When planning for your renovation it’s important to really consider and plan “What is the purpose of renovating this space?”
During the planning process, we will take all aspects of your initial planning into special consideration. We will also look at natural light, stair restrictions, sub-floor construction, and bathroom placement and bearing walls. We want your basement functional, which requires careful planning beforehand and will decrease your stress during the project.
The number one problem in basements is moisture, which can lead to harmful mold growth. Special consideration needs to be given to any point where moisture can enter, get trapped and encourage mold growth. These points are usually the sub-floor, walls, windows, window wells and bathrooms.
Your contractor will take the necessary steps to stop moisture and prevent future moisture from getting in. Again, this is an important point to talk about with your contractor of choice. It is possible to have a warm dry basement provided you plan accordingly.
Are you on a time crunch? Do you need your basement completed in time for your relatives’ annual visit? Talk to your contractor about it. Contractors often have two or more jobs on the go so that they can be working on another project while one of the other trades is working on your project.
The biggest delays to basement renovations are usually the result of changing plans when construction is already underway. Changing labour methods or materials can result in longer wait times for deliveries or doing one job more than once. Time is money and time (therefore money) can be saved by planning in advance.
