January 16, 2019

Getting Ready for Winter? Don't forget about your basement space! As part of your annual prep this winter, protecting your basement should be near the top of your list for winterizing your home.

Getting Ready for Winter? Don’t Forget About Your Basement Space

We remember that this is your basement space. Chances are you have a TV room, laundry, a bedroom, and more in your basement. Or it’s your top place for storage. Either way, you want an aesthetically pleasing look that feels homey, while also protecting your space. A waterproof coating is essential for this space and can be achieved in several different ways.

Epoxy Basement Flooring

Epoxy Coatings are durable, absolutely waterproof, quick to install, and surprisingly have pretty low VOCs, which is essential when thinking about the lack of air circulation in a basement. Epoxy Coatings have come a long way in color options in the last few years, just check out some of the options you could have for your basement here! Since Epoxy coatings are used in so many commercial floor spaces like restaurants, medical labs, and hospitals, you know they are easy to maintain and can protect not just against water, but against chemicals, oil stains, scratches dents and so much more.

Polished Concrete Floors

Sealed concrete floors have become a new trend in the interior design market offering a lot of new colors, styles, and finishes. Waterproof, durable, and cost-effective, this is a great option for many homeowners! The downside, it will take longer to install since you have to test the moisture in your basement for several days ( up to 30 days) before applying the sealant and even then, concrete is porous and moisture can sometimes sneak into the slab underneath the coating. It also can feel a bit cold, so many people recommend in-floor heating, which raises the price of your floor. But, overall a second great option to better winterize your basement!
