Acadia is great!!! Our project is a bakery in Toronto and Acadia was able to guide our permit process very efficiently. We needed a zoning variance and building permits. They coordinated everything so that there was minimal time between the 2 processes.

The staff are INCREDIBLE!!! All very professional and very good at the work they do. I was panicked at a couple of stages and they took the time to explain what was happening with the project and how it’s progressing.

I would absolutely recommend Acadia, and also an amazing contractor that they sometimes work with, whose name is George – it was a great feeling to see someone so skilled at their work. Max (the owner) was incredibly patient with our questions, but also incredibly skilled at designing both the interior and exterior.

Benefits of Removing a Load Bearing Wall

increase property value with load bearing wall removal

Open Concept and Increased Value

The primary benefit of removing a load-bearing wall is the transformation of a regular home into an open-concept one. Removing a wall to extend the space of a room can make a space much more appealing. This concept is used to upgrade the value of your home and create a more welcoming design for homeowners and guests.

The change can give your home a completely new look and create more space for you and your family. Homeowners all across the GTA have the opportunity to quickly and effectively execute their interior design plans through Acadia DC

Bigger Space

An interesting perk of removing a load-bearing wall is the extra space that comes with it. Have you had the idea of adding more furniture to your home, but could never find the space to put it where you wanted? Open concept gives you an opportunity to move and add furniture. Removing structural walls opens up an enormous amount of space you never even knew you had. The dream living room design you thought you could never achieve can become real! An aesthetic combination of kitchen and dining room can make for an easy transition from room to room.

With load-bearing wall removals, the privacy that the wall used to provide will be gone, but homeowners will then have the opportunity to do anything they want with their new open space. For instance, you can add a beautiful kitchen island to a room that you thought would never fit one! There are endless possibilities once an interior wall removal opens the space up. It gives homeowners the chance to be creative with their own space. Wherever you decide to remove your load-bearing wall, Acadia DC is right by your side in making sure your renovation plans come together.

Easy Access to Rooms/Communication

The fewer walls you need to deal with when navigating your household, the better. The amount of privacy your rooms provide decreases, but the communication across your home increases, as there’s less foot traffic. Say goodbye to having to move from room to room just to talk to someone. This accessibility makes life so much easier with one less wall in your house.

Being able to navigate to your kitchen and dining room while holding heavy platters or dishes is both convenient and safe! Whether it’s just a wall or a door being taken down, as a wall removal company we believe homeowners should be able to navigate and communicate in their own homes without any trouble.

Modernizing Your Home

It’s a given that modern homes stand out. Removing a supporting wall can exceptionally increase the value of your home while adding a modern touch. An open concept room can easily attract the eye of any guest who steps foot into your space. Acadia DC is proud to help homeowners achieve their dream interior.
