What kind of technical work does a basement contractor do?

Basement waterproofing

Waterproofing, dehumidifying, and more. A basement contractor will know exactly what to do to prepare your basement before proceeding to finishing it. They’ll be able to install a waterproofing system, a vapor barrier, install a reliable sump dump system, dehumidify the space, and more. Ensuring your basement’s protection before moving forward with any other basement renovations is ideal.

Crawl space decontamination

A crawlspace is still technically a basement! Not all homes have a crawlspace, but if yours does, it must be properly taken care of because, if issues arise, they’ll most likely be nightmarish. It’s mold’s favourite hiding spot because of the high levels of humidity that can be found there. Of course, this can be quite damaging to the home. To avoid any issues and maintain a healthy crawlspace, there are a few things that need to be taken care of: proper waterproofing, vaper barrier, and keep a steady temperature.

Foundation repair

Foundation repair can also be taken care of by a basement contractor. If there are cracks in your foundation, it’s important to take care of them before moving forward with basement renos.

Basement finishing

Of course, your basement contractor can finish a basement! This will only be completed once all preliminary steps are taken care of (i.e. all that is waterproofing). The possibilities are endless. A basement contractor can turn your space into a rental property, or any kind of space your family can make use of!

Plumbing and electrical

Your basement contractor will take care of roughing in. This means installing all the basic plumbing and electrical work to prepare for all the upcoming installations.


You want a bathroom in your basement? Your basement contractor will make sure to install the necessary elements to create a functional bathroom.

Questions to ask to a basement contractor

It’s important to meet with potential basement contractors before beginning any work. When meeting with them, you’ll get a sense – through your discussions – of whether or not they’re the right contractor for your basement remodel. Be sure to ask them any questions that pop into your head regarding the work that is to be done. The more thorough you are with your questions, the better. Plus, you’ll notice when discussing with potential contractors that you have better rapport with one than with another. Go with your gut feeling – so long as they’re able to properly answer the questions you ask them. If you’re unsure about what to ask them, take a look at the following questions.
