Why You Need a Pro for Basement Remodels

Here’s a simple enough question: if you’re boarding a plane to Toronto, would you rather DIY? Or when you’re on board a ship that is sailing across the Atlantic—would a DIY sound great then? Nobody would want to go the DIY route with these jobs—as should be the case with any job that requires technical and professional craftsmanship.

Why should basement remodelling be any different?

The Risks of Going the DIY Route with Basement Remodels

For many laymen who have been easily misled by “How to DIY remodel your basement in 5 easy steps” blogs, there’s a lot that comes back to become a problem. Since they take the DIY route with something as demanding as basement remodeling, thinking that (a) they’ve saved good money or/and (b) that they’re perfectly capable of performing the job, they end up with a great number of problems. These include but are not limited to:

  • Unexpected expenses during or a few days after the project has been deemed finished
  • Water damage, flooding, and mold damage
  • Faulty plumbing, heating, and electrical systems
  • Failure to meet codes ending in legal complications
  • Ending up with a vapour barrier that leads to humidity that leads to mold that leads to a great number of illnesses
  • Forgetting to go for floating walls, ending up with major structural damages to the house
  • Not knowing how to properly work out the ventilation for the furnace
  • Not using fire block or foil backed insulation that can easily lead to fires in the framing

Slacking on basement remodels, then, isn’t just a burden on the pocket for the days to come—it can also pose various health risks such as that of fire, flooding, and illnesses due to mold damage.
