General Contracting

——————————

The Renovation Co-op defines General Contracting as the professional management of 2 or more unrelated, single-trade services that are part of the same project.

For example: Basement Finishing, Additions, or a Kitchen Renovations.

The Co-op offers 8 types and levels of General Contractor-Members…from licensed contractors who perform smaller projects totally by themselves, … up to Design-Build Contractors who manage the construction of large-scale, $500,000-to-$1 million+ Additions and Custom Homes.

—————————-

However, one of the toughest things a homeowner faces when seeking a contractor, is the inability to precisely determine the type and level of work that a contractor performs on a regular basis, which leads to obtaining estimates that are spread out “all over the place.”

Basement Renovations

There is no question that when you add living space to your home, you increase the home’s value.

This is true anywhere across the country. However, given the sheer density of homes within the core of larger cities as Toronto, extra living space can become extremely valuable.

Whether you plan to convert your basement into a Family Room, a Rental Apartment or Home Theatre, The Renovation Co-op will provide the services of only those member-contractors who specialize in the specific type and level of work required to complete your basement project

Kitchen Renovations

Whether its a simple cabinet retrofit or the complete structural renovation of your existing Kitchen, you need a team of professionals to get it done according to your own personal taste… not someone else’s.

Whether it’s an Economy or Designer-level Kitchen Renovation, all cabinetry is custom-designed by our professional showroom kitchen designers.

Bathroom Renovations

If you need to renovate your bathroom, the age of your existing bathroom may determine whether to do a simple retrofit (change the fixtures only) or tear down your entire bathroom and rebuild it from “scratch”.

And if you live in an older, downtown home where the bathroom is too small for your needs, a good design will expand the area without taking away too much space from the rest of the home.

Note: A permit is required for any structural work to be performed inside your home. If you don’t have your own architect or structural designer, The Renovation Co-op offers its own Architectural Design & Permit Services.

In addition…if you purchase your drawings through the our organization, and the work is later performed by a member-contractor, you will receive an Architectural Rebate of up to $1,500 that will be deducted from the final price.  Read More… or Request an Estimate for Architectural Services

For homeowners living in the core of the city who find themselves needing a lot of additional living space, there are only 3 choices:

1-Find an affordable, larger home within the GTA likely outside of the existing neighborhood.
2-Move out of the city altogether into a larger, sub-division home.
3-Stay put by knocking down the existing home and re-building a newer, larger one.
