What to Consider Before Your Basement Renovation?

Basement renovations for Calgary homes involve more than just changing the look of a particular space. There are many things to consider before you attempt to finish your basement, including:

  • Building codes – Pay attention to the building codes that dictate how best to layout a basement. For example, if you are turning your basement into a bedroom, you will need to install a large enough window to enter and exit in case of an emergency. 

  • Water drainage – Repair any water problems before finishing your basement. Additionally, make sure your basement has proper drainage, especially if you install bathrooms, kitchenettes, or other features that use water. 

  • Height – Sometimes, an unfinished basement has low ceilings or low-hanging ductwork that will cause issues if you plan on making the space more habitable. You will either have to relocate the ductwork or dig down into the floor to increase the distance between it and the ceiling. 

  • Future projects – The basement often houses many of the home’s mechanical systems, so it’s important to keep future projects in mind. Make sure you don’t have to remove and replace the work you’ve already done to your finished basement in order to get to electrical circuits or supply lines.


Why Should You Develop a Basement?


Do you have an unfinished basement? Here are some reasons why you should develop and finish your basement:

  • Enhances the value of your property

  • Adds a liveable space to your home that you can design

  • Expand the square footage of your home
