Q. My basement has flood damage and the gypsum board was exposed to flood water. What should be replaced?
A. Flood water contains many contaminants that can cause health problems. The drywall should be removed at least 2 feet from the floor and dried to avoid mold build up. If too much time has passed since the damage and the removal, the insulation and framing may need to be replaced.
Q. What is the average time needed for renovation work?
A. This all depends on the size of a project. A small renovation can take 7 – 10 days. A complete basement renovation is on average about 4 to 6 weeks.
Q. Is a lot of dust created throughout the house?
A. Throughout a renovation, different stages cause more dust than others. All efforts will be taken to minimize the amount of dust spreading to areas not involved with renovation.
Q. Can I still live in my house during renovations?
A. Depending on the nature of the renovation, you shouldn’t have to move anywhere. For most basement renovations, we can work around home owner’s schedules to make the whole process less invasive.
Q. What areas do you service?
A. Our service area is wide, depending on the nature of the project. From Hamilton in the west, Barrie to the north and Whitby to the east, we can provide services to many different cities.
