The basement of a home was historically used for storage, but today, most Vancouverites are finding other uses for this space, such as additional bedrooms, crafting areas, dens, entertaining area, rentable suites and other functional spaces.
Whether you are starting from ground zero or you have a bunch of ideas saved on your Pinterest and Houzz accounts, our Design + Build team will help execute a beautiful renovation from start to finish. Basement projects come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some transformations include basement finishing systems, children’s playroom, home theaters, wet bars, wine cellars and rooms, man caves, in-law suites, home offices, state-of-the-art laundry and/storage rooms, and of course cost-efficient rental suites.
These terms are broken down in the contract based on progress with a completion date included. Once the work is completed to a pre-determined point, a pre-determined payment is made, with final payment due upon completion.
The budget and a reasonable time frame are stated in the contract, which is signed by all parties with copies provided before breaking ground or the start any project. Our goal is to get your project finished as quickly as possible and stay on budget so we can move on to the next job. Check with our references and you can see for yourself if it’s not due to nature or outside forces, we do what we say, when we say.
Highlands Master Builders carries a 5 million dollar general liability policy, and complete coverage by WCB. We also offer additional course of construction insurance to our clients at discounted rates through our partner, Federated Insurance.
We have done many renovations in the past, but Highlands crew was outstanding. It is rare to find a construction company that has so much knowledge and experience and has the leadership to see a project through from the beginning to the end. They were always onsite, early in the morning. They were pleasant, polite and always cleaned up at the end of the day. We were actually sad when they left, as they were like family friends staying at our house!
If you want a great crew, outstanding workmanship, transparent and easy to understand billing this is THE company! We would hire Andrew and the guys back for another project any time. Thank you again for going the extra mile – we are very grateful.
