The Smart Reno team is well aware of the impacts COVID-19 has on the renovation industry. As we navigate through this uncertainty, we want to share some thoughts with you as we all navigate this rapidly evolving situation together.

Health

First and foremost, our community's health and safety is our top priority. We do hope that you and your families are keeping safe.

Our website will remain functional and you can continue to reach our team by email or phone. We are happy to stay in touch to help you navigate through these challenging times.

Government imposed guidelines

As government guidelines are revised on a daily basis, we encourage both homeowners and contractors to follow the guidelines in their jurisdiction and adjust their normal way of doing business accordingly.

Some impacts may include:

  • Delayed projects for homeowners;
  • Delayed responses for new project submissions;
  • Delayed in-person visits from contractors for a quote;
  • Some materials may be temporarily out of stock.
What we can do in the meantime

Homeowners can continue to submit projects on our website, and take this time to thoroughly plan your home renovation projects to be ready once business resumes. As a reminder, Smart Reno offers a free Cost Estimator to help you plan your next renovation project.

We encourage our network of contractors to continue to engage in conversations with homeowners using alternative options like phone and video. Contractors can also submit quotes remotely, and help clients plan their next renovation to ensure they're prepared for the future.

Things to consider before renovating your basement

Want to give new life to your basement? The possibilities are endless! From a simple home office to a full living space, these improvements will give your home significant added value.

Trust the expertise of Smart Reno, we can refer you to the best specialists in your area while guaranteeing you a fast and reliable service.

Here are the things to consider before starting your renovation.

Ceiling height

In most cases, the pipes used to transmit hot water and heating take a significant amount of room and lower the ceiling. It is therefore important to verify that this factor, in relation to the addition of a floor, does not impair your basement renovation projects.

Ground leveling

Some basements were not originally designed to be livable. Among them, we find spaces in which the ground is not level or is slanted. Is your basement one of these special cases? Tell us about it in your project summary, and we'll find a renovation expert accustomed to this type of work!

Humidity level

What happens when there is moisture in your basement? This should be considered if you decide to integrate a bathroom in this new space.

Before you start planning this part of your home, we advise you to check the effectiveness of your insulation: it would be a shame to damage your newly renovated room because of humidity!

Lighting to be planned

Basements are generally darker than the rest of the house. Carefully check the light sources available to you: basement windows, suitable lighting, etc. For a pleasant living space, your room should be bright enough!


Smart Reno will assist you throughout your efforts to help you make your basement a pleasant, sound and sustainable living space! Don’t hesitate any longer and embark on the great adventure of renovation! We will quickly find you a qualified contractor who will listen to your concerns and take your project to the next level.
