What Is Involved In Conversions For Legal Suites
All in all basement conversion renovations involve:
- Permit acquisition
Without the proper permits you can face fines. Also, you risk the possibly of having to evict your tenants until the proper permits are in place.
- Ground work preparation
By and large this initial stage includes inspecting: moisture sources, cracks, drainage, window wells, floor drains, sump-pumps, and backwater valves.
- Space preparation
Next, we ensure foundation walls and floors are properly insulated. We look at inside and outside insulation options.
- Putting the mechanical and plumbing systems in place
By and large this contributes to your comfort and health. This is done with proper air circulation, and by controlling the humidity.
- Keeping it legal, and safe
As a rule we inspect electrical outlets and fixtures, windows, means of egress, and enclosure of the mechanical room. All regulations are adhered to.
- Finishes and coverings
Finally, our basement renovations are completed with moisture, mold, and mildew resistant materials. These materials also help prevent problems with insects. In short Edmonton Sunrooms And Renovations basement renovations are a great investment.
The City of Edmonton has several codes and regulations for basements suites used as rental properties; also known as secondary suites. We ensure all secondary suites meet these codes.
