“Don’t Waste Your Time Selecting the Wrong Contractor!”
Why do people choose to make basement renovations and how do I find a good contractor?
There are all kinds of reasons for choosing to make basement renovations to your home. Maybe you’re a stressed-out dad looking to build a man cave to take a break from the wife and kids. You could be looking to add value to the most important asset in your investment portfolio. Another reason people decide to hire a basement renovation contractor is because the family is growing and you are running out of space. Toronto is good city for basements as it is a wise use of space in a crowded metro area, and the ground is hard with little shifting, so foundations tend to stay in place. Other reasons include:
Rental Income – Adding onto your home through a basement renovation contractor like The Reno Pros can be a great idea for supplementing your income if you are not in need of the space. Hiring a reputable contractor to create a separate living area can net you upwards of $1000 a month in rental income.
Adding value – In urban areas space is always at a premium and square footage is highly coveted. When you bring in a renovation company to finish your basement, the space will then be climate-controlled and properly lit for use. Those key touches will make the basement part of the home’s useable square footage which will greatly increase the value.
Updating the space for greater usage – A basement that is unfinished can look and feel like the perfect black hole for seasonal decorations, older furniture and a various assortment of miscellaneous items. You don’t spend much time there so no need to keep it up to date. Hiring a basement renovation company like The Reno Pros can change all that by giving you a space that warrants your attention and is a cozy extra living room for a quiet getaway.
Entertaining – As the priorities in your life change, you may find that you and your spouse are homebodies that enjoy hosting. There is no better space to isolate the baggage of a friendly get together than in a newly remodeled basement. A renovation contractor can come in and setup a wet bar, televisions, basically whatever you like in the way of home furnishings to ensure your family and friends have a blast.
In order to find the right contractor you will need to decide what the primary use for you basement will be. Are you a hunter that does his own taxidermy? Someone with a hobby such as this will probably want special areas for containing his/her mess. This would be the same situation for crafts like sculpting, painting or wood working. There are contractors that specialize in this sort of arrangement, just like certain contractors are real pros at designing man caves or party spaces. Whatever design you decide on, it is important to check the contractor’s portfolio of completed projects. A good contractor will be proud to show them to you. You might also ask how many projects he is currently working on, because he can only spread himself so thin, which means there may be times when your project has to wait.
Overall a good judge of character will go a long way in finding the right contractor. A basement renovation contractor like The Reno Pros will be prepared with different plans to show you and should be able to provide you with a detailed estimate and completion date.
