Home Renovations FAQs
- Q: If I am looking to renovate my home, how much will I be spending?
This is a very common question, but it is hard to give an answer without first knowing the scale of your project. For a rough estimation, get in contact with us. We would be happy to discuss this with you. Typically, we ask that our clients to fill out the "Request a Quote" form that can be found on our website. Once you have completed this form with the details of your vision, we can give you an estimated quote, and the process will have started in an accurate and professional way.
- Q: Is it advisable to move out and live elsewhere during a renovation?
Considering the scale of the renovations we typically perform, it is advisable that you live elsewhere. Living in a home that is undergoing massive renovations is not safe or conducive to creating a productive work environment. If your renovation is a more minor one, like a spare room, or a bathroom in a house that has several toilets and showers, then staying is totally fine, but may still feel like an inconvenience or annoyance. If your situation involves pets and/or children, we recommend vacating the premises during the renovation procedure, as this activity can be very stressful for them.
- Q: Are some seasons or months better than others to have a renovation completed?
No, this is a myth. We complete projects with great success through the entire year. Toronto has always been busy and bustling with construction and renovation projects during every month of the year. Regardless it's best to schedule your project at least 3 months before you would like the renovation to begin.
- Q: Do you provide assistance in obtaining the permits required for an addition?
Yes, we will help you with this process.
- Q: I want renovations for my home. Where do I start?
The first step is finding a trusted contractor; someone who you are not only willing to work with, but excited to engage in a long time project of huge personal importance with. Finding the right contractor for you is not a step to fast track. Take your time, do a lot of research, and ask friends and family if they know anybody who they feel comfortable referring. If you find a contractor you like, ask to see their portfolio, and consider contacting previous people who have worked with the contractor. Ask the contractor for their credentials and ensure they are licensed and ensured. Again, make sure that, on an individual level, this is a person that you trust and like. This is a major commitment and it is worth waiting for a person who you have no reason to doubt. This contractor should be as invested in the success of your project as you are. To address this side of the development of the project, we will supply you with free consultation with our team of experienced professionals. We care about the growth and healthy development of the project, and will continue to take all the required steps to ensure that you are comfortable every step of the way. After the project is complete, our five year warranty ensures that we are still available to address any concerns or questions you may have down the line!
