What to do before you start?

Before you start the renovation process, take some time to clean the space and ensure your basement doesn’t have any leaks. When working with Innovation Reno, we’ll be able to perform a moisture test for you. This is an important step to assess whether or not you’ll need additional water proofing. The last thing we want is for your new basement renovation to be ruined by sneaky leaks.

Once we have completed these initial tests, we’re ready to secure any necessary work permits. Depending on the scope of the job, we will be required apply for the required building permits before we start working on your basement.

Based on our in home inspection, we will be able to inform and help you in the application process. We have years of experience working in Ontario and we will be able to guide you through understanding the local building codes. Once we have applied for your permits and your basement meets the building codes, we’re ready to begin the renovation.

There are an infinite amount of basement ideas to explore. The best approach would be to start with what you need most. Take a step back and analyze your reason you would like to renovate. Whether you plan to add a rental unit, increase the value of your home, or create a play room for the kids, that decision will influence your choice of design layout and materials.

When working with InnovationReno, we’ll be able to guide you through the design process. Starting with your objective, we will design a layout that suits your needs and follows local building codes. It is important to keep in mind that your basement will need to have fire exits and windows in the bedroom to ensure safety.

After we come up with the layout of your basement, we can begin the fun part of choosing materials such as flooring, fixtures, paint and finishes. This process is made easy with our collection of samples. You’ll be able to pair your favourite materials together to create a design feeling that resonates with you.

Basement finishing process

You have selected your materials and you’re feeling excited about the design of your new basement. Now is the time for our team at Innovation Reno to begin the transformation.

1.
Install installation
While there are many types of insulation options available, one of the most efficient ways to insulate your basement’s exterior walls is to use polystyrene foam. We will measure the space and cut your installation into appropriate sizes.

Once the walls are completely covered, we’ll fill the gaps between the frames, ceiling and floor to ensure you are toasty warm in your basement.
2.
Frame your walls
If you plan on having separate rooms, perhaps a laundry room or bedroom, the next step will be to frame the walls.

Framing the walls is a method used to create the structure of the divided rooms. This is done by building out the skeleton of the walls using 2 by 4s following the design layout.

This step is best performed by professionals as it requires specific measurements, cutting and placement.

When working with Innovation Reno, you’ll be able to relax knowing that we are experienced and pay great attention to detail.
3.
Electrical Work
Now that the frame of your walls are in place, we’ll begin the electrical work that goes behind the walls.

During this phase, we will be able to add additional lighting, electrical outlets, and ensure that your breaker system is sufficient for your needs.

Whether you want to turn your basement into a recreation room or a rental property, each project will require a thoughtful electrical layout.

During our design consultation, we will discuss the options when it comes to the placement of switches, lighting fixtures and outlets.
4.
Plumbing
If your basement renovation requires the addition of a bathroom or kitchen, the next step in our process will involve extending plumbing and wire lines.

To reduce the workload and necessary permits, it is best to position your kitchen and bathroom close to existing utilities. When it comes to plumbing, there are many technical aspects to consider such as drainage and backwater valves.

Here at InnovationReno, we work with a trusted team that has experience in plumbing for basement renovations.

Convert your basement into a rental apartment

As the range for kitchen renovations varies from project to project, the best way to give you an accurate quote is to have an in-home inspection.

Our team will come to your home and assess the space. We will discuss what features you would like to have in your kitchen and help you choose the items that best suit you financially.

The benefits of working with our full-service team is that we are able to work within your needs at every stage of the renovation. You will not need to manage and inform separate teams on your designs. We will be there every step of the way to ensure your new kitchen renovation is complete on time and meets your expectations.

How long should a basement renovation take?

The amount that is reasonable to spend on your kitchen renovation depends on your purpose to renovate.

If you plan to increase the value of your home for resale, only spend as much you suspect will be made back when it is time to sell.

On the other hand, if you’re remodelling for a more functional or eye-catching space, decide what fits comfortably within your current financial situation. This answer will be different for everyone. It’s important to understand your objective and make a decision based on what your desired outcome is.

At the end of the day, your new renovation isn’t going to feel good if the cost is beyond what is reasonable for you. That’s why at InnovationReno, our experience and guidance will help you design a beautiful and functional kitchen that is kind of your wallet.

How much should a basement renovation cost?

We’ve all seen the 24 hours extreme makeovers on TV. As efficient as this would be, real-life renovations can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.

The length of any renovation depends on the scope of the project, the specific requirements of the space, and the availability of products and materials.

As a general idea, the length of time under construction can be 6-8 weeks for a straightforward and average kitchen. For a more elaborate or larger kitchen, the project can last up to 3 months. This can vary greatly and is dependant on many factors.

To get an idea of what to expect for your own kitchen project, give us a call for a free consultation and we’ll be happy to take a look at your space.

We contacted Carlos Pena to examine a leakage on our roof. He was very thorough in isolating the problem, including inspecting the entire roof and the attic and installed an effective short term repair, giving us time to evaluate various options. Carlos Pena's work was efficient and effective and he conducted himself in a professional and ethical manner at all times. I would not hesitate to use his services again and certainly would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
