6 Ways To Refinish Your Basement

Posted by on Aug 25, 2016 in blog | 0 comments

Do you have an empty and unfinished basement? Well, maybe it’s time for a basement renovation! Since we spend lots of time at home, and the housing prices are growing in Hamilton & Toronto, why not add a little more value? Here are some of Skyrock Construction’s best Refinished Basement Ideas.   An At Home Bar Why head out to a restaurant to catch the game, when you can invite your friends over to your new finished basement bar. Accent it with a pool table, bar stools, hardwood flooring, bar counter, and a 60” tv to tie it all together.   A Home Office A home office can provide an organized, quite space for getting work done. Create your office suite by renovating your basement into a home office. A nice hardwood floor, some dry wall, paint, and office furniture can make it easy to get to work.   A Home Gym Having a home gym can be much cheaper than a membership. Incorporating large mirrors, over your walls, a sauna, a large TV,  treadmills, weight machines, a boxing heavy bag, and benches can be just as good as hitting your local gym- all in the comfort of your own home!   A Basement Apartment This can be a great investment. Adding a suite to your home once the proper zoning application has been approved can create extra income for your family, or extra space for family members to reside in. Call Skyrock Construction, because our staff are knowledgeable about the proper building, fire, electricity and housing laws to finish your suite.   A Children’s Playroom Adding a playroom in your basement can be a fun way to keep playtime fun, tidy, and safe. Start by getting rid the concrete flooring and putting in a hardwood floor for easy clean-up. Add a large play mat, and incorporate tons of storage and small children’s furniture in bright colours.   Extra Food Storage If you pantry is too small in your kitchen. Create a storage room and cellar for all of your groceries downstairs. At Skyrock Construction, your Bathroom & Kitchen Renovation Contractor Hamilton & Toronto, we always want to assess...

Here are a few renovations you should always leave to the professionals if you want to save yourself the reno headache and your hard earned cash.   New Windows If you plan on putting in new windows you should always call a professional.

Call the professionals when you want to do any electrical work.   New Walls If you are planning to add new walls to your home for new rooms or get rid of old ones to  expand old rooms you should consider calling a contractor.

4 Different Layouts to Freshen Up Your Kitchen

4 Different Layouts to Freshen Up Your Kitchen

Posted by on Aug 11, 2016 in blog, Home Renovations | 0 comments

Kitchen renovations are a great way to update your home. As one of the most-used rooms of all, it’s important to have a kitchen design that you love, and is functional for your needs. Skyrock has a few renovation suggestions, to help take your kitchen style from out-dated, to contemporary.   One Wall One wall kitchens are great for saving space. They place all of your appliances, counter space, cabinets and sinks on one wall so the kitchen table can sit parallel to your appliances for an open concept look. Many people use these open-concept kitchens in one bedroom apartments and bachelors so they can economize their square footage.   L-Shaped These kitchens have two walls of counter and stovetop space to cook on. Appliances are usually spread out on either wall and at the end of the aisle in a corner, a kitchen table is placed. Space is still maximized, so these kitchens are great in small and medium sized residences. Skyrock can set up meetings and take to you to showrooms to help you select the best cabinets and counters to use in your home.   Horseshoe Kitchens These kitchens make use of 3 walls to create a grand and open space in the center. Often people place the kitchen table within this open space to create a centralized eating space, as opposed, to an open concept.   Island Kitchens These kitchens make great use of the space and have the most versatile layout. The island can act as an extra counter, a breakfast bar, a stovetop or even an oven. You can add an island to any of the above kitchens to change the layout and add a modern flair. Whatever the layout, Skyrock does an initial consultation with each client to make sure that we can give you a kitchen that is functional, has its required permits and is within your budget.   If you would like to know more information about Skyrock Construction, your bathroom and kitchen renovation contractor Hamilton & Toronto, contact us today using our convenient online form and ask us for a quick...

If you’re thinking about tackling a bathroom or kitchen renovation this summer, SKYROCK Construction has some steps you can take to get you pointed in the right direction: What Is the One Thing You Want to Change the Most? There’s something in your bathroom or kitchen that is irritating you beyond belief that needs to go. It’s something you’ve been commenting on and you just aren’t happy with the way it looks or functions. That’s the one thing that you should be focusing on at the beginning. Do you want to upgrade the flooring? Do the bathroom tiles need updating or are you ready to switch to a new tub surround? Perhaps you’re dreaming of a granite or quartz countertop to replace the old yellow laminate one that’s currently there and full of stains and cuts.

Design around the First Priority So, for example, you have decided to change your old flooring and upgrade it to something new and exciting. The expert design team at SKYROCK Construction can help you choose new flooring to install, and our renovation professionals will take care of all installation. In your design plan, you will also be able to choose new countertops, window coverings, appliances and anything else you need to upgrade in the kitchen.

As well, the lighting fixtures, vanities, window coverings and other bathroom accessories can now be picked out based on your flooring choice. Look at the Functionality of the Room How is the room currently working for you? Do you have enough space to get things done in the kitchen? Is your bathroom spacious enough and are all the plumbing fixtures working properly? If not, now is the time to address these things as well. The SKYROCK professionals can design and execute your renovation vision.

How to Choose Your New Wood Flooring

Posted by on Jul 22, 2016 in blog | 0 comments

If you are interested in renovating your new home, you should always consider calling in a Kitchen Contractor in Toronto. There are plentiful wood features that may be difficult for a novice renovator to work with. Skyrock Construction has years of industry experience; below are a few tips for choosing your new wood floor!   Types of Wood Flooring There are two different basic types of wood flooring; engineered hardwood and solid hardwood. Engineered hardwood is the product of two different woods layered together; compressed to look like one piece. Solid hardwood is one piece of wood. Both are available in various sizes and thickness.   Choice of Wood There are many types of wood to choose from when picking your brand new flooring. It’s important to carefully select the type of hardwood you’d like in your home as they come in a variety of colours and grains. If you are interested in a lighter wood you should consider wood from a Maple or Ash. If you prefer dark wood flooring then you should consider Walnut or American Cherry.   Wood Texture To get a unique texture for your hardwood flooring you can choose from four different options; handscraped, distressed, smooth surface or wire-brushed. Wire-brushed and distressed woods can give your floor a beautiful rustic look. Smooth and even surfaced floors are more popular in new homes. You can also mix two different styles together for a unique look.   Wood Finish Like most wooden furniture you can select a lacquer to stain your hardwood floor. There is a selection of matte, satin and glossy finishes. Skyrock Construction has a unique dust containment unit that can be set-up if you need someone to come sand, stain and refinish your current hardwood floors.   Looking to start a renovation before the summer is over?
