A home with a fully finished basement is something most homeowners dream of. In reality, for those who do have basements, it’s rare they come fully finished. While a complete basement renovation can be costly, it’s more than worth it in the long run. Not only does it double your useable living space, it also has a 70% return on investment (ROI). With all these benefits, it’s no wonder a basement renovation is at the top of many homeowners’ wish lists.
Auroosa and Aman had this project on their wish list and, with the help of York General Contractor, they were able to make their dream of a bright and beautiful basement a reality. The first step towards making this renovation happen was finding the right company for the job. Auroosa and Arman were well aware that finding a trustworthy company was essential.
“You hear horror stories of contractors coming in, leaving your project half finished and vanishing with your money or taking forever to finish but this was not the case with Ronnie and his team. They finished the project on time based on what we agreed on.”
Auroosa and Aman connected with York General Contractor to help them create more livable space in their home. They also wanted to move the laundry machines into a designated laundry area, which would include counter space and laundry sink.
The biggest complaint about basements is how dark they can be. Stuck underground with little to no natural light, basements need all the help they can get when it comes to light. Experienced basement pros know there are a couple of tricks you can use to make your basement brighter, and York General Contractor did exactly that.
The addition of fresh drywall painted in a bright white colour certainly helped brighten up this once dingy basement. Light walls combined with the light grey flooring used throughout help to reflect light shining from pot lights, making this basement seem even bigger than it was before. By keeping their colour palate similar throughout the basement, they were able to achieve a beautiful and bright space that can be used for anything from a family room to a home gym.
When it comes to finding the right company for your basement renovation, you want to make sure it’s a company that you can easily communicate with and feel comfortable giving feedback to. If an aspect of the project is taking more time than estimated, it’s important the company lets you know and adjusts the timeline accordingly. Luckily Auroosa and Aman had no such issues as project manager Ronnie was very responsive to their needs. York General Contractor was able to complete their project on time and even helped out with an additional job that wasn’t on their project scope!
This goes to show that finding the right company for your project makes all the difference. If you’re planning on renovating your basement, make sure you reach out to multiple companies. You should do this not only to compare quotes but to get a better feel for each company. You want to hire someone you feel comfortable communicating with. If you do not feel comfortable with the company during the quoting phase, odds are things will not improve during the project.
