Additions & Remodels
Less Expensive than Purchasing New House
While this might seem like a "no-brainer," it needs to be mentioned. It is typically cheaper to build an addition than to buy a new home that equals the space of your existing house plus addition. At the very least, the closing costs involved with selling your old house and buying the new house would push this option over the top.
Addition is 100% Your Creation
You may have an old house, but the addition is space that you can claim as your own. It's like designing a whole new house without the expense of a whole new house. Fire up your design software and go for it!
Smartest Way to Add Space to House
When you objectively look at the various ways to add space to your house, addition-building clearly comes out ahead of other methods, such as basement or attic remodeling or adding a sun porch.
Basement Remodel
Remodeling your basement can provide a number of benefits such as increasing your living and storage space. Before you begin your basement remodeling project, consider all functions you’d like your new basement to serve.
There's a lot to consider when planning a basement finishing project. Besides what you're going to do with the space - which is the fun part - you need to decide on how you're going to finish or remodel it and what contractor to hire. Basement home remodeling can be a daunting process. The basement specialists at Tri-State Remodeling, LLC. can help. With a free design consultation and presentation of various finishing methods, including standard drywall and many basement finishing systems, a TSR basement designer can walk you through your basements transformation with an in-home multimedia presentation.

Plumbing
We like to start each job on the right foot, more specifically, on the right covered foot. It's a myth that a plumbing repair begins the moment a wrench meets a fitting, or a rooter goes down a pipe.

And, more importantly, how attentive we are to our clients’ needs.
Now courtesy may not be the first thing you think of when it comes to plumbing. But for us, it's one of the most important tools we carry. Certainly, courteous behavior won't actually stop a pipe from leaking, or unclog a drain. Then again, plumbing is about much more than just pipes and drains. It's about making sure our clients fully understand the job that will be done. It's about treating all parts of the home, not just our work area, with the respect and consideration they deserve. Most importantly, plumbing is about making our clients feel they've hired the right plumber the moment we set foot in their homes. After taking care to cover that foot, of course.

Ceilings and wall surfaces often get nicked, scuffed, fingerprinted or marred in spots. Many a problem can be repaired by the conscious do-it-yourselfer. Always try spot-cleaning the area with soap and water first. If that doesn't work, you should be able to sand it down, then re-prime and shoot a knockdown texture on it. Always use drywall screen instead of sandpaper. When these DIY fail, contact Tri-State Remodeling, LLC wall and ceiling service and start getting those vital parts of your home repaired today.

Waterproofing

Leaky Basement Walls

Leaks and squeaks drive homeowners up the wall. Luckily, the source of most leaks and squeaks can be located and fixed with a little patience and persistence.

Although squeaks can be a major nuisance, water leaks cause far more damage. A basement is a prime location for leaks considering the fact that it is embedded into the earth and a magnet for any water from rain or irrigation. All types of foundation are subject to leaks whether it is a block, brick or poured-in-place concrete.

Basements leak for many reasons which include:

  • Surface run-off due to poor grading.
  • Lack of or defective gutters and downspouts.
  • Vegetation too close to foundation walls.
  • Blocked drainage at the base of a home's exterior walls.
  • A defective or missing footing drainage system.

Preventing Water Damage

There are four simple ways to prevent your home from being damaged by water. They include maintaining proper grading, installing and maintaining gutters and downspouts, reducing the amount of irrigation near your foundation and a properly functioning drainage system. All of these preventative measures are reasonably easy, inexpensive tasks that can be done by most homeowners.

Let us start with proper grading. Proper grading is absolutely imperative. The purpose of grading is to make it so that the soil surrounding the home is draining water away from the foundation. This is a preventative measure against water seeping into the foundation and causing water damage. The grade should be enough to keep the water running in the right direction, which is away from your house. For the best results, the grade should be done for a minimum distance of three feet from the foundation.

The next things you need to worry about are your gutters and downspouts. Your gutters are responsible for collecting water that hits your home and carrying that water to your downspouts where it is then discharged into solid drainpipe that carries the water away from the home and into a non-erosive material or a municipal storm drain system. These components are all essential for a properly functioning watershed system.

Check first to see if your home currently has gutters and downspouts. If it doesn’t, I would highly recommended purchasing them and installing them immediately. If your home does have gutters and downspouts, check to see what condition they are in. If you notice that they are leaking or clogged with debris, clean and repair them. All you will need to clean and repair them with is a garden hose with a high-pressure spout along with a high-quality caulking compound.

Another means of managing water is to reduce the amount of irrigation near the foundation of your home. You can do this by minimizing vegetation that is close to foundation walls. Any and all vegetation that remains should be watered with drip irrigation rather than sprinklers that shed water over a vast area.

A footing drainage system (French drain) is another option for protecting your home against water damage. It is responsible for collecting subsurface water and relieving hydrostatic pressure. This system consists of a perforated pipe surrounded by a belt of gravel. It is located at the base of the footing at the perimeter of the house. Occasionally the drainage system will need to be flushed with a garden hose to remove silt and clogs. Keep in mind, installing a French drain is a project best left to a professional.

Drainage Systems

A footing drainage system can prevent a lot of harm to the foundation of your home. One of the ways in which is does so is by relieving hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostatic pressure results from groundwater pressing against foundation walls. This pressure can be so powerful that it may pop out the joint mortar between concrete blocks or between the walls and the floor. This will lead to serious problems.

The elements mentioned above are crucial to preventing water from reaching your foundation, but what will protect your home from water that does make it? This is where a sound waterproof membrane comes into play. This membrane is located at the exterior of the basement walls and floor. It is typically applied to the exterior surface of the basement walls during construction. There are various waterproofing materials used in this process which include a built-up asphalt system, single play membranes and other impervious systems.

During construction, a sound proof membrane is typically put into place. The best time to do this is prior to backfilling the area surrounding the basement with soil. The membrane can be protected from potential damage by using rigid foam, landscape fabric or a combination of the two.

Most waterproofing is done from the exterior of a wall, but this leads to problems when it is impossible to install a waterproof membrane to the exterior. For example, if the backfilling has already been done then waterproofing the exterior walls is not possible, nor practical. Fortunately, there are some after-market applications that can be used to combat damp or wet walls. One such method, XYPEX Concrete Waterproofing by Crystallization, has been used primarily for industrial and commercial applications, but is becoming popular for residential use as well. The combination of Portland cement, very fine treated silica and various active chemicals help the concrete become permanently sealed against the penetration of water or liquids from any direction.
