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.

Are you aware of the enormous potential your basement holds?

Essentially, a properly renovated basement can bring real added value to your home. Many Quebec City basements are currently under-developed, giving you an advantage over a good number of homeowners when you decide to renovate.

Smart Reno provides you fast and reliable assistance to help carry out your renovation projects. No need to spend hours on the phone looking for a contractor: we take care of everything for you.

Things to consider when renovating your basement in Quebec City

Many options are available if you decide to renovate your basement: do you want to make a bedroom? A living areas for your guests? A playroom for children? A well-insulated storage space?

We connect you with the most qualified contractors in the Quebec City area according to your specific project needs. You can be confident that our selection criteria ensure that you will be paired with the best basement renovation experts in Quebec City and the surrounding area.

However, before turning to a professional, it’s important to ask yourself if every area has been covered when planning your project. To find out, take the following points into consideration:

Is your ceiling high enough?

Hidden within the basement ceilings in Quebec City are a great number of a home’s essential components: water and heating pipes, various plumbing and more. The space occupied by these components tends to make the ceiling lower. Carefully inspect the area and make sure there is enough height to make the space habitable.

Is the ground level?

Quebec City has plenty of old homes with basements that can sometimes lead to startling discoveries. Uneven or sloping floors can be a very common issue! If you want to renovate this space, make sure your floor is level or choose one of our contractors to fix the problem.

What is the humidity level?

If the masonry work was poorly done when laying your foundations, you could run into humidity problems. Do not proceed with a basement renovation until this issue is resolved, otherwise the work will likely have to be redone.

What lighting is needed?

Quebec City's basements are generally not fitted with many windows. You should therefore plan adequate lighting, choose clear paint colors that aren’t too dark and, if possible, install windows to provide more light.

Looking for reliable and qualified contractors? Smart Reno helps you transform your basement by finding the best basement renovation experts in Quebec City. Create a space that brings you a sense of pride and adds value to your home at the same time!
