Start-Up Process

We make developement of your basement comfortable and stress free by laying out the process from the start.

Our transparent approach allows our clients to feel at ease as your basement undergoes development.

Finalize Estimate

After our initial meeting we will formulate a floorplan and quote based on your requirements and return it to you for review.

Final Review

Once the proposal has been accepted we review the entire estimate, drawings and scheduling to make sure all parties are in agreement on the scope of the project and to make any necessary changes before development begins

Project Start & Selections

Once the project begins, communication with the homeowner will be ongoing with project updates. Some selections will be confirmed from the onset while other selections will happen as the basement development progresses.

The Build

Basement Builders has made the basement building process as simple as possible. We have the build divided into three different stages so you know what to expect throughout the project.

Site rules are established, hoarding and home preparations are completed to ensure no damage is done to the home. Permits are pulled. Framing and other materials are delivered.

Construction

Construction begins with framing walk-through and completion, electrical walk-through and completion, plumbing rough-in is completed followed by on-site City inspections. Drywall is hung, walls and ceiling taped, mudded and sanded to a level 4 finish. Ceiling texture applied, windows & doors are cased and hung and baseboard is installed. Trim and casing is sprayed on-site and first coat of paint is applied. Construction phase walk-through is completed.

Final touches

Flooring, tile, lighting, switches and plugs are all installed. Bathroom fixtures and vanity are placed into position. Final coats of paint are applied. City inspections are concluded. Final touch-ups applied, professional clean and homeowner walk-through completes the entire project.

Royal Birkdale Drive

Just because a basement is brand new doesn’t mean it can’t have good-old fashioned character. Our client wanted to steer away from cookie-cutter while bringing texture into play. Distressed beams made from real, reclaimed barn wood define the personality of this upgraded family space. A new bathroom, improved bedroom, comfort elements throughout, topped off with a high-end entertainment centre plus dry bar means the basement is now a favourite part of the house.

Brightoncrest Green

Our client wanted a basement that would inspire energy levels at the opposite end of the spectrum. On one hand, it needed to be a calming destination for a good night’s sleep. On the other, it had to inspire this Calgary family to stick to their fitness goals. We built a space made for multitasking, adding a heat run and potlights to ensure a place of comfort, no matter what the activity.

Brightoncrest Terrace

Our goal for this Calgary home was to put together a fully-equipped basement suite for this client. This meant adding some of our typical features, such as electrical work, a bedroom, and bathroom but also going to the extent to put in an entire kitchen; ultimately, turning this basement into a home within a home.
