At Aalto Renovations & Development we are an Independent Basement Development & Legal Secondary Suite company in Kelowna, Penticton, Vernon & surrounding areas. We can provide complete Basement Development, Secondary Legal Suite & Basement Renovation contractor services to assist homeowners with any project they may be considering.

Qualified experience, cost-efficient planning & friendly professional service help make our projects run smoothly & efficiently. Most projects are fairly straightforward in terms of overall project planning & we work together with homeowners to build what they have in mind for their space.

Aalto Renovations is an independent construction company & we have enjoyed this distinction over the years. We don’t prefer to have fancy websites that have pop-ups every minute. We don’t have wasteful buildings. Instead, we keep things simple & that allows us to provide efficient on-site project planning & affordable construction costs.

Kelowna Basement Development

Residential homes with an unfinished or undeveloped basement are often overlooked as valuable living space. A properly developed or renovated basement can generally add a third more living space to the average home. Whether it be a simple space to watch TV, office, bedrooms or gym equipment, the options to make use of unused basement space are endless.

Project Warranty

Most renovation & development projects are relatively straightforward & all projects we work on are inspected by the City of Kelowna multiple times. Twice in fact.(ex. Rough-in inspection & Final inspection which are required for each independent trade). From the inception of our company, we are proud to say we have not had an instance of a client request to return & fix a construction deficiency. However, we are all human. Should any reasonable deficiency be overlooked or missed by multiple inspections & by us, we would happily correct the issue at no expense to a homeowner. It’s simple really. If completed correctly the first time there should be no need to correct it after the fact.

Guaranteed Project Quote

After viewing & discussing any Basement Development, Legal Secondary Suite or Home Renovation project we will have a better idea of what a homeowner may be considering for their space. We will provide an accurate quote to complete the work & our quote won’t change. Although rare, the only reason our quotes would ever change is if we find hidden/faulty issues behind walls (ie illegal Electrical/ Plumbing/ Structural etc) that we couldn’t reasonably see during our initial visit. As an experienced Basement Development Contractor these instances are rare, however we have seen some of these issues & more commonly in older homes or spaces that have been previously developed.

No Up Front Deposits Required

We are very proud of the reputation we have developed since we started our company. One simple way we build trust with homeowners is by not accepting any upfront deposits. We complete a large portion of the work on our Basement Development & Home Improvement projects before accepting our first payment. This provides homeowners with peace of mind that they aren’t going to have issues with “Less Than Professional” contractors. We have all heard the bad stories & we have been contacted on occasion to help fix some of these stories. At Aalto Renovations we take every measure to separate ourselves from some of the problems in our industry, and not accepting deposits is one step toward meeting that end.

Assured Project Quality

At Aalto Developments & Renovation we approach each project we take on with attention to detail & a commitment to complete any project as we would our own home. For us, this principle is important. Any Home Renovation, Basement Development or Secondary Suite is an investment in both time & money and we have done so in our own homes over the years. Not every project can be completed by a single person or a single company. Most construction or renovation projects require the skills of partner trade professionals such as electrical, plumbing, gas, hvac, etc & we believe the success of any project, large or small, is directly related to the competence and integrity of the people we work with. We stand by our work & honour that commitment.

Setting up a convenient time to view a project & requesting an estimate is simple.. Feel free to contact us by phone, email, or use our website contact page to schedule an initial meeting for any home improvement project or basement development being considered. Generally we are available for project quotes after 6pm on weekdays & the weekends are flexible as needed.

During an initial meeting we will be able to view & discuss what a homeowner may be considering for their space. As every home is built differently, so are the mechanical locations (ie. location of plumbing rough-ins, location of heating & ventilation, location of posts & egress windows etc). Usually the location of these mechanicals help dictate the best layout & options available. We can offer our advice to help make these decisions a little easier for homeowners.

Should you choose us to work with, we would then submit the required paperwork & obtain the necessary permits.

Once all the paperwork is in order, work would begin. After many projects we like to explain the building process like this.. Most renovation & construction projects are similar to the classic video game Tetris. Each piece needs to fit at the right time & in the right order to make a project run efficiently & smoothly.
