Basement Finishing Preparation


Below you will find important information to consider before investing in a basement finishing system by Mr. Basement. Basement finishing can increase the living space and value of your home. Before starting to finish your basement, you must ensure the area is dry, free of mold, and that you have tested and mitigated for any radon leaks. Additionally, prior to starting a basement remodeling or finishing project, the foundation must be solid and shouldn't have any uncorrected bowed or cracked foundation walls.

Key factors to the long term success of a finished basement:

  • Stopping moisture or water aka waterproofing
  • Repairing any existing foundation wall problems
  • Using materials resistant to mold
  • Installing a dependable battery back-up sump pump

Mr. Basement has seen tens of thousands of finished and unfinished basements with basement waterproofing problems ranging from dampness, to mold, to all-out flooding. If you are going to finish your basement, this is what we recommend to prepare it properly. If you already have finished your basement, the majority of these precautions can still be made.
