Basement Concrete Floors

Concrete floors are a popular and versatile option for homeowners in both finished and unfinished basements. Having work done on your floors is a great way to improve the appearance of your basement while solving a number of issues that homeowners may face when it comes to their basement floor. Some older homes have unfinished basements with dirt floors. In these homes the basement is not often utilized to its full potential. Homeowners may avoid their basement because it is not an inviting space. It can be inconvenient to go into basements with dirt floors. An example of this is having to put on shoes when entering the basement in an effort to avoid bringing dirt into the finished areas of the home. Adding a concrete floor will transform this unusable and unsightly space into a fully functional room. This will improve your daily living space by giving you access to a new area of your home, while also increasing the home’s value.

Some homeowners that currently have a concrete floor can benefit from redoing their floor. If you notice cracks in your concrete floor, you may want to look into having the cracks repaired. Doing so will improve the appearance of the floor while also protecting the floor from unwanted moisture that may seep through the cracks. Repairing the floor cracks in a timely manner will also prevent the size from increasing and the cracks from spreading.
Some basements are built with insufficient standing room. Redoing the concrete floor by digging down and lowering the floor will increase head space, again making the basement a more enjoyable and inviting space. This may be a necessary first step in the process of finishing your basement. Having a high-quality concrete floor poured in the basement, while keeping the structural integrity of the home, will ensure that the investment you put into finishing your basement will last for the lifetime of the structure!
