    Basement renovations can vary in complexity, but we aim to deliver beautiful, quality results every time. Whether we’re developing or renovating a previously developed space, we’ll consider everything from the layout and design to the electrical, plumbing, and HVAC and any necessary permits. We can also incorporate features such as custom built-in cabinets, heated flooring, wood or gas fireplaces, or specialty wiring for surround systems and other entertainment needs.

    We love doing basement developments in the GTA because it’s a chance for us to take a completely blank canvas and shape it into something new, fun, beautiful, and useful! Based on your needs and lifestyle, we can transform the space into an art studio, gym, home theatre, or games area, and ensure that it becomes your favourite room in the house.


    With the recognition that each project is unique, Hardhat Reno Guys take an individualized approach to project management. Our primary goal is to ensure successful completion of the addition or renovation project while remaining within the client’s desired budgetary guidelines. We remain hands-on throughout each phase.

    Basement Renovation & Finishing FAQ.

    It does indeed! A renovated basement adds significant value to your property. It will increase your home’s resale value and ensure your property becomes a life-long investment.

    The cost of finishing a basement varies depending on the scope of the project and the size of your basement. Larger basements will be more expensive than smaller ones, and if you’re doing a complete basement finishing, the cost will be higher than if you’re only doing partial work.

    The materials and appliances you use will also affect the total cost. Higher-end materials can drive up the cost of finishing your basement considerably.

    The main types of flooring for basement finishing include:

    • Ceramic tile
    • Engineered wood
    • Rubber flooring
    • Laminate flooring

    What flooring you choose will depend on how you want to use your basement. If you are including a kitchen or bathroom in your finished basement, ceramic tile is a great option because it’s easy to clean and maintain. With our professional basement finishing experts on your side, you can be sure to choose the right flooring for your needs.

    You can supply the materials needed for our contractors to finish your basement, provided they meet the requirements and are of suitable quality. Our team can help you make the right material choices for your project.

    Generally speaking, a professional basement contractor should be able to finish a basement within 4 to 6 weeks, provided there are no significant changes to the plan along the way.

    In general, Ontario law will specify when a permit is needed for a finished basement. In Toronto, you’ll need to get a renovation permit if the job involves:

    • Building a basement entrance
    • Adding a second suite
    • Structural or material alterations
    • Excavating and/or constructing foundations
    • Insulating or modifying heat or plumbing systems
    • Basement underpinning

    You do not need to get a permit in Toronto if you’re not doing structural or material alterations, adding new units, or doing new plumbing installation.

    How to finish a basement.

    Below is a step-by-step guide on how we work to finish your basement.

    Step 1: Basement insulation installation.

    This is the most basic and yet essential step in finishing your basement. It will protect your foundation and prevent the growth of mold and mildew.

    Step 2: Basement wall framing.

    Before any work starts on your basement, we ensure that all wall joists are level and stable.

    Step 3: Basement drywall installation.

    We will hang the drywall seamlessly, ensuring a proper fit around electrical sockets and other tricky areas.

    Step 4: Bathroom floor installation.

    Choose a good quality waterproof material for your basement bathroom flooring. Ceramic tile is a great example. This will prevent moisture buildup and help ensure your basement is mold and mildew free.

    Step 5: Basement ceiling finishing.
