The idea of a basement renovation has been on your mind for some time. The idea behind the renovation may involve all sorts of strategies. Perhaps your plan is to add more living space to the home. Maybe the point behind the basement remodelling is to create a studio apartment that could be used to generate additional income each month. Whatever the plan, you can bet that the team from Penguin Basements can help you convert the space into whatever you like.
How will we do this? First, one of our top contractors at Penguin will visit the home and take a close look at the basement. Since basements can vary greatly in terms of condition and current features, this inspection is essential.
Next, we’ll sit down with you and talk about what you want to do with the space. What will it be? Are you wanting to make the space into a play room for the kids or for the entire family? If you have live-in child care, maybe the idea is to make a suite that’s perfect for the nanny. Does the idea of creating your own home theater sound appealing? Once we know what you have in mind, we can begin drafting a renovation plan that’s a perfect fit.
The issue of money is also included in that visit. While a firm estimate will be difficult to come up with until after we draft the plan for your consideration, our basement contractors will want to know how much you’re prepared to spend. As we create the layout and the general planning for the renovation, we’ll keep that figure in mind.
Typically, one of our basement contractors will create at least two floor plans for your consideration. Both will take into account any details you’ve mentioned as well as the budget that you have in mind. Feel free to select one of the plans, or we can incorporate some of the ideas found in both plans into a third option. After you make the final selection, we’ll prepare a quote that includes all the features and elements associated with your chosen plan.
Here’s something that’s a little different about the way Penguin does business. We don’t get upset if you want to take the quote and compare it to what another basement company will do. In fact, we encourage customers to do just that. We have every confidence that you’ll find out planning and pricing to be more detailed, more precise, and ultimately free of any unpleasant surprises in the middle of the project.
Why are we so sure that Penguin is the right basement contractor for you? Annually, we take on between 300 and 500 basement renovations. We know what to look for, how to correct all sorts of structural issues, and what it takes to come up with a result that our clients love.
As part of our planning, we address all sorts of details. That includes helping you with securing the right permits, creating a plan for any plumbing or wiring upgrades that may be needed, and foundation repair. We also take on important tasks like basement waterproofing, mold removal and remediation, and crawl space encapsulation.
Without a doubt, finished basements add quite a bit to the home. It’s not just about the space. A basement renovation can make it easier to heat and cool the home, increase the market value, and in general make the home more functional.
