A homeowner might want to extend their home by adding an additional room or remodelling an old basement to add more living space. A growing family makes the need for extra space essential. There are many advantages of adding a Home Addition, such as making the basement area into a separate apartment. Several larger homes are turning their unfinished basements into nanny suites before they have children so that they can hire a live-in nanny. Besides the basement, a homeowner might want to Create an Extra Bedroom or guest room, game or library room, or an extra bathroom and even another kitchen. Whatever the reason for creating a more liveable space out of an unused basement or extra room in the house, the new addition can certainly add resale value to your existing home. Additions such as a furnished basement can add thousands of dollars to the resale value of your home alone.

Almost 95 percent of Canadian homes have basements, which are typically used for recreational rooms, home theatre rooms or perhaps turned into separate apartments and rented out for extra income. In a typical single-family home in Canada, this part of the house will take up approximately 25 to 35 percent of lower-level floor space. Therefore basement renovations in Toronto are a very important process, and can be problematic if done by unprofessional or unexperienced companies. The Canadian housing industry is constantly looking to improve basement interiors through innovative technologies, construction practices, systems, and materials. People are fed up with the dark, damp basements where storage becomes mouldy and extra living space is wasted. Luckily, new approaches are changing all that. A basement that is built with these new renovation methods can greatly increase a home’s value and create an enjoyable, healthy, living space.

Remodelling to bring the plumbing and wiring up to current codes is a good idea not only because of the codes but for the safety of the occupants. Another type of remodelling job consists of making a Home Handicap and Barrier Free Accessible. This is done by building a ramp leading into the house. A ‘ride-along-chair’ can also be added inside for the stairs or perhaps a small elevator to help a wheelchair-bound individual up to the second floor.
A nice, organized and functional home is important to many people, and can greatly affect the quality and enjoyment of life. This is especially true for busy parents who work, and have to get dinner on the table before taking the kids to ballet or hockey practice, or before running to a business meeting or an evening on the town. This is where a kitchen improvement comes in. Renovating your kitchen can update and recharge a tired, old room into a family gathering place where not only easy food preparation and good meals happen, but families are brought together over the kitchen table for discussions, game night or homework help.
There are several things to consider and keep in mind when undertaking a kitchen rebuilding project, even if a homeowner is hiring a professional company to do the work – which is the first recommendation. Do not try to attempt to renovate a kitchen unless you have a strong background in construction. It is best to leave this type of home improvement to a licensed renovator.
In order to create a liveable basement where there is currently a low ceiling we can perform underpinning. This is done by excavating the ground, in alternating sections around the basement, and then reinforcing it with concrete shutters and poured concrete under the exposed and existing foundation. This is done along each wall of the basement. We will make sure the structural supports are intact and not tampered with so that the house will be structurally sound throughout the process and when the procedure is complete. Some homeowners like a separate entrance to the basement and this feature can be added once the basement is securely fit and the new concrete has had time to cure. We would then use a backhoe to cut into the concrete wall, after the surrounding wall has been secured. A doorway would be framed with supports and braces and the homeowner would also be able to choose the doorway of their choice as long as it fits in the opening —some homeowners prefer to match the front door and the basement door. Braces and supports would hold the new door into place. Before you know it, you too could be enjoying a finished basement with a beautiful walk-out.

Did you know that as of Sept. 09, 2010, it became illegal to import or manufacture any architectural coating containing volatile organic compounds or ‘VOC’s?.
This is a directive from the Canadian Environmental Protection Act – Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Concentration Limits for Architectural Coatings. It successfully prohibited 31 of the hundreds of products used in wood-coating, stain-sealing, glazers and finishes along with wood stains.
It is important to prepare a concrete floor before applying any style of floor covering. This is done by creating a ‘subfloor’ typically made of a plastic and then a moisture-resistant subfloor over that – marine plywood is usually used. Once a subfloor is laid down, any type of floor covering could be secured on top of it asa beautiful foundation to any style room.
What is underneath a floor is almost as important as what is on top of it. There are new advancements that allow a construction company to install quiet systems or what’s known as ‘quite walk systems’ so that when a person walks across a wood floor, no noise is heard.
There are many different types of construction companies: some only renovate and remodel residential dwellings, while others only deal with commercial buildings such as medical offices, business offices, shopping plazas, shopping malls, stand alone or strips of stores, restaurants or educational buildings.
Commercial construction and home renovation Oakville is a booming business because in today’s economy not many businesses are moving locations so they are doing the next best thing — and that is renovating and updating their existing locations.
In the demolition phase, the construction crew will take sledgehammers to the drywall and begin to gut the interior, or just certain walls if depending on the scale of the renovation. Other times a small earth mover would be brought in to bulldoze the entire inside of a building before new construction can begin.
When a home owner of stand-alone home or townhouse wants to renovate his house partly and probably stay in during the construction the safety comes first. Regular activities are carried out in whichever end of the building is not being renovated. For a kitchen, for example, it is harder for construction to take place while family stays in because of food preparation issues. In these situations construction can happen while no one is at home (at work or at school) to hurry the process along and minimize down time. In general home renovation Oakville process may take up to few months and if it encompasses most part of the house it is better for the family to move out for the period of construction.
