About Us

I’m Chris Wakoko, owner and founder of Basementist. I’m a Certified Kitchen and Bath Remodeler (CKBR) and a graduate of the DIY Training Center. I also have a finance degree from the University of California. I also have a passion for fish and insect farming.

I have worked around the house (roofing, basements, flooring, bathrooms, toilets) on various DIY projects and with professionals like myself for over 15 years. I have gained knowledge and skills, which I share through my various blogs, Basementist being one of them.

In this blog, I share what I’ve learned through my experience and interaction with contractors, lawyers, and other parties concerning our basements. Here, you learn about basement construction, maintenance, and the laws that govern this part of our home.

My blogs have helped over 800,000 people solve the most common problems they face around the house, giving me the utmost joy.

Thank you for being part of my team.
