3 Things to Do to Turn Your Basement into a Man Cave

3 Things to Do to Turn Your Basement into a Man Cave - Image 1

With the Super Bowl only a few days away, you might be thinking about your watch party setup. Maybe you have a dedicated entertainment space for stuff like this, or maybe you’re all piling on the couch around your toddler’s blocks, trying to avoid the kinetic sand that got spilled earlier. If it’s the latter, your basement could be the answer. It may be too late this year, but here are three ways to get your basement ready to be the ultimate man cave in time for Super Bowl 2023.


Get it Dry and Safe


If your basement isn’t finished, or even if it is but still has obvious problems, you need an inspection from a professional (like us). We’ll check for water intrusions and any foundation settling and shifting and propose a plan to get it dry and keep it that way permanently.


Pick Smart Finishes


The great part about working with a waterproofing company is that we can offer finishing options built to work in areas with water issues. Our finishing products include a variety of flooring options, which can be installed seamlessly with our waterproofing systems and keep the floor warmer than the concrete below. We also have wall options for any level of finished look that can be installed over stabilization products and even tie into the waterproofing systems.


Make it Comfy


Want to really turn that man cave into a comfortable living space? Consider adding an egress window and get rid of that basement feeling altogether. As a bonus, the egress will allow the addition of a legal bedroom, which is not only convenient but adds tons of value to your home.


Make this weekend’s Super Bowl the last sporting event you watch from the Paw Patrol mini recliner. Call us today to get started on your man cave and spend the rest of the year cheering on your favorite teams in style.
