We receive many questions from homeowners regarding Basement Development, Secondary Suite & Home Improvement projects.. We have listed the common ones below & should you have other questions not mentioned, feel free to Contact Us & we would be happy to help.
Can you obtain the required City of Calgary Permits?
Yes.. We find the easiest & most efficient way is if we take care of all the building & trades permits. Each trade required(Electrical, Plumbing, HVAC, Gas) will need their respective permits & all our trades partners are licensed & can obtain the required permits from the City of Calgary.
How long does an average Basement Development project take?
An average 1 bed, 1 bath basement takes roughly 6 weeks to complete.
How long does a Secondary Suite project take to complete?
An average Secondary Suite takes roughly 8 weeks to complete.
Do you complete all the work yourself?
In most cases the answer is yes.. We complete all the construction aspects of each project.(framing, drywall, flooring, painting, trim, doors etc). There are some exceptions such as stone countertops, which require specialty equipment and we have an expert installer that we use for all of our countertop projects. The other exceptions are the required trades for each project. Only Electrical can work on Electrical & pull their permit.. Only Plumbing can work on Plumbing & pull their permit, Only HVAC can work on HVAC & pull their permit etc. We have a network of all required trades needed for any project.
Can you help with layout ideas & material suggestions?
Yes.. After viewing a project we can offer our advice & work together with homeowners to find the best layout. Usually the location of plumbing rough-ins & bedroom windows dictate the most sensible options for any layout. We can offer suggestions on material vendors from our experience & we know of a few different places to find lighting, tile. flooring etc.
Are you Licensed & Insured?
We are absolutely licensed & insured with the City of Calgary & province of Alberta & can obtain all required permits for any project.
Do you charge for quotes or initial visits?
We always offer complimentary quotes & can offer our advice on any project at no-charge.
