For homeowners looking to open up additional living space but lack the space to do external extensions, a basement is often the only viable option to do so. With Ontario-based specialists BasementBro, it is possible to turn redundant or little-used basement spaces into eye-opening apartments or additional living space.
The newly-opened space provides the ideal environment either for additional family living space, or for creating a more private accommodation. The latter option can be a perfect choice for providing accommodation for an elderly parent, or for older children that still live at home. Alternatively, BasementBro’s customers have used additional space to provide private accommodation for friends and family that visit, or for customers to rent out permanently or temporarily to provide additional income.
Other ways of using this additional space include opening up the space that was formerly the basement to produce a new living area or a kitchen/diner. It can also create one large or two smaller additional bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms.
If planned carefully, basement space can actually create up to 50% additional usable surface area in the average home. Opening up this kind of area can be game changing for many family homes, particularly those in urban areas where space to expand externally is extremely limited.
This not only adds a new dimension to a property, but can also drastically increase its resale value when it is time to move on. It also adds intriguing possibilities for buy-to-let landlords, and if done correctly it could double rental yields from a single property.
Access to the new area can also be tailored by BasementBro according to the customer’s exact requirements. This can be provided from an existing stairwell within the property to enable access when the new section has no guests occupying it. Alternatively, when the new space is not occupied, it can be used to create room for luxuries such as a home office, gym area, kids’ playroom, or relaxation room. The lost storage space from the basement can also be replaced by smaller storage rooms with efficient racks and shelving to suit the space available.
For an even more private experience with the new space, a completely separate access point can also be created exclusive to the main property. This is dependent on the customers’ requirements and the external space available.
BasementBro’s expertise and experience also enables them to assess the underlying structure of basements prior to commencing any construction work. This enables diagnosis and fixing of problems that could become more serious if left untreated such as cracking in walls or the floor, weak foundations, leaks, damp or mold problems, or insufficient insulation. Any required repairs are carried out before the basement conversion commences to ensure the best possible finish to customers’ new space.
