Is it Worth Renovation?

Dark and musty with cracked or bowed walls, water damage and low ceilings—is your basement worth finishing? In most cases, the answer is yes. But you’ll have to check in with local codes first. For instance, if your ceiling is lower than seven feet, it could be an issue. Your basement may be more of a crawl space.

Once you’re all clear with build permits, we can discuss the project at hand. Some common issues older basements in Waterloo face include:


Older homes are built with stone or brick foundations. They do not have the waterproofing material that is applied to newer homes, and so moisture is far more prevalent. If moisture is very extreme in your basement, you may need to fix a bigger problem before considering renovation.


Older basements may have limited access and so part of your renovation will probably include fixing this. If you access your basement by a hatch, it can be improved, or depending on the layout, changed entirely. If you have a walkout basement that leads outside however, you could be in luck should you choose to turn your basement into a guest suite or rental property.

Air quality is also often subpar in an older basement. This can encourage the growth of mold. When your basement is finished, be sure to invest in a high-quality dehumidifier to keep it in liveable condition.

In older basements and sometimes newer, you may have to do some or all of the following before getting to the fun stuff:

  • Waterproofing (drain systems, sealants)
  • Foundation repair
  • Sump pump installation
  • Floor prep
