Calgary Basement Development: Why Budgeting Matters

PictureSurprise, surprise! Budgeting matters. I bet you didn’t know that, did you?

(We’re not being serious.)

About you knowing, of course. Budgeting still matters.

It especially becomes important when you decide to take on the job of remodeling your basement. Because let’s be honest — it’s not a cheap (or easy) task. It tends to be a rather lengthy and costly one. Making a budget (and sticking to it) soon becomes your greatest asset.

But it’s not all: Learning how to save money should also figure high on your list of priorities. As should knowing what to buy used and where to buy these things from.

Here are 3 tips to help you along your journey:

  1. Overestimate costs. This way, you’ll end up with more money rather than less, and you’ll be certain never to go over your budget.
  2. Buy used materials and (maybe) furniture. This is a good way for you to save you money. Don’t forget that buying in bulk is cheaper too!
  3. Hire a basement development company. Lastly, this is not a tip to save you money in the short run, but maybe in the long run if things go wrong. Unless you are 100% certain that you can take on the job of remodeling your basement by yourself, sometimes it’s best to rely on professionals to do it instead. And for budget-minded people like you, you’re in luck as well because many companies like PLANit Builders offer financing options to ease the strain on your wallet.

Good luck and have fun!

Calgary Basement Development: How Long Does It Take?

sofa-1233675In recent years, Calgary basement development companies have become more and more common in the city. This is because people are starting to realize that basements don’t have to be basements. They don’t have to be cold or moldy, and they don’t have to serve as storage rooms that remain basically unused for decades. Basements can be anything.

If the prospect of turning your basement into your own personal in-home gym, an office or a simple guest bedroom piques your interest, then we welcome you into the wonderful world of Calgary basement remodeling.

As a company specializing in that, one of the most common questions that people ask us on a regular basis is this one: How long does it take?

Unfortunately, there is no “one-size-fits-all” answer to that question because each case is different. How long it takes to remodel your basement can vary wildly from how long it takes to remodel your neighbor’s basement. The size of the actual basement, the schedule of the owners, how much electrical work is required and of course what they are planning on turning their basement into all play a role in how long it will take for companies like us to finish a job.

Generally speaking, however, expect a complete basement remodeling job to take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. To speed up the process, be sure to be specific and clear on what your expectations are early on. A bit of research never hurts as well. As for your schedule, here at PLANit Builders we are very good at working around schedules, but we will still need your full cooperation to complete your basement. Try to pick a period of the year in which you will be able to accommodate us at least twice a week.

Good luck!

Why You Should Hire a Calgary Basement Development Company?

PictureWhat do you think of when you think of basement development?

For some people, basement development is synonym with the basement of their dreams.

However, some of these people do not know that companies specializing in Calgary basement development exist. As a result, they believe that the only option available is to remodel their basement all by themselves…

…which is never a good idea unless you have years of basement remodeling experience under your belt.

There are three main reasons why you should hire a Calgary basement development company instead of going the DIY way:

  1. It’s safer;
  2. It’s faster;
  3. You will be working with experienced professionals who know what they are doing.

These three reasons are self-explanatory, and quite frankly, they should never be ignored unless (as we stated above) a person has years of experience working in the basement development industry.

Sure, hiring a company tends to be a bit more costly than remodeling your basement by yourself. But trust us when we say that the risks far outweighs the benefits of going the DIY way. If things go wrong, fixing things that weren’t broken before can even prove to be more expensive in the long run than the initial cost of hiring a company. And of course, if your budget is a little tight this year, you can always count of financing options such as the ones offered by PLANit Builders.

As we like to say, if you can dream it, we can built it. And we believe that everyone, regardless of their budget, should be able to afford the basement of their dreams.
