- How Do You Work With Historical Home Basements?
How Much Does A Basement Renovation Cost in Toronto?
The cost of finishing a basement or renovating a basement can vary widely depending on the amount of work needed to be completed. If you are planning on adding a bathroom or kitchen to your basement you can expect a significantly higher price than simply creating a beautiful living room space or a basement bedroom remodel. The square footage of your basement as well as the quality of finishes will also be a large determining factor in the cost of renovating a basement. Typically you can expect somewhere between $30-$45 dollars per square foot in renovation costs. This of course would be impacted by any unknown issues that could be discovered along the way, which is why it is important to also set aside an amount as a contingency when creating your basement renovation budget.
How Can My Basement Space Be Used Effectively?
You might have an idea of what you want your finished basement to look like but depending on the layout of the space there could be issues with where walls, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC end up. A knowledgeable basement contractor near you can help create a plan that works with your desired design but also takes into consideration the technical elements of your basement. The planning phase of any renovation is very important, which is why it’s essential that you work with a company that is experienced in basement finishing.
How Do You Work With Historical Home Basements?
There are a number of gorgeous historical homes all throughout Toronto and the GTA. These homes have a great deal of potential and unused space however renovating a historical home can come with an entirely different set of challenges. Electrical, plumbing, and even the very foundation of the home can all be built with out-of-date elements that will need to be updated once the basement construction starts. A qualified basement renovation contractor can help you assess exactly what the scope of a project like this will look like and also what you can expect with timeline and cost.
