One of the most common questions I get is “Will I need to replace the carpet in my basement?” I’d have to say the answer is no. I’ve had a full basement for several years and it still looks good.
As I pointed out in my new video, in real life you don’t really need carpeting in your basement. The only thing you should do is to make sure that your air vents are properly positioned and are at least slightly venting. This will prevent moisture from seeping into your basement, which is one of the main reasons you would want to keep your basement dry.
Sure, it may be true that your basement has gotten a bit old, but that doesn’t mean you should throw it out. If you’re planning on tearing out your carpeting and replacing it with new, I’d recommend going with a different material like pine or beech, as these woods are more stain resistant.
If your basement is still in good enough shape to use, then you might want to consider a basement remodel. As I mentioned in the last video, I have the benefit of having a basement that has been well-maintained. My basement has not been touched since I moved in, so it has been relatively untouched. That means that I will not be installing any new carpet or any new walls, which will make the most sense for all of your basement remodels.
First of all, if your basement has been well maintained and has not been touched since you moved in, then we are probably not going to be touching your basement. We will probably be using a lot of duct tape to secure the walls, and that will be your first task after we install your new floors. The floors will be pretty tough to install, and that is because you are dealing with wood (or, perhaps, concrete).
The first thing that we will be doing is fixing and sealing the wood from the walls. This is in large part to prevent water damage. Then we will be removing the old carpet and building new floorboards. This will give us a clean and dry basement. We are going to use the same flooring we used when we first moved in, and then we will install new carpet. Then we are going to replace the old rugs with new ones.
We are going to put down a floor that is at least a foot thick, so that we can start putting a concrete slab in the basement. This will give us a concrete slab for our basement. This is a very important step because it will make the basement a real home from the first day.
The basement remodel is going to be the first thing we do if we decide to move. If we go that route, we will have to make the basement into a home, and we’ll have to make it livable. We will be remodeling the basement to give it a home, and we will be creating a place for the dogs.
You may think this is not going to be a big deal, but it is a big deal. A basement is a place where you sleep, eat, and spend most of your time; a place where you store your belongings, and a place where, if you want, you can even have a nice bathroom. It’s also a place for your pets to sleep, and a place where you can clean your stuff.
You can have a few pets, but that’s all they can do. They can’t cook, clean, do much of anything. They will, however, spend a ton of time outside, which will certainly be an issue. We will be taking steps to make sure they have a nice place to sleep, a place to eat, and a place to keep their stuff.
