needs and we will be happy to build you one. We also offer financing options suiting your needs.

 

The General Benefits of Having a Finished Basement

 

Whatever you decide to do with the basement, it will provide a few basic benefits. One of them has to do with increasing the energy efficiency of your home. Once the basement finishing is done, it will be easier to control the temperature and humidity in the home. That means saving money on utility costs.

 

Another has to do with air quality. The mold that forms in an unfinished basement has a way of spreading to other parts of the house, including the duct system. Eliminating the moisture in the basement will prevent from forming mold and will also keep the air in your home a little cleaner and healthier.

 

A third benefit is that basement finishing adds value to the home. That may not be a big deal right now since you have no plans on moving. Even so, a home that’s worth more would come in handy if you needed a loan and wanted to use the property as security.

 

Ways You Can Put a Finished Basement to Good Use

 

There’s a lot that can be done with your newly finished space. Among the possible functions the basement can fulfill are:

 

  • Another Bedroom For Your Growing Family: Things are getting a little crowded upstairs. With another baby on the way, you need to think of where everyone will sleep. In terms of personal use, converting the basement into another bedroom makes a lot of sense. You’re eldest will love this, since it means not having to share a bedroom with a brother or sister.
  • A Second Suite: Sometimes you need sleeping space for reasons other than those who live in the house. When overnight guests show up, having a second suite in the basement works out well. Second suites can include bathrooms that ensure guests have all the privacy and quiet they want.
  • A Second Suite: Sometimes you need sleeping space for reasons other than those who live in the house. When overnight guests show up, having a second suite in the basement works out well. Second suites can include bathrooms that ensure guests have all the privacy and quiet they want.
  • A Brand-New Family Room: Every home needs a space that people can live in without having to tidy up at the end of the day. Converting the finished basement into a family room is the solution. It’s fine if the kids leave the games out or if you decide to leave a stack of magazines on a table to read later. If someone drops by and you don’t want them to see the clutter, close the basement door and usher them into your pristine living room.

 

There’s even more that you can do with the basement after it’s finished. Talk with our team and Penguin Basements and we’ll help you settle on the perfect solution.
