Here at Kanata Home Renovation Pros, we’re dedicated to your satisfaction and strive to ensure you receive nothing short of quality work, even for your basement.
Basements can be challenging to finish or renovate because they often aren’t built to the same capacity as the rest of your home. They require more installations to make the space livable and comfortable, as well as safe. We can help you modernize your basement and bring it up to speed with the rest of your home.
Finishing a Basement
To finish a basement means to complete it to the same standard as the rest of your home. If your basement is currently building panels, loose light fixtures, and concrete flooring, it's likely unfinished and requires some maintenance before it's deemed livable. We can assist in installing new floorings, such as carpet, hardwood, or vinyl, as well as installing new walls and ceilings.
We can set up proper light fixtures and wiring, as well as insulation, which your basement probably lacks. Finishing a basement makes the space welcoming and comfortable, as any other room in your home would be. When a basement is not finished, it's not considered safe to hang out in or sleep in because it doesn't have the livable features required to deem it finished.
Restoring a Basement
Restoring a basement is usually what’s needed if your basement is old, hasn’t been finished properly, or is finished but has since succumbed to water damage. When our services are needed to restore a basement, we’ll attempt to remove any water-damaged drywall and flooring, as well as clear any mold and residue that’s been left behind. Leaving a deteriorating basement can eventually cause mold and mildew to spread to other areas of your home, and even attract unwanted pests as well.
Waterproofing a Basement
Waterproofing a basement is incredibly vital to the longevity of your basement, simply because of the basement’s location. Basements are situated at the bottom of your home and, therefore, more susceptible to potential water damage and flooding.
To avoid this from happening, it’s important to take steps to waterproof your basement and prevent water from seeping in or causing more expensive damages. When water does seep in, it can leave behind stains, mold, and mildew, as well as devalue your home entirely.
Our waterproofing techniques include installing drains, sealing the windows and doors, and adding waterproof materials to the flooring.
By finishing or renovating your basement, you can also add significant value to your home as a whole. If you plan on selling it in the future, you can entice potential buyers with your finished basement, as they might see it as more interior space where the kids can play, they can install a home theater, or they can entertain guests.
A finished basement doesn’t add to the square footage of a home, but it offers more value than you had before and will make sure your home stands out on the market.
