Identify Moisture Problems.

Basements in McLean are prone to moisture-related issues like leaks and mold. The Foster team will thoroughly inspect your basement to identify signs of water damage. We’ll make a plan to effectively manage moisture by fixing leaks and, if necessary, installing a waterproofing system. Working with a reputable and experienced contractor that is trained to spot and remedy moisture problems can safeguard the integrity of your remodel and prevent future complications.

Define the Purpose of Your Remodel.

Foster Remodeling’s 8-step process starts with your vision. Do you want to add a captivating home theater, a welcoming guest suite, or a private home office? Clearly defining the intended use of the space will serve as a guide as you and your Foster Design Consultant plan the design and layout decisions.

Select Intentional Lighting.

Basements inherently lack ample natural light, making sufficient lighting a crucial aspect of the remodel. We recommend incorporating a combination of ambient, task, and accent lighting to create a comfortable, well-lit space. Your Foster Design Consultant can help identify the lighting your basement remodel requires and select stunning fixtures to reflect your style and align with your budget. 

Assess Electrical & Plumbing.

Evaluate the existing electrical and plumbing systems in your basement. If your plans include adding a bathroom, a kitchenette, or a laundry room, you may need to make additions or modifications to these systems. Foster’s professional electricians and plumbers will ensure compliance with local building codes and eliminate any potential safety hazards.

Boost Energy Efficiency. 

Given the tendency for basements to be colder than other areas of the house, adequate insulation helps maintain a pleasant temperature while reducing energy loss and cutting down on heating and cooling costs. Consider insulating the walls, floors, and ceiling to create a thermal barrier that envelops your basement in cozy warmth and banishes unwelcome drafts.
