Developing your Basement


Are you wanting to add more value to your home?  Developing your basement can add $20,000 to $30,000 to your list price! Follow these next steps and to be successful in your endeavor.

1.       It is crucial to receive a basement developing permit.

2.       If you are planning to develop a secondary suite, check with the planning department to see whether your home is properly zoned for this.

3.        An inspection is required after the rough-in of the framing, plumbing, HVAC, gas and electrical. Make sure this inspection is done prior to installing the insulation and drywall.


To apply for a basement permit you must complete the accessory permit application form and submit to Building Inspections. A list of the permit application requirements have been provided in a list below for the City of Airdrie.
