Basement Finishing Who wouldn't love a warmer, cozier house in the winter? Freezing homes are very unpleasant. Cold floors and surfaces force homeowners to wrap themselves in blankets and sweatshirts to stay warm, but there is something you can do that you may not have thought of before: basement finishing. The air in your house moves one way: up. It enters through the bottom of your home and makes its way up to the top, so doesn't it make sense to infer that if the air entering your home is cold, then it will travel upward and make your entire house cold? Your kitchen floors feel cold because the space below them is cold. Finishing a basement can help ensure that the air traveling through your house is drier and warmer. There are several factors to remember when finishing a basement: • The basement environment is different from other living spaces because it is generally damp and musty. • Basement finishing systems must be resistant to water and mold growth.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
