Since launching in 2011, we have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of Calgary families on their basement developments and detached garage builds. A professional basement development is a smart way to add equity and get more enjoyment out of your home.
Developing your basement lets your family spread out with more space to enjoy and additional rooms for guests, or toys or workout equipment or anything else that works for you! More importantly, having a developed basement can bring families together by creating a space the entire family can enjoy!
Our professional team has developed all varieties of basements from simple spaces, to professional gyms, home daycares, custom man-caves, home theatres and more. We have the experience and knowledge to bring your basement vision to life!
Every basement we build is a custom basement! We use our $28,500 Custom Basement Package as the foundation for every project and then build up or down from there according to your requirements.
The vast majority of our clients want their basement to look and feel like an extension of their own home. We keep this in mind with every project while also offering budget conscious alternatives as well.
Our $28,500 Custom Basement Package includes everything you need to enjoy a great basement development. The package is based on projects with no more than 600sf of developed space and having 8ft ceilings. It includes a bedroom, living room, mechanical room and 4-piece bathroom.
The $28,500 Custom Basement Package is perfect for a large portion of our clients, and our average basement is usually in the low to mid $30,000s with a few upgrades.
On the low end we build basements for as little as $20,000 with a very simple design and no bathroom.
Some of the big ticket items that will drive up the price to the $30,000s and beyond are wet/dry bars, built-ins, custom showers, home theatres and more. Please visit our Basement Cost page for more information.
At ReImagine Builders, we simplify the basement development process by breaking up the tasks and addressing all aspects of your renovation with a regimented process.
The execution of this process sets us apart from our competitors, and ensures that our customers receive the best possible basement development experience.
Our average project takes 8 weeks to complete. Please visit our Basement Process page to learn more about our system.
We take care of all permits on our basement developments, and do not take on any projects without the necessary permits. A typical project will have a Basement Building Permit, Basement Electrical Permit, and a Basement Plumbing Permit.

There are many different things for you to consider before you start your development. Our educational approach ensures that you have had a chance to weigh the pros and cons and make the choices that make the most sense for you!
Do you need a full-time bedroom or just a room for a few guests each year? Do you want space for an office, or room for gym equipment? Our designers will help make sure your basement is set up to best suit your needs.
Subfloors can add warmth to your floor and also have waterproofing properties.
Need a little extra separation of sound?
The last thing you want is a cold basement! Vent placement, cold air returns and additional heating supplies are important considerations.
Don’t underestimate the importance of storage.
Carpet is warm and cozy. Hard surfaces such as laminate and vinyl plank can be easier to clean and have a wide variety of designs. Which is best for you really comes down to your priorities.
Would your basement benefit from a bar or kitchenette?
Many of our clients are surprised to find out that a shower is actually more expensive than a bathtub.
Electric is the least expensive option. Gas is a great option, but it is also the most expensive and can take up room in your space. Bio-flame fireplaces are a great option you may not have considered.
We offer many different options for your basement, from a simple wall conduit for hiding your tv cables.
Our average basement takes 8 weeks to build.
