Check for moisture and mold. Dampness will not only make your basement colder, but it will also lower the temperature in the rest of your house.

If there are cracks in your foundation, even if they have used caulking to repair them, your home is still at risk. Caulking does not protect the outside of your foundation, so water can still be seeping through causing structural damage.
SETTLING FOUNDATION: cracks may be caused by a settling foundation, which means that your foundation is slightly moving around the soil. If this is the case, you will definitely need an experienced contractor to fix the problem.
DRAINAGE PROBLEMS: horizontal cracks are usually caused by water filtering from the downspouts which are too close to the walls of your basement. This causes the water to seep through your foundation, which freezes in the winter and causes foundation cracks.
BOWED FOUNDATION WALLS: your foundation walls may have been subject too much pressure or weight, they may have become to cave in. You should get this fixed by a licensed contractor to avoid further problems.
Make sure that any existing water damage is repaired and your basement is properly dried out before you begin any renovations.
Have your floor and rim joists, the sill plate, and wood-framed windows checked for rot and insect damage. Insects can be eating away inside the wood and not be seen by the naked eye.

After out basement got flooded, my husband and I decide to completely overhaul the space. A friend recommend Lucas Richard Design, so we gave them a call. After talking to the designer for an hour we knew they were the company for us. Lucas Marzetti himself supervised the entire renovation process. We could't be happier. The crew was clean, professional, and even stayed under the proposed budget. If you need any work done on your house I can't recommend Lucas Richard Design enough, they're total pros.
