Basement Apartment & Separate Entrance
Transforming a basement into an apartment with an independent entrance is, in fact, one of the most popular basement conversions that we are asked to undertake. This type of apartment is ideal for older parents, grown children still living at home, visiting friends and family, or even to rent out for a little extra income. Often the basement space under a house offers an additional 50% more usable floor space which can easily be divided into a good sized sitting room, kitchen area, one or two bedrooms and a bathroom.
You can keep access to this area with your existing inside stairway so when the apartment is not being used by guests you can enjoy it as a home gym, office, children’s play room, meditation center, or even just make the most of the extra storage space and bathroom.
At Martel Group, before we carry out any kind of basement transformation we always thoroughly inspect the underlying structure of your property to ensure that there are no unresolved problems with cracked walls, damaged foundations, leaking downspouts, other leaks, mold, damp spots, inadequate insulation or other common basement issues.
If we do find that your basement is damp and full of mildew we will carry out the necessary repairs to ensure that you have optimum circulation of air and humidity levels to transform it into a warm, dry and healthy place for you and your family to enjoy.
If your basement is gloomy and dark and the style of construction permits, we can cut out egress windows or French doors so that more natural light can flood in. Alternatively, we are experts in installing recessed and other types of ceiling lights so that you get excellent artificial lighting making your once dank and gloomy below grade space into a bright and energized part of your home.
