Finished Basement and Major Addition

Increasing the livable space in the home through finishing the basement or adding a new addition provides an excellent opportunity to incorporate green home remodeling. In basement remodeling and additions, ensuring indoor environmental quality through radon reduction and moisture control is paramount. Before embarking on a do-it-yourself remodel, consider consulting with a professional who can help ensure implementation of proper green design techniques. Selecting green options for basements and major additions requires a bit of research, but the overall benefits of better insulation, ventilation, and finishes cannot be understated.
