Benefit From a Basement Renovation

Convert Your Existing Square Footage

Traditionally, older homes came with unfinished basements. As a result, they were subject to being used for storage or laundry rooms. Which turned them into an area in your home where you only went when you needed to. If you’re looking for a way to add more usable square footage to your home without committing to a full home addition, consider a basement renovation!

A basement renovation allows you to expand the living space in your home and you can use it for virtually anything you can imagine! From a recreation room for your kids or a man cave to an in-law or renters suite, Magnolia’s team of designers and contractors are here to help. With our experience as home contractors, we’ll be able to help with everything from the design and planning stage to plumbing, electrical and more. Get in touch with our team today to get started on your dream basement renovation in Ottawa.

Investing in a Basement Renovation

How Much Does It Cost to Finish a Basement?

A finished basement is a great way to add more space to your home without having to add more space. You can actually get up to 70% return on investment and provide your home with more appeal to potential buyers if you ever decide to sell. The cost of a basement renovation can vary greatly depending on the square footage of your basement, the finishes you’re choosing, and the overall complexity of the project.
