Consult with a Remodeling Contractor
Collaboration is key to a successful renovation or remodel. We love working collaboratively with our clients to develop customized basement blueprints. Our contracting crew specializes in both full and partial basement remodeling projects. From framing to furnishing, we're the team you can count on to make your remodeling dreams come true.
But you don't just have to take our word for it. We're prepared to prove it to you. Starting with a no-obligation, one-on-one consultation with a certified contractor. Get in touch with us, and we'll set up an in-home appointment with you at your earliest convenience. We'll send one of our seasoned contractors to your home to meet you and walk through your basement.
We'll speak with you about all your project ideas in-depth and become familiar with your needs, budget, and time frame. As much as we consider our consultations an opportunity for us to get to know you, we also want you to get to know us, too. If you like, our contractors will gladly share our professional insights and advice on product selections and room layouts to help you achieve your goals.
Detailed Plan and Cost Estimate
From there, we can draw up a detailed plan of action and cost estimate for your consideration. The reason our consultations are so in-depth is that we want to provide you with as accurate a quote as possible. We'll be sure to factor in all material and labor fees to show you a full cost breakdown of the job at hand. With this estimate, you will know exactly what you are paying for, and you’ll know exactly how hard we strive to satisfy our clients. From sourcing the best materials to precise time-management, our efforts save you lots. You’ll save on both time and money in the long and short-run. And you’ll have us to thank for the savings.
Everything you need to know from the get-go. We refuse to do business any other way. We don’t think you should settle for anything less, either.
Client-Focused Basement Construction
When we've hammered out all the details, and you're thrilled with the result, we can get to work. Our clients continually commend our construction crew for their commitment to customer satisfaction. We recognize that renovating your home is a significant undertaking, which is why we strive to make your experience as convenient and stress-free as possible.
How do we do it? For starters, we consider ourselves guests in your home. What’s more, we always remember that we’re working on your behalf. We'll schedule our working days around your timetable, and your project supervisor will always keep open lines of communication should you ever need to change your itinerary. What's more, we'll treat your property with the respect it deserves by maintaining a clean and safe work site from start to finish. Finally, as we complete each step in the project, we'll check in with you to make sure our workmanship gets your full stamp of approval.
Some people might consider our meticulous and courteous approach a little excessive, but as homeowners ourselves, we would never think of settling for anything less. Our goal is twofold, after all. We want to bring your dreams to life, but we also want to do so as smoothly as possible.

Build the basement of your dreams. With our contracting crew, it’s easy to do.
Beginning Basement Construction
Once you’ve given us the green light on our design drafts and our team has procured all necessary building permits, our crew jumps into action. Our construction process is a tried and true sequence of events designed to deliver your completed basement in the shortest amount of time. From beginning to end, you’ll have a project manager overseeing each phase. You’ll be able to liaise them throughout each stage of construction, including:
If your home already has an existing basement, our contractors will safely and carefully dismantle it. As an environmentally conscious company, we’ll repurpose and recycle whatever materials we can. You can count on us to efficiently tear-out the room and haul away all debris off-site to the appropriate waste recovery facilities.
Laying the Groundwork
When we’ve exposed the bare bones of your basement, the real work begins. At this stage, we’ll lay the groundwork for a waterproof and warm room by installing plumbing, electrical, framing, and insulation. Rest assured, we have longstanding working partnerships with local subcontractors who share our commitment to quality workmanship. We’ll supervise and approve all the work that goes into your basement to make sure it’s compliant and meets our in-house standards for technical excellence.
Installing the Basement
Watch your basement materialize before your very eyes as our crew begins to install the final touches the interior, such as flooring, cabinetry, counters, and more. At this stage in construction, you’ll really see your blueprint come to life. As always, your supervisor will communicate with you about schedules and completion times, so you’ll always be up to date with our progress.
When the basement is complete, our crews will do a final sweep of the room to clean up the dirt and debris created along the way. We’ll unveil the finished product to you and make sure we’ve earned your full stamp of approval. We’ll also arrange for a professional to inspect our handiwork and sign off to verify that it’s ready for occupancy.
Renovate your basement with Carosyl Home Additions Inc.!
Whether you are looking to update the look of your basement or improve its functionality, we can help! At Carosyl Home Additions Inc., we have performed basement renovations for numerous reasons, including:
Entertainment: When most homeowners are thinking about a basement renovation, a bar, pool table, or surround sound system comes to mind - it's easy to see why! Basements can be so much more than a storage area - they are an awesome space to entertain guests or spend quality time with your family!
Additional Income: It may have crossed your mind to turn your basement into an apartment. Basement apartments are a great choice for savvy homeowners who are looking to bring extra income. While the upfront cost of kitchenette and bathroom may seem steep, a basement apartment will quickly pay for itself!
Extra Space: As your children become teenagers, they want more privacy - or perhaps, you want them out of your hair. A basement can easily be transformed into the ultimate chill zone by installing drywall, flooring, and lighting.
Basement Renovation Benefits
Think about it, you will be able to entertain guests without the added stress of wondering if you have enough room for everyone. You'll never have to worry over excluding friends from events because there isn't enough space or kick everyone out when the party has ended because there is no place for anyone to crash. A renovation will do wonders when it comes large scale get-togethers and you will save money on renting out a hall for dinners, reunions, anniversary's and other gatherings!
Another great benefit to creating a livable, modernized space in your basement is the ability to expand your home to accommodate an additional bathroom and/or guest's room. You'll be able to have family visiting from out of town stay with you. They'll greatly appreciate the gesture and be extremely happy with not having to rent out a pricey hotel room. Additional accommodation is especially helpful during the holiday season because you won't need to deal with the tension of re-ranging your entire household due to inadequate sleeping arrangements for guests.
How to Finish an Unfinished Basement
It's not much of a stretch to suggest that for many homeowners, the basement is an afterthought, left alone to guard rubber bins full of keepsakes, house water heaters, or hide laundry rooms and cat litter boxes.
As we've gone over elsewhere in this article, when you leave your basement unfinished, you leave some of the best real estate in your home unused. Your unfinished basement represents a beautiful opportunity to elevate you and your loved ones' enjoyment of your home to the next level. Consider it a big life upgrade just waiting to happen.
So what's the problem then? Why does the thought of tackling basement renovations freeze so many homeowners in their spots?
At Carosyl Home Additions Inc., we have a theory about why so many people don't finish their basements. But it's actually two theories. The first reason? Most homeowners have no idea how much it's going to cost. The second goes even deeper: most homeowners have no idea where to start.
The Eye Knows What the Heart Wants: How Basement Remodeling Idea Photos Can Inspire Your Design Vision
Before you even look at your bank balance, Carosyl Home Additions Inc. recommends going all-out and looking online and in design magazines at beautiful refinished basements. Don't pay attention to price. We're serious! By giving yourself the freedom to imagine your ultimate basement design, you'll be practicing something crucial to basement renovation on a budget: knowing what you can and cannot live without.
For every homeowner, their dream basement incorporates something different. If money is no object and you choose a $10,000 gold-plated toilet for yourself, that's probably a good sign that your basement bathroom is more important to you than, say, the flooring.
Be Realistic About What You Can Accomplish: Look at Basement Renovation Before and After Photos
When you're looking at basement remodeling idea photos, it's easy to get distracted by the end project. But every beautiful basement has a unique beginning. For a clearer idea of what can be done with the space you're working with, look at before and after photos. There's no point in planning a grand palatial basement if you only have 200 square feet to work with!
Basement Renovation on a Budget
Now that the fantasy planning is out of the way and you know the practical situation you're dealing with, it's time to assemble your budget. Carosyl Home Additions Inc. recommends creating a budget spectrum with maybe three different estimates of what you're willing to spend. The first: your absolute maximum. This should be the point where you start to wince if you imagine going even one dollar over.
Then, calculate your bare-bones absolute minimum figure you think you'll be able to spend and still end up with a good-looking space. Now take those two figures and find a figure somewhere in the middle. Drop ten percent. Give this figure to any basement renovation company or general contractors you'll deal with, and your basement remodeling should be as painless as possible.
Once we have determined your budget, we will know how to efficiently seek out proper materials and establish budget-friendly contingency plans. The more we are on the same page, the better. You’ll get the results you want for the price you expect.
We Offer a Variety of Basement Restoration Services
By renovating your basement, you are creating a more livable and functional place for you and your loved ones. How? Renovations will allow you to customize your space so that it suits your personal needs. Whether you need an office, gym, workshop, additional storage or guest's rooms, Carosyl Home Additions Inc. will renovate your basement in accordance to what you want and need:
Office: In today's internet age, working from home is not only becoming increasingly easier but more efficient as well. Instead of heading into the office every day and dealing with a traffic filled two-way commute, you can easily be working from the comfort of your personal office space. Carosyl Home Additions Inc. can create a custom-built office for you in your basement. We can incorporate just about anything, from additional windows for extra light to personalized storage and shelving space.
Gym: When you have gym access in your very own home, it's likely that you'll work out more frequently. You won't need to worry about getting to your exercise class on-time or waiting for your favorite machine. You'll even save money, since you won't need to purchase a gym membership. If you're looking to create the ideal workout space, Carosyl Home Additions Inc. can help you to achieve that.
Workshop: If you're someone who likes to work on projects that include woodwork and carpentry, and always wanted your own personal workshop, a basement is the idea spot for that. If you’re lucky, you already have an unfinished basement right beneath your feet. All it needs is a little TLC courtesy of renovation professionals like us.
Bathrooms: Sometimes one or two bathrooms are just not enough, especially for a healthy, growing family! Adding a bathroom in your basement is a very smart move and it will most definitely add market value to your home. Friends, possible future tenants, and those visiting family members will thank you for the basement bathroom.

While some projects may inevitably take a little more time to complete than others, you can rest assured that we will take no more time than necessary. How can we ensure this, you ask?

When contractors plan as well as we do, avoidable mishaps are completely avoided, and outcomes are as predictable as can be. When we’re sticking to the plan, material shortages will never be an issue, because we’ll have a clear idea at the very outset of what we need for the job.
