Basement Renovation

A

At the beginning of each project, we love to discuss with our clients the possibilities for their basement renovation. We love it when our clients make informed decisions on the key components of the upcoming project. This way they are in control and are guaranteed to love the result. We will cover here most frequently asked questions about the main elements of basement renovation.

Basement Bathroom

Deciding on the location and size of the basement bathroom is very important. This is the first element that goes on the architectural plan of the basement renovation, and it is easy to see why! Unlike other spaces, the basement bathroom must be tied in with the plumbing and sewage system, without affecting the traffic flow of the future space.

Basement bathroom should have an adequate air exchange and ventilation system to prevent mold build-up.

The size and the elements of the bathroom will depend on your ideas for the use of the space.

If you are planning an apartment, or at least a bedroom, it should offer the same convenience as a regular bathroom. For a family room or basement theater, or games room you can add shower to the powder room.

Basement Bedrooms

Whether it is an additional bedroom for your family member or occasional guest bedroom, it is important that they are planned with safety in mind.

Flooring and Tiling For Basement Renovations

The choice of material for flooring when finishing your basement space is very important as it should combine functionality and meet design requirements. As the basement floor is, naturally, the coldest part of the house, the chosen material, in combination with the subflooring should provide the maximum comfort.

The popular choices for basement flooring are:

  • Laminate
  • Vinyl
  • Tile for kitchen, bathroom and entrance areas
  • Engineering hardwood

With any choice, we make sure that the subflooring will provide enough barrier to prevent moisture from building up.

Windows & Doors

Although when planning basement renovations many owners retain the original windows on the basement level, there are some cases when they will have to replace the old ones or install new windows and doors.

If you are planning an apartment, or at least a bedroom, it should offer the same convenience as a regular bathroom. For a family room or basement theater, or games room you can add shower to the powder room.

With most of the basement renovations, one of the essential parts is building outside basement access complete with egress steps. With some layouts, it is impossible to provide an additional egress door, so installing Basement Escape Window as an egress alternative is a viable option.

For a split level basement, the backyard sliding door might be an excellent way not only to offer convenient access, but add more light and open up the view from the basement. In many cases, walkout basement exits will have to be built either through creating an opening in the foundation on the side/backayard of the house, or inside the garage, or adapting the ground level floor plan.
