Home Renovation FAQs

How much does it cost to do a renovation?

Bathroom:  the average cost of a bathroom renovation is about $15,000 to $20,000 but it depends on the size of the room and the type of finishes you use.   It can be as little as $9,000 but can go up to $40,000

Kitchen:   most kitchens cost between $100 to $250 per square foot for renovations.  Like bathrooms, the total cost will depend on the quality of the finishes, if you are changing appliances and light fixtures or just changing cabinets and countertops.

Basement:   renovations can be as little as $10,000 to $70,000, depending on if your basement is unfinished, if you want to put in a kitchen or bathroom,  or run wiring for a state-of-the-art sound system.

How long will my renovation project take?

Project length is dependent on the scope of work involved, availability of our trades as well as availability of material and supplies. We will prepare a project schedule to give you an estimate of the time line.

Is Granstone licensed, insured and bonded?

It is also registered with WSIB.   Granstone is also fully licensed to do renovation work in the Gatineau/Hull area.

How do I plan a home renovation?

The first step is to figure out what rooms need to be renovated and what you want these renovations to accomplish

After that, it is really important to develop a budget so that you can understand the type of finishes you want.  

Plan for a contingency.   Even though renovation companies are good at estimating the cost of renovations, once you open walls, you can discover things that were not expected and planned

You may also want to visit our “plan a project” section to get a detailed step by step of our countertop and home renovation projects.

How important is it for the client to have a clear budget?

Yes, having a clear idea of your budget allows us to design within clear parameters.

If we overestimate your budget, time is wasted by proposing something that you cannot afford, while underestimating your budget leads to a proposed project that may not live up to the potential of what could otherwise be made.

Our designs and plans are customized for you in accordance with your budget.

How much planning goes into a renovation project?

Planning is the most important factor for a successful completion of the project.

If the project is launched on the right foot, issues and corrective measures will be reduced during the demolition and construction phases.

No matter what, stressful situations will arise in a renovation project. With the right planning in place, this stress will be minimized.  

We will only go forward with the project when you are fully on board with the design.  

We will also keep you informed at all the key steps in the project so that there are never any surprises.
