Calgary Basement Development Financing — Is It For You?

gloved hand

Renovating your basement is not something that happens overnight. In-between finding the perfect Calgary basement development company you also have to try and figure out a budget that you can work around with. Sometimes, however, it’s easier said than done.

But not always.

Money is what makes the world go round. Have you ever heard this expression? Well it turns out that it’s true. Because money is what makes the world go round, it would make sense that people are extra careful when it comes to spending it. Not everyone is ready to spend thousands of dollars on their basement. If they are, good on them! But if they aren’t, or if they can’t, then who said that those people shouldn’t be allowed to enjoy a newly renovated basement anyway?

If you live in the Calgary or Edmonton area and would like to renovate your basement but your finances don’t allow for it at this point, PLANit Builders can help you. We are professional company offering basement development services to residents of Calgary and Edmonton. We believe that everyone, regardless of their budget, should be able to experience the joy of a newly renovated basement… including you.

If you are interested, we encourage you to spend some time reading about our Calgary basement development financing options. You will find that as long as you are employed, own your house and can afford low monthly payments, then you are automatically eligible to apply for one of these options. We are able to approve over 90% of our clients… so why don’t you give it a try?

Is Calgary Basement Development Just a “Trend”?

PictureWhen a person is considering whether developing their basement is worth it or not, there are a few things that they should take into consideration. For some people, thinking of Calgary basement development as only a “trend” seems to be a deal breaker. Let’s take a look at the exact definition of “trend” before going any further.

a general direction in which something is developing or changing.

People seem to think that trends are born only to die a few months (or sometimes) years later without leaving anything behind. This is false. By examining the definition of this word, you quickly come to realize that a trend is the beginning of something new. It leads to changes.

Basement development is not just a trend. It will never die off — it will only continue to develop even further. Why would something as useful as basement development ever cease to exist? People will always want and continue to remodel their basements. Basement development might be popular lately — especially in Calgary — but that doesn’t mean that it won’t continue to be so.

Furthermore, describing basement development as a trend does not take away its usefulness in any away. And if for some reason or another it were to die off in the future, this fact still would not take away its usefulness either.

Do you see what we are trying to say?

Basement development is amazing. It leads to countless opportunities. If you can afford to invest both time and money into your basement, then what exactly is stopping you?

How to Develop Your Calgary Basement Stress-Free


Stress is an inevitable part of life. But while stress can’t always be helped, the truth is that stress is not necessary and that it can be dramatically reduced with good decision-making skills.

If you are considering remodelling your basement in the near future, you might envision yourself stressing over all the little details. This is not surprising — developing your basement is a huge investment, and as such, it is perfectly normal for people to stress while remodelling their basement. After all, anything could go wrong along the way.

But if you are holding off developing your basement because you are scared of stressing, you are doing it wrong.

Here’s the thing — you don’t have to develop your basement by yourself. If you live in the Calgary area, plenty of Calgary basement development companies such as PLANit Builders would be more than happy to take the burden (and stress) off your shoulders.

Certainly, hiring a company might prove to be a bit more expensive than the DIY way, but you will soon find out that the positive sides far outweigh the negative ones. Not only will you have professionals with years of experience under their belts by your side — you’ll also be able to use said experience to your advantage. And if money is an issue for you, you will also find out that stressing about money won’t always be necessary either. If you choose a company carefully, you might be able to receive some financing help from them.

Of course, we are not here to discourage you from remodelling your basement by yourself. If you have the experience (and the money) needed to do it, by all means do so! But if you are looking for a smooth journey free of stress and problems, then hiring a company might be the way to go for you.

How Much Does Developing Your Basement Cost?

PictureSo you want to remodel your basement? Great! As you will soon find out, plenty of companies in the Calgary and Edmonton areas would be more than happy to help you in your endeavours — among them PLANit Builders. As a customer, the burden of sifting between the good and the bad ones falls on your shoulders. But before deciding which company you would like to settle on, there are a few things that you should take into consideration.

Your budget is probably the most important of these things.

How much exactly will developing your basement cost? The truth is that there is no definite answer to that question that plagues the minds of many, many people. There are simply too many factors that can affect the cost of basement development — especially if you are thinking of remodelling it by yourself. (But that’s a completely different story.)

Instead of worrying about that we recommend that you focus on finding a Calgary basement development company that is both affordable and trustworthy. This way you can get a free estimate and begin the planning of your new basement with professionals who have years of planning and building experience under their belts.

If money is an issue, you will also discover that several companies out there offer people like you financing options. If you own your home, are currently employed and can afford low monthly payments, you might want to look into the ones offered by PLANit Builders. We believe that everyone, regardless of their finances, should be able to afford the basement of their dreams — and you are not any different. :-)

Should You Hire a Basement Development Company?


If the idea of developing your basement has caught your attention, there are a few things that you should take into consideration before venturing into the world of basement development. One of these things includes whether or not you are interested in hiring a basement development company.

Don’t get us wrong — renovating your basement by yourself is perfectly doable. Plenty of people have done it and plenty of people do it each year. But before deciding whether or not this path is for you, you have to realize that hiring a company takes a LOT of stress off of your shoulders. Sure, it might be more expensive than renovating your basement by yourself, but you are guaranteed a quality, finished product. (No, we are not insulting your skills! But as we like to say, it’s always better to leave it to professionals.)

Hiring a company also means that you have a whole team of professionals at hand — including designers. You might be good at renovating, but you are bound to run into a problem or two down the road if you don’t know much about design! Further to that, you don’t have to worry about organizing your project. All of this will be taken care of by the company in charge of your basement.

So to answer the original question, we do recommend that you hire a basement development company. Developing your basement is a big investment and it should always be treated as such. But with that being said, there is absolutely nothing wrong with remodelling your basement by yourself. It can be a lot of fun and can even teach you a thing or two! (Just make sure to be safe and to have a few people around.)

Calgary Basement Development — Is It for You?


Basement development might be the latest trend, but it’s not for everyone. If the idea of renovating your basement has piqued your interest then there are a few things that you should consider beforehand. One of these things is, of course, your budget and whether you can afford to hire a company for several weeks, perhaps months on end.

The good news, however, is that some companies do offer financing options to potential customers like you. This is something that you should definitely keep in mind if money is an issue for you or might become an issue some time in the future.

Another thing that you should consider before going ahead and renovating your basement is whether or not you have enough time to invest in the project. While the Calgary basement development company of your choice will be in charge of coming up with the plans and then building the basement of your dreams, you will still have to meet with the architects and the builders several times to ensure that they are all on the correct track. Also remember that hiring a company means welcoming strangers into your house for weeks or months on end. Is this something that you are comfortable with? Only you can decide.

If you decide that yes, basement development is in fact for you, then you most likely won’t be disappointed with the results — especially if you hire a company of the likes of PLANit Builders. Just remember that time and money play an important role in the process so be sure to be prepared both financially and emotionally for the ride ahead of you!

Basement Development Ideas


When it comes to basement development, the sky truly is the limit. People who move away from the long-held idea that basements have to be just that (basements) usually are able to come up with a myriad of different ideas and possibilities. If you have the necessary budget to build the basement of your dreams, just what exactly are you waiting for?

(And even if you don’t, plenty of companies out there offer financing options — so get going already!)

Of course, before doing anything that can’t be undone so easily, it is important that you think carefully about the direction that you would like your basement to take. You can do this by first asking yourself questions such as “What kind of room would benefit me and my family more?” and “What is missing from my home?”. Brainstorming ideas on your own is always a good thing but don’t forget that the Internet abounds with other awesome ideas! Websites like Pinterest are a good place to start from: Pretty cool what people are able to come up with, no?

If you are the kind of person who takes forever to make a decision then you might have a hard time with this decision. :-) Just remember that you are not limited by anything. If you want to build your very own in-home gym, nothing is stopping you. Likewise, plenty of people have turned their basements into nice and cozy offices or even in-home bars.

Does that sound like something you’d like? You decide!

Calgary Basement Development — Can You Afford It?


Basement development has gained popularity in the last few years or so. As we like to say, this is not surprising. Who ever said that basements needed to be just that — basements?!

If you think about it, by not using your basements properly you are wasting a LOT of space. Unfortunately, basement development tends to intimidate people. Once again, this is not surprising. Basements tend to be cold, dark and moldy.

The good news, however, is that basement development does not have to be intimidating. Many companies out there specialize in basement development. If you live in Calgary or in surrounding areas and you are interested in hiring such a company, then you might want to give PLANit Builders a call.

Of course, you will first have to figure out whether you can afford hiring such a company. We are going to be honest with you and tell you that yes, basement development can be expensive. While exactly how much renovating your basement will cost depends on you and on your expectations, you can probably expect to spend a few grands along the way.

The (other) good news, however, is that just because it is expensive does not mean that YOU can’t afford it. PLANit Builders offers Calgary basement development financing options to people like you. We believe that everyone should be able to build the basement of their dreams, regardless of their budget. So if you own your house, are currently employed and can afford low monthly payments, there is most likely no reason for us to not approve you!

What are you waiting for, then? :-)

Basement Development — Do You Need a Permit in Edmonton?


As you probably already know by now, rules and regulations when it comes to renovations cannot be ignored. No matter how troublesome they might be, they are there for a reason — to keep you and your family safe.

If you live in the Edmonton area and are thinking about remodeling your basement, then you may need to first apply for a basement development permit. Likewise, you may need to apply for other permits if the work that you are planning to do involves plumbing, heating, gas and electrical work. For more information, we encourage you to visit the city of Edmonton’s official website.

Discouraged yet? Don’t be. While it might seem like a lot of work (and money), the truth is that it’s extremely worth it… assuming that you know what you are doing.

Once again, we are not trying to discourage you. But here’s the thing: Basement development can be tricky. It requires a lot of skills and experience, two things that certainly cannot be bought. In order to ensure the best possible results, it is always wise to rely on the help of professionals such as PLANit BUILDERS.

We are a professional company dealing in Edmonton basement development. We have years of experience under our belt and it clearly reflects in the way that we deal with projects and customers. If you need us to, we will take your basement to the next level. Regardless of whether you want to build an extra bedroom or your own personal office, if you can dream it, we can build it.

And the good news? We will take care of that pesky building permit so you don’t have to! :-)
