Basement Renovation Process
Bringing together the various aspects of the renovation process seamlessly requires meticulous planning. Since this is such a critical part of the process, our first step is to take the time to sit down with you to get a complete understanding of your vision for your new basement. This enables us to deliver the best results and make your dream a reality.
This next step involves our design team using advanced technology to create a model of your new basement. This allows you to see how your basement will look when completed and provides an opportunity for some details to be tweaked before breaking ground.
Once the design phase is complete and all the necessary permits have been granted, we begin the construction phase. We stick to your specifications and work efficiently to complete your new basement on time and on budget.
The cost to renovate a basement varies on size of your basement, the scope of the renovation project, the materials you choose to use and whether there are any underlying issues that need to be fixed during the construction phase. Though there are some variables that cannot be determined until we have the opportunity to fully assess your property and your vision, our goal is to maintain your costs within $35-$40 per square foot of your basement.
The time it takes to finish a basement depends on a few factors. However, our team works diligently to complete your basement renovation project within 4-8 weeks.
You need a building permit for a basement renovation when you make alterations to the basement’s foundation such as building an additional wall or tearing a wall down. You also need a building permit when you want to renovate your basement into a legal secondary suite only because it must comply with your city’s zoning bylaws.
Most of our basement renovation and finishing projects take up to 3 weeks to complete.
Renovating a basement not only increases its functionality; it also increases your property’s market value significantly. Prospect homebuyers or tenants will appreciate the additional space in a renovated basement, which means you are able to get a great return on your renovation endeavour.
