When we bought this house 9 years ago, we were told that the basement has been waterproofed. The basement is unfinished. We are wanting to finish the basement, but here is the problem:
The basement has a sump pump system, the flooring around the exterior walls that looks as if it has been dug up and re-cemented. There is a 4" high plastic coated baseboard trim around the exterior walls edges that has been rivoted to the walls. What is that for, and can we remove it to finish the walls????
It is unsightly, and we cannot just plaster over the cement blocks and leave that at the bottom. We wanted to plaster and create a "tuscan feel" to the walls, but that plastic coated baseboard trim has us stumped. If we leave it, how do we finish the walls?
