Basement Renovation: Optimize Your Space

A basement renovation in Montreal requires more preparation and a longer checklist. Montreal homes tend to be older, so a complete evaluation of the home’s current state is a must. The renovation can also get expensive as your contractors try to jump through various hoops, such as now-obsolete mechanical systems that don’t adhere to régie du bâtiment du Québec norms, or challenges related to sealing and insulation. That’s why we always recommend hiring an experienced contractor that has the expertise and the know-how to undertake a project of this scope.

Our basement renovation service in Montreal will leave you in surprised delight with what will have been done to your basement. With Espé Réno Urbaine, your project is in good hands.

Here are some of the many options that you can incorporate into your basement:

  • Adding a new bedroom for your growing family, or simply for guests.
  • A playroom
  • A second living room
  • A home theatre
  • A home gym

The main advantage with a basement renovation is that you can transform the space as you wish. Want to receive family and friends for a laid-back night of shooting pool and sipping wine? Have any teens that need their own space? What about aging parents with less autonomy who require a safe place to call home? A basement offers endless possibilities. All it takes is sharing your needs with an experienced designer at Espé Réno Urbaine to make your project happen.


Assess your basement to plan your renovations

Assessing the current state of your basement is a necessary step before commencing a project of this scope. This assessment will allow you, among other things:

  • To avoid any unforeseen complications during the project
  • To quickly address any problems that arise during the basement renovation

  • To ensure the solidity of the basement and your entire house

The basement structure is a crucial element that we take into account in our basement renovation service in Montreal. We familiarize ourselves with every corner of your home to offer you the highest quality renovation service possible.

An assessment is necessary to make sure there are no major cracks that could affect the solidity of your basement and your house.

Plan for a successful basement renovation in your Montreal home

Sound planning of your space is also vital in avoiding costly mistakes. The basement is one of the most common spaces to renovate, but also one that can be unpredictable, especially in the older homes typical of Montreal.  Since the solidity of your home literally rests on the structure of your basement, you need to be extremely cautious as well as innovative to pull off the perfect transformation. That’s why a thorough plan of your basement renovation project is necessary to avoid paying more later.

Several elements need to be considered before undertaking the renovation of your basement in Montreal. Here they are:

  • Type of insulation
