Whether you are looking to add a recreation room, a workout room, a sauna or an extra bedroom to your living space, a finished basement can provide you with options that you may not otherwise have in other areas of your home. A finished, improved basement will not only add more enjoyable square footage to your home but it will also boost its resale value. Basements also have the potential to be the most ideal space for your next project. One of the biggest reasons is due to the amount of square footage that you can add to your home as opposed to investing in an addition. Basements are typically already fixed with a floor, walls and a functional plumbing system, making them far less expensive and time-consuming to renovate. Overall, it is easy to transform a basement into a space that fits you and your needs. At Alta Home Garages and More, our qualified staff is experienced with providing some of the best basement renovation services in Calgary. We Build Legal Basement Suites For Calgary Residents Starting in 2015, the Calgary City Council passed a bylaw that enforces rules regarding the construction of a legal basement suite or the legalization of an existing suite. This bylaw states that all basement suites in Calgary must consist of their own sleeping, kitchen and bathroom areas. Legal basement suites in Calgary must also feature shared areas that are accessible, such as a backyard, parking spaces, laundry and storage. At Alta Garages Home and More, we take every measure to ensure that your basement is a legalized suite that meets the requirements under Alberta’s Safety Codes Act. Earning additional passive income by investing in a finished basement suite for rent has never been easier!
