As my twin sons started to grow out of childhood, my wife and I realized that they needed more space for themselves. The basement seemed like an obvious solution, but turning it into an up-to-code living space presented us with a few challenges.
For starters, our basement had no fire-escape route other than the main staircase inside the house. There was also a section that was wet all the time, no matter what we did. Neither of these conditions was something we knew how to solve, so we called the Eco-Seal team to remedy them.
Eco-Seal started by digging up our basement and waterproofing along the constantly wet area. Next, they installed a new exterior doorway and stairwell, complete with block foundation walls and concrete stairs.
With these necessary renovations complete, we were able to start using our basement as a living space, and it proved even more inviting and useful than we ever expected. With a secondary entrance, we’re able to come and go in the winter without tracking snow into the house. We can take laundry straight from the machine to the clothesline outside. We can keep the mess of our pool out of the main part of our house.
The list goes on, but the bottom line is this: we hired Eco-Seal to do a very specific job and thought that would be the end of it. But with their exceptional service and high-quality craftsmanship, their team enhanced our house in ways we never imagined. The home value has gone up, usability has improved, and safety is no longer a concern, all thanks to Eco-Seal.
