Basement Finishing

Finish Your Basement In The Way That Suits You

An unfinished basement is a blank slate, an opportunity for you to complete your home in the way the suites your family best. While all homes have bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms and kitchens; the unfinished basement is a place for you to customize it to your unique needs.

Best Basement Finishing Ideas By Our Experts

Our team of designers at Bedrock Basements are experts in turning that blank slate into a functional gym, home theater, living room, in-law suite, hockey rink or whatever else you desire to make of the space.

Finishing a basement is a unique renovation that presents challenges and constraints that do not exist in a regular home renovation.

First, we need to take into account that we are building underground, with concrete walls around the perimeter. Concrete is a fairly porous and brittle material, we need to make sure that before finishing your basement the foundation walls are in good shape and that any cracks or tie rod leaks are properly fixed. We will examine your insulation and provide you with the best options that will work for you based on the age of your home, existing insulation, intended use of space, etc.

Finishing Basement Based on Your Space

Ceiling height of an unfinished basement is often overlooked when planning out a layout. At Bedrock Basements we will take into account the location of your I-beams, ducts, pluming, etc. when designing your basement finishing layout. Interior walls, doors, kitchen cabinets, shower heads and bathroom mirrors usually require the full basement height and ideally are not located underneath any bulkheads.

In Ontario, most homes have their utility fixtures in the basement. The main ones are the furnace, water heater and electrical panel but more and more homes come equipped with HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilation) systems, water filtration and softener systems, humidifiers, etc. As part of your basement design we make sure to pay attention to these utilities and make sure that all appliances are accessible to service or replace. The location of your utility room plays a great role in your basement design as moving these fixtures is usually cost prohibitive. We will design a layout that will work around this constraint taking into account where the new walls and doors will be as well as the noise generated by the appliances.

Our team at Bedrock Basements is highly experienced in dealing with all the code and construction requirements when finishing your basement.

Frequently Asked Questions About Basement Finishing

How much will it cost to finish my basement?

Well, it depends. There are many variables when it comes to pricing out any renovation project. Of course, the size of your basement is one important variable in figuring out pricing but it’s just one part of the equation. Other factors to consider when pricing out a basement are bathrooms, finishes, bars, kitchens, separate entrances, quality of finishes, window cutouts, custom cabinetry, custom millwork, etc etc. On average, an 800sqf basement with a 3 piece bathroom will cost $40,000-$47,000.

Will we see a 3D design for our basement?

Yes. Our designer will provide you with a detailed 3D rendering for you to review before we start any work. We will revise the design as many times as needed until we get it right before we begin construction.

What is your payment plan?

We have a seven payment pay-as-you-go plan. We take a small ($1,000) deposit at contract signing to kick off the design process. All other payments are tied to completion milestones.
