SERVICES

DESIGN

Clearspan Construction will encourage the customer to consult with one of our selected professional interior designers to assist with the plan for a layout of the new space and to help make selections in finishing materials. A designer is an invaluable asset in the planning of the project details, they have all the resources at their finger tips: Vendors, appliances, fixtures, colours, fabrics, accessories and then provide the vision to pull it all together in harmony.

Construction Management

Our team of experienced trades professionals is committed to providing the skills and experience to the project to transform your home into your dream. We use only licensed plumbers and electricians, qualified and skilled tradesmen for each renovation and ensure that work is at least to current building code. Daily updates and progress is reported to the customer to inform and to ensure work is carried out as planned.

Kitchens

Your kitchen is the most used space in your home and is the hub of social gatherings and is thereby the focal point that sets the tone for the rest of the adjoining spaces. Your kitchen should be durable, sturdy, well built, practical, beautiful and bright. Recent trends see kitchens growing in size to incorporate pantries, larger appliances, perhaps a writing station along with extra storage cabinetry and definitely an island or peninsula for gathering. To accommodate this space with an open concept to invite more light, space and people, we will likely be required to remove a load bearing wall and insert a beam in its place. This scenario has become the most common request in modern kitchen layouts and load wall removal requires some engineering, permits and a qualified professional to carry it out.

Bathrooms

The bathroom is another area where we see a boon in innovation and products such as linear drains for a curb-less shower, built in body sprays or a flush mount rain head, heated floors and heated towel racks, glass walls that save space and allow light to fill the room, LED accent lights in mirrors, drains and ceiling and so on, that have allowed us to create from the limits of our imaginations the most comfortable bathroom to the most splendid spa. Bathrooms are one of the most technical rooms in the house because water is involved so the utmost care is required to assemble drains, waterlines and the layers of waterproofing and finish materials by knowledgable professionals.

Basements

Basements are the most economical way to add useable square footage to your home, in fact, most basements mirror the main floor. We always advise the potential customer to at least maintain the same grade of finishes as on the main level. Since the basement is partially underground and is formed with concrete walls and floors, the only technical challenge is to install a barrier from the water that "breaths" through the porous concrete and to insulate from the cold emitted from subterranean surfaces and cold air ducts. The solution is to correctly build the walls, vapour barriers, insulation and a system for proper heat flow using qualified and knowledgeable professionals that understand airflow dynamics for these spaces. It should be noted that there are also better material options available, more suited to this particular building environment, such as metal framing and mold and mildew resistant wall board which will protect your investment.

Condos

The Clearspan Construction team of experienced pros has rebuilt numerous condo suites for many satisfied customer. Condo suite remodelling protocol varies from building to building and is the only variable that is difficult to calculate into the equation when scheduling the work because rules and regulations which vary and can greatly limit when and how you can work or gain access. Licensed, professional tradespeople perform all the commercial mechanical work and similarly all the finishes as specified by the client. All our work is under warrantee for one year and carries liability and WSIB.

Exterior projects

Our exterior work includes converting car ports to closed garages, building a small bumped out kitchen addition, bricking in openings in masonry walls, building faux stone facade to masonry surfaces around chimneys and foundations, replacing doors and windows, installing siding, building a front door overhang to structures, decks, fences, pergolas.

PROCESS

STEP

ONE

Meet with the client and listen to what the client is trying to accomplish and to look over the areas of the proposed work, take measurements, photos, discuss style and the budget. We will also outline our process and what to expect during the course of the work.

STEP

FOUR

An itemized list of the scope of work and associated costs will be prepared, this makes item costs transparent which is helpful for example, in the case where substitution or elimination of work and materials are made. The Project Description will form part of the signed agreement to begin the work and once accepted, will require a deposit to be payed to begin purchases. A disbursement schedule will be included which will outline the arrangement for periodic payments as work progresses.

STEP

TWO

We will prepare a scaled floor plan to show the proposed changes and relative spaces we will have once changes are implemented. The floor plan also lays out the proposed lighting zones and lighting type, with consideration to the proposed function and use of the area. A good lighting scheme allows you to create different lighting moods at different times of the day.

STEP

FIVE

Drawings are submitted and permits are obtained. Once all planning details are complete a start date can be arranged and work can begin. You can expect daily communications to inform you of the progress of your project and inform you of the next steps that will be taken.

STEP

STEP
