Does your home feature an unfinished basement? Or perhaps yours is in a poor state-of-repair and is due for a basement remodeling?
Now is the time to take back one of the largest spaces in your home and make it work for you. Your basement deserves the same level of attention as any other room in your home and, through a proper basement renovation, can provide a functional living space that increases the storage and utility capabilities of your house. Reclaim your home's basement by creating a games room, man cave, diva den, home theatre room, family room, laundry room, home office, in-law suite or something completely different - the options are endless. Creating an area to spend enjoyable time with family and friends or an area to simply store your stuff begins with a phone call to the Ottawa basement renovation experts at ONEWAY Construction.
Basements can often pose serious issues during renovations, making working with an experienced and trusted contractor extremely important.
Sometimes we see homes that have DIY style "finished" basements, featuring illegal and dangerous plumbing or electrical work, basements that leak, are full of mold or are freezing cold due to improper insulation. Unlike many other home renovations, renovating a basement can be a challenging task because there are many more necessary requirements involved. Our contractors must ensure that the basement is free from leaks and seepage through waterproofing, underpinning and possibly foundation repairs. Choosing a workable layout that incorporates the possibilities of separate rooms, bathrooms and staircases must be considered. On top of that, electrical and plumbing systems that are in compliance with Canadian code are required for safety, legality and piece of mind. Proper sub-flooring and the importance of proper basement insulation to create a usable living space should never be underestimated.
The most common forms of basement renovation include the addition of a large bathroom and a laundry room. These rooms can add a level of usability to your home and increase the sale value drastically. Basement lighting is also a large part of making the space livable and can require more work than just simply purchasing the lights themselves.
ONEWAY Construction can create custom basement designs that allow you to add a large new space to your home and change it's day-to-day livability.
