Luxury Home Renovations Calgary

By | renovations | No Comments

Luxury Home Renovations Calgary – this is a commonly searched topic on Google these days!

What exactly is a luxury home renovation? What constitutes luxury? Clearly, it is subjective. What seems like luxury to one person is another person’s bare minimum. It can be the difference between one client using quartz to upgrade their existing laminate counter, while the next client insists on using caesarstone®. And for the next client after that, nothing but Patagonia granite will do.

Luxury is subjective, and also comes with a price. What is your price point for your luxury home renovation? What is your goal? If you are staying and living in your home for a number of years to come, then we definitely recommend doing exactly what you want, at a price point you are comfortable with. If you are renovating to sell, you may not want to go all out, and this is probably not the scenario where you do a luxury home renovation.

Luxury – it’s the little things!

You will be surprised how small renovations or additions to your home can make it feel luxurious. Take, for example, the typical built in tub with surround – it can be dated and tired looking in no time. Now imagine taking that out, and install a stand up shower, tiled floor to ceiling, with a beautiful hinged glass door, and a lovely teak shower bench. You will turn your ordinary, boring bathroom into something luxurious. Add some inset storage shelves(also tiled), a rain head and steam shower options, and you are now spa level!

How about your kitchen? Tired of that old laminate? Ready to freshen things up? You will be surprised how affordable quartz is. If you are not fussy about brand names, you can achieve the same look for a fraction of the price, in a wide variety of colours and styles. These may not be the best examples, but below are two pictures – one is a brand name quartz, the other is not… For all intents and purposes, if you were not told, you would not know which was which.

Renovation Companies Calgary

Renovation Companies Calgary – when you search this term, so many pages come up, you don’t know where to start. Doing any sort of renovation or home improvement is a daunting process, so let Rhymack Homes Ltd. make it easier.

Let’s go!

ONE: The first thing you want to know about any company you do business with is are they licensed? In Calgary, any  renovation company you do business with should hold a city license.

TWO: If they ask for a deposit of any amount, they should also hold a prepaid contractor license (regulated by the Alberta Government). Ask for it! This ensures your deposit is insured. More than one renovation company in Calgary has gone belly up, along with their customer’s hard earned money as ‘deposits’. Don’t let it happen to you!

THREE: If renovating in Calgary, you also want to make sure the renovation company you choose has liability insurance (to protect against any mishap that may occur on or to your property). Ask for proof – any reputable company will provide a letter from their insurance company.

FOUR: Any renovating company should also be in good standing with WCB (Workers Compensation Board of Alberta). This will speak to their commitment to being safe on your jobsite.

FIVE: Are they a member of the Better Business Bureau? Being a member is a good sign of a conscientious business owner – that’s someone you want to do business with. Look for this logo:
