How to Prepare For a Basement Development

You want to finish your basement, great! Where do you start? There are things to think about before contacting a renovation company and starting the project. 

Here’s how to prepare for a basement development

Plan Ahead 

Just like with any home renovations in Calgary, it pays to plan ahead for basement development. One of the first and most important things to think about is what you want to use the space for. Do you want a home office? A guest bedroom? A play area? The design of the space depends a lot on its intended function, so having a plan in place helps you make a number of decisions later.

Examine the Potential for Basement Flooding

Basements are prone to flooding, and you certainly don’t want your newly renovated space ruined by water damage. Inspect the area for potential flooding hazards such as cracks in the foundation, old plumbing, and poor landscaping. Ask the Calgary renovation company to consider flooding hazards when they come to provide a quote.

Obtain the Necessary Permits for Home Renovations

Home renovations in Calgary often require permits. Most basement developments only require a building permit, but it depends on the extent of the work. Your renovation company can help you determine which permits are necessary for the project; they may even obtain the permits on your behalf. Whoever gets the permits, though, make sure you have them before any work begins.

Get Ready Financially for Basement Development

Basement development in Calgary is a big project that takes time and money. Develop a realistic budget for your renovations, and choose a renovation company that will work with your budget so you don’t have to put the project on hold.

Start preparing for your basement development with these tips. The right groundwork can help make the whole project a little easier.
