Are you building a new home? If so, adding a basement to your future house plan is one of the best choices you can make. It is estimated that around half of all new homes in North America are built with basements. This is no surprise when you think about it.
Basements are great for additional storage and have become very popular to use as family rooms, exercise rooms, and even “man caves.” They also provide easy access to homeowners when there are pipes or electrical issues that need to be fixed or maintained. And if you live in tornado alley, a basement can provide shelter for you and your family during severe storms.
Concrete is the number one choice of material when it comes to building basements due to its moisture resistance and overall design possibilities. A concrete basement can provide your home with a solid stable base for years to come due to the fact that it doesn’t warp or rust, it’s termite resistant, it doesn’t burn, it’s moisture resistant, and so much more.
Concrete basements are popular for many reasons. If you have any questions or would like to set up a consultation, contact Tom Davenport Concrete Construction by calling 870.449.6593.
