What you can do with your full-home renovation

A full-home renovation can cover a lot of ground. With the possibilities of renovating your kitchen, adding new bathrooms, converting the basement into a bedroom, or creating an open-concept layout, the options are endless. Give your home an entirely new look and live in the space you have been dreaming of.

Full home renovation examples

If the walls in your home make the space feel limiting, creating an open-concept layout can make your space feel more spacious and improve the flow of your home. Removing the existing walls between your kitchen, dining, and living room can be a great way to change the layout of your home without having to do too much restructuring or to easily transform every room into an accessible common space.

While basements, garages, and attics are great storage spaces, they can also serve as additional bedrooms or an at-home office. By adding insulation, improved flooring, and accessible entries and exits, these rooms can expand your space without you having to add on to your home. Consider converting these spare rooms into new living spaces during your full home renovation.

Since stairs define the movement between floors, they often completely establish the flow of your home. So when you’re looking for a significant change with your full home renovation, why not relocate your staircase? By moving the stairs to another location, you can bring convenience, an improved flow, and a refreshed look to your home.

We know how stressful it can be to undertake a home renovation project. That's why we’re here to support you at every project stage, from planning to construction. From facilitating your search for a vetted general contractor to ensuring that your renovation goes smoothly, you can rest assured that your project is in good hands. We’ll be your right-hand person advocating for your vision all the way through so that the final results meet your expectations.

The average cost of a full-home renovation can vary depending on the size of the home, the number and types of rooms, and the exact renovations that you will be doing.

Here are some examples of work and costs that may be included in a full-home renovation:

Demolishing a wall for an open layout [based on 12x8ft wall]:

Non-load bearing:

Standard: $430

Mid-range: $417

High-end: $515

Load bearing +  structural engineering planning:

Standard: $2,025

Mid-range: $2,230

High-end: $2,435

The price of your renovation will also depend on the scope of the project. Our project managers will help you define your project scope and send you a detailed budget estimate before you meet with general contractors.

Billdr will help you find the right general contractor for your project. All of the general contractors we work with have gone through a rigorous vetting process to ensure high-quality craftsmanship and strong work ethics. Through our network, you’ll be able to choose from qualified and reliable contractors with valid licenses and insurance that covers personal injury and property damage.

Tell us about your project to set up a personalized phone call and home visit to assess your renovation needs. As soon as your detailed project scope and budget estimate are ready, your project will be live on our network of certified general contractors. Depending on your project’s size, you will then receive two-to-three comparable quotes to choose from.

A building permit is required if you plan on modifying how a room is being used (e.g. adding a bathroom, converting a bedroom into a kitchen, adding an extension, etc.) or changing the outside of your property (façade, windows, etc.). To find out if you need to apply for a permit, check with your municipality. You can also read our guides to learn more about building permits in Toronto or building permits in Montreal.

Changes to your project that occur once construction has started are called change orders. Navigating them can be tricky, but that’s why your Billdr project manager is here to help. You can send your change requests to your general contractor in writing, but make sure that your project manager is included in all communications. Before any changes are made, ask what kind of impact these changes will have on your timeline and the costs of your project to avoid unwanted surprises.
