I'm looking to convert my basement into a 1 bedroom legal basement apartment. The basement is about 800 square feet in size. There is a side entrance leading to the basement. I have attached a floor plan to give you an idea of what I would like to do.
We live in a 2-bedroom cottage. We have a chimney attached to the side of the home with damaged bricks. Water usually runs down the roof along the side of the chimney and over the winter with freeze and thaw cycle, the brick along the side of the chimney has become badly damaged.
We would like to get an opinion regarding the type of work would be best. Our intention is to tear down the chimney so that we can gain some room along the side of our home in order to extend our driveway because right now, the chimney is preventing us from extending the driveway. We would like to know if it is possible to tear down the chimney without compromising the structure of the home. If this is possible, then we would need someone to tear down the chimney, repair the outside wall of the home and fix/extend the roof. I am not sure what the cost is for this would be. If it's not possible to tear down the chimney, then we would require someone to fix the brick on the chimney and install something on the roof to re-direct water elsewhere so that we don't have this happen once again.

There are many reasons why you may want to go through a general contractor: building, renovating or even extending your home.
No matter your project, we can recommend the specialists that best match your request with professionalism, speed, and a complete respect of your ideas. A general contractor has considerable skills in many areas of construction, making it advisable to call one for large-scale multidisciplinary work.
In order to plan your project in the best way possible, it is important to keep the following points in mind:
Do not mistakenly confuse these two experts: they do not have the same skills or the same qualifications! A general contractor has all the qualifications to supervise any type of work. A specialist contractor will only have specific skills in certain areas. These skills are certified by the RBQ.
In order to avoid problems with misunderstanding each other, make sure you fully understand your general contractor. Be clear about your project and don’t hesitate to go over your expectations in detail. In doing so, you ensure that the expert has a clear vision of the work and your satisfaction will be guaranteed!
Depending on the professional and the availability of their teams, a contractor may choose to hire companies to subcontract part of the work: roofing, electricity, foundations, etc. If you are concerned, do not hesitate to speak with your expert: he can reassure you about his choice of subcontractors and their skillset.
One of the advantages of a general contractor is that his skills allow him to manage team coordination, inventory of materials and deadlines. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about the logistics of your project.
