Basement Developments

Developing Basements Since 1979

We love doing basement developments in Calgary because it’s a chance for us to take a completely blank canvas and shape it into something new, fun, beautiful, and useful! Based on your needs and lifestyle, we can transform the space into an art studio, gym, home theatre, or games area, and ensure that it becomes your favourite room in the house. Unlike other home renovation companies in Calgary, we can even add a lower level to homes that don’t have one or maximize the amount of usable space by changing the layout or removing awkward posts and beams. As with our bathroom and kitchen renovations, we guarantee the type of quality you would expect in a new home build.

What’s Included in a Basement Development
in Calgary?

Basement renovations can vary in complexity, but we aim to deliver beautiful, quality results every time. Whether we’re developing or renovating a previously developed space, we’ll consider everything from the layout and design to the electrical, plumbing, and HVAC and any necessary permits. We can also incorporate features such as custom built-in cabinets, heated flooring, wood or gas fireplaces, or specialty wiring for surround systems and other entertainment needs.

Basement framing is typically completed by the builder, but we offer framing services if you want to make changes to the layout. In developed basements, we may perform a full demolition of the existing finishings and start from scratch. We provide framing and prepping services, whether we’re adding bedrooms, wet bars, built-in shelving, custom cabinets, or remodelling the stairs.

Basement development projects often require a building permit in addition to electrical, plumbing, and mechanical permits. If your remodel includes adding bedrooms or developing a secondary suite, we also consider building codes for window sizes and room dimensions. At Ultimate Renovations, we simplify the process and oversee the acquisition of all permits.

We work with plumbing, electrical and HVAC professionals, ensuring your basement development exceeds quality standards in every way. Plumbers will need to ensure proper drainage with the installation of new sinks and toilets, and HVAC professionals may choose to relocate some of the ducts to maximize the height and space in your basement.

Our architectural and interior design teams ensure a seamless process from start to finish. From basic family rec rooms with a fireplace and sitting area to steam rooms or saunas, our design process is vital to ensuring your dream basement comes to life. Our in-house crew has worked together for years with the intuition and cooperation needed to get the job done quickly.

Why Develop
Your Basement?

Did you know that a basement development in Calgary can increase your living space by 30-50%? Potential homebuyers frequently consider total livable square footage, upstairs and downstairs, when deciding if a home is right for them. Plus, most families love the idea of a move-in ready house. In addition to being attractive for buyers, a fully finished house opens up a world of possibilities for you and your family from a custom man cave to children’s playrooms and home office space to a complete home theatre.

A finished basement can increase the value of your home as you prepare to sell. Most importantly, however, it provides space for your family to grow and live. Our portfolio of past basement projects includes custom-designed playrooms, craft rooms, home offices, extra bedrooms, man caves, libraries, climbing walls, storage rooms, rec rooms, she-sheds, and more. Our primary goal is to ensure your house meets the demands of your expanding family.

We can transform your basement into the home gym of your dreams. Save money on monthly fees, skip the crowds, enjoy the equipment all to yourself, and experience the convenience of working out in your own home. We can make your home gym even more luxurious by adding a sauna, steam room, or spa.

Imagine the excitement of the theatre atmosphere in the comfort and convenience of your own home! Bring the big screen to life in your basement with custom wiring, theatre seating, and a projection wall. Or, think outside the box and consider a VR simulation room, indoor pool, or games room with custom built-in cabinets, tables, and lighting. Keep your guests well hydrated with a classic wet bar featuring a built-in wine rack and glass storage. If you can think of it, we can build it.

How We Make Your Dreams a Reality

At Ultimate Renovations, we specialize as basement contractors in Calgary. Because basement projects often involve complex plumbing and electrical requirements, we recommend staying away from DIY solutions. Regardless of whether you require an electrical panel upgrade, light fixture installation, window replacement, specialty wiring, or plumbing hookup, we believe the best designs begin with a vision and a dream. The planning and design phases are especially important when it comes to remodelling, and at Ultimate Renovations, we ensure that all costs, labour, and timelines are budgeted for and confirmed before construction even begins. We aim for a smooth and stress-free experience for you, which is why we work hard to contain the mess and noise of our construction site. If necessary, we can find temporary accommodations for you to stay in while we work our magic.

Timelines vary based on the extent of the project. Streamlined planning helps the rest of the project go quicker. If needed, we can find you temporary accommodations to stay in while we work on your home.

Vinyl tiles and vinyl planking are some of the hottest products on the market. The biggest advantage is that vinyl is 100% waterproof, making it a great option for basements. Laminate, carpet, and natural hardwood floors are other popular materials. Our designer will discuss all flooring options with you during the planning phase.

As you prepare for our crews, you should ensure the area is clear of all belongings, so we can get the work done as efficiently as possible. We also recommend setting a reasonable budget, determining priorities, and making some preliminary decisions regarding finishes and upgrades.

Everything You Need
to Know About Our Process

When starting from scratch, basement developments can require more planning and strategy than other projects. Our project managers take the time to confirm costs, secure labour and acquire all necessary electrical, plumbing, mechanical, and building permits on your behalf, while our in-house interior designers can help you make material, finishing, and decor selections. In the end, not only will your space look fantastic, but we also ensure the quality of everything ‘behind the scenes’ — from smart home wiring and energy-efficient egress windows to upgraded electrical panels. You deserve quality, and we never deliver anything less. Visit our showroom in Southcentre Mall to get ideas or to ask questions to our Calgary basement developers.
