How much does home renovation cost in Calgary?
Calgary home renovation projects can vary widely in costs depending on the scope of the project and your project budget. For example, adding a wall to make an extra bedroom will be much more cost-effective than adding a full bathroom to your main floor. Another element that may affect the cost of your custom home renovation is the possibility of any construction that may involve structural changes. In this instance, an architect or engineer will be required to ensure all project elements are completed within specific architectural guidelines, which will also add some cost. Typically, kitchens, bathrooms, and ensuites tend to be the most expensive areas of a home to renovate. As a reliable home renovation company in Calgary, we will provide an accurate cost estimate for your renovation once we can discuss all the elements of your home renovation project with you.
