Basement Renovations

Professional basement renovations can supplement your income by creating an excluded rental apartment in your basement! Let Home Renovations People suggest some ideas for basement renovations to help you with your renovations plan


In many homes, the basement represents great, untapped potential for more living space. It may offer the most cost-effective approach to adding a new family room, an extra bedroom or a home office by a proper basement renovations plan. With careful planning and the assistance of our basement renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team, most basements can be turned into attractive, comfortable living space.

 

Energy efficiency and comfort.  Basement renovations offer a great opportunity to increase the energy efficiency of your home. Our basement renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team will inspect your basement and make appropriate recommendations for insulation, caulking and air-sealing that can make your entire home more comfortable.

 

Bring in the light.  Consult with our basement renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team on ways to brighten up your basement before starting your basement renovations plan. Often you can enlarge existing windows or add new ones, depending on the above-ground height of the foundation, what's around the house and the intended use of the new space. Or the basement renovations team may recommend glass blocks - you get the extra light while preserving privacy. Keep in mind that if you are building a bedroom in the basement, the building code specifies a minimum window size for safety reasons. With professional staff & experience of our basement renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team, everything will be done the proper way. 

 

Special construction considerations.  Some basement renovations may be more challenging than others because of supporting posts in the middle of an open area, or floors that are too low for proper connection of bathroom fixtures to municipal sewer lines, for instance. Sometimes it may even be necessary to break open the concrete floor to get at the plumbing. Our basement renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team can identify these challenges and provide suggestions for overcoming them.

 

The heating system.  In undeveloped basements, the heat is often supplied by registers that are set right in the ductwork running along the basement ceiling. Our basement renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team may recommend relocating the heat outlets or registers and adding a cold-air return. This will create the air circulation needed for even heat distribution and a much more pleasant living environment. Air quality. You should pay particular attention to moisture and air quality in the basement. Our basement renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team will conduct a thorough assessment of the area, looking for signs of dampness or mustiness, which may be the result of water entering the basement. It is important to correct all moisture problems before basement renovations start. Our basement renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team may suggest exterior drainage work or re-purging the outside of the foundation wall. If mold is present, it can be eliminated by washing the area with a bleach solution.

 

Proper ventilation will improve indoor air quality.  Our basement renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team recommends a separate exhaust fan or a heat recovery ventilator (a whole house, "fresh air" system). Equipment in the basement such as the furnace and dryer should be vented directly to the outside and may require a separate air intake. In some areas, a dehumidifier may be required during summer months.

 

Sound-proofing.  Planning a family entertainment centre and a bedroom in the basement? Sound-proofing will minimize the noise traveling from one area to another. Our basement renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team may also recommend the installation of an intercom system connected to the upstairs for easy communication between levels.

 

Other things to think about.  There are lots of good ideas and products available that will add extra comfort and value to your basement renovations. Here are just a few suggestions from our basement renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team's experience to get you started: Make sure you set aside enough room for storage space somewhere in the basement. Have the basement renovation team build a simple floor-to-ceiling shelving system in the storage area to maximize space.

 

 

Basement Conversions

Converting your basement into living space is an excellent way to increase living space in your home, which could be achieved by a well planned basement renovations. Even if your basement is not the walk out type, it can be designed with a minimum of time and cost. The basic requirements to convert your basement are that the area must be dry and it must have enough headroom for the average sized adult to stand comfortably. A good rule of thumb is that you should have at least 7 feet of standing space. Our basement renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team suggest that as long as the basement does not permeate excessive moisture into the proposed living space and has adequate headroom converting the basement is a good investment.

 

Some decisions will have to be made during the planning stages of basement renovations.  You must decide if the basement is to be plumbed for a bathroom or restroom. A major cost factor when deciding to plumb up your basement is whether the main drain is below or above your basement. If it's above your basement you will need to pump the waste and sewage out. This can add considerable expense to your basement renovations plan. You may also want to upgrade the electrical service to meet the National Electrical Code. Although the wiring in your house and basement may have been grand fathered in to meet old code specifications, it's a good idea to bring your system up to current code. Safety and convenience are the two predominate reasons for Our basement renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team to suggest upgrading your electrical system.

 

Next, you will need to determine how you want to cool and heat your basement.  If your existing air conditioner is large enough, you can tap into the existing duct and add registers to force cool air in. If you are not installing a return then it's a good idea to plan on installing a dehumidifier too. Our basement renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team's another alternative is to install and independent air conditioner. If you have any above ground exterior wall you could add a window unit through the wall. Baseboard heat provides a good source of dry heat for basements. Again, taping into your existing system is an alternative. You will also want create a floor plan for your basement renovations based on the existing stair stringers. In a nutshell, you'll want to install partition walls, floor covering over the concrete slab and ceilings. If you live in a cold climate you may want to insulate your exterior walls. In warmer climates you can either paint them or add furring strips and install inch to inch drywall. Furring concrete walls with 2 x 4's should allow you enough room to add adequate insulation for colder climates.
 

When creating your floor plan be sure to allow for adequate hall space if you are dividing your basement in to several rooms. A hall of at least 3 feet in width is recommended by our basement renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team. Partition walls must be framed using generally accepted construction techniques. Wall studs should be framed no more than 24 inches on center. However, framing 16 inches on center makes installing drywall easier.

 

Ceilings can be dropped to 8 feet above the floor using suspended ceiling tiles or can dry walled and finished along with the partition walls. Since your basement will have a temperature-controlled atmosphere, you are limited only by your budget in flooring material.
