What should I have in place prior to calling for a quote?

The best advice we can give our customers is to do your research and make sure you are committed to the idea of starting a renovation/basement development. Prior to calling for a quote, you should have a rough idea as to:
• what you want done – for example, if you are developing a basement, you should know how many and what types of
rooms you want,
• what you are willing to spend and what your budget is,
• what your timing is – when are you planning on staring the project and when you would like to have it completed.

We will require this information in order to provide you with the most accurate quote as possible.
