Considerations Prior to Finishing a Basement

Weatherseal's basement pre-finishing system by Emecole ensures a long-term healthy environment and the protection of your client's investment.

Weatherseal's basement pre-finishing system is a valued component that no basement should be without.

Repairing a cracked concrete wall, installing a backup sump pump, preventing mold growth and properly insulating and reducing radon gas infiltration are all crucial components of basement pre-finishing. Such repair jobs or enhancements in the basement are usually not tended to until after a problem has surfaced.

Unfortunately, these various problems can happen in a basement at anytime, whether the basement is finished or unfinished. When water leaks, radon gas infiltration or flooding happens in a finished basement, the cost of repairs and lost time are significantly higher.

Finishing a basement is a significant investment to the homeowner. Homeowners should always have their basement inspected by their remodeling professional or a basement waterproofing contractor to find immediate or potential problems before having it finished. Ensuring that a basement is properly prepared before it's finished will reduce energy cost, protect your investment and prevent flooding, toxic mold growth and dangerous radon gas infiltration.

The Finished Basement Alternative

When a homeowner wants to improve the overall atmosphere of his or her basement without having to fully finish it, Weatherseal's basement pre-finishing system offers a highly efficient and economical alternative.

The Emecole basement pre-finishing system will provide an un-finished basement the same benefits of a fully finished basement.

Maximizing Value and Health

Whether the basement is fully finished or not, a dry, clean and usable basement helps maximize the value of the home while reducing radon gas infiltration and mold growth, to provide a safe, healthy environment.
