One question that may come to mind for homeowners considering a basement renovation is will a finished basement add value to the house and property and if so, how much?

A basement renovation allows you to make your space exactly how you like it while adding additional living area to your home. Usability is one of the main reasons many Edmonton homeowners choose to renovate their basement into a more functional space.

No matter what your reasons are for renovating your basement, whether it’s adding a bedroom for a growing family; or if you need a separate space for guests to stay during their visit, thinking about the functionality of the area is very important.
