Our Basement Services

Layout Design

We provide all clients with a basement layout design. If you are unsure of how you want your space designed, we can provide multiple layout options for you to choose from.

Building Permits

We encourage all clients to obtain a building permit. With a building permit, all work is inspected by city officials from the building department. A building permit will also add value should you ever decide to sell your home.

We will obtain the building permit for you, so there is no need to hire an outside design company.

Foundation Crack Repair

Foundation cracks can occur once a house “settles” and can lead to water penetration. We offer polyurethane crack injections to permanently seal any foundation cracks and to protect your basement from future water damage.

Sump Pump Installation

Sump pumps are used where basement flooding happens regularly and to solve dampness where the water table is above the foundation of a home. If you have experienced any of these issues and don’t have a sump pump, we will assess your basement and recommend whether a sump pump should be installed.

Window Replacement

Older homes can have drafty windows that are not energy efficient. We can replace old basement windows with new Energy Star rated windows to keep your basement warm in the winter and help with energy efficiency.

Egress Window Enlargement

Are you looking to add a bedroom to your basement? If so, you are required by the Ontario Building Code to have an egress exit in case of a fire emergency.

We can enlarge any existing window to an egress window to comply with the Ontario Building Code.

Subfloor Installation

When warm, moist air from your home connects with the cold concrete floor in your basement, dampness can be created which allows cold to penetrate through your flooring.

With an insulated basement subfloor, you’re adding panels to create a layer between the concrete and your floors. This not only stops the cold but helps stop moisture from building up, which can produce mould and lead to costly repairs.

We offer a variety of subfloor options, including Dricore, to create warmth and protect your basement from moisture.


Framing a basement is not the same as framing a main floor of a house. Basements have tons of duct work, and bulkheads need to be carefully thought out to increase the overall aesthetic of the basement.

While it is up to you on how you would like your basement finished, as basement professionals we will provide advice on what will look best to minimize unsightly duct work.


Insulation is one of the most important parts of your basement. Not only does it affect the temperature of your basement, it also affects the energy efficiency of your home. We will discuss the differences and benefits of each and select the one that best suits your needs.


Drywall and plastering are crucial to the overall finish of your basement. Improper installation and poor plastering are what lead to noticeable imperfections on your walls, which become visible after painting.

As professionals, we ensure all walls are smooth and no seams are visible, which leaves you with the finish you should expect when you choose us for your project.


Our licensed electricians obtain permits from the Electrical Safety Authority for every basement. All work is inspected and you will receive an ESA certificate for your records.

Electrical panel upgrades are also available.


It is up to you whether you would like to match your basement doors to the rest of your home or to try something new. Custom options are available including glass.

If you are looking for Barn Doors or Loft Doors, we work with Loft Doors, located in Burlington. Loft Doors offers both premade and custom options.


The quality of paint will make a difference to the overall finish of your basement. We exclusively use Benjamin Moore premium paint for the best results.


We offer a wide selection of laminate and vinyl flooring. Laminate and vinyl are both extremely durable. The main difference is vinyl is 100% waterproof. If you are adding a gym, we can also install rubber gym flooring for protection from heavy equipment.


We supply and install both Gas and Electric Fireplaces from Napoleon Fireplaces, a Canadian Company.

To turn your fireplace into a feature wall, we offer a variety of options including tile, vaneer stone, mantels, and shiplap.


We provide a wide selection of cabinetry options in every possible style, including custom-made for kitchens, bars, entertainment units and more.

Custom Glass

Our custom glass options include shower glass, glass walls and mirror walls for your gym.

Theatre Rooms

If you are looking to turn your basement into the ultimate entertainment space, we offer full service theatre room installation. This includes projector screens, AV wiring, speakers, acoustic walls, fabric walls, starlight ceilings, and seating.

Steam Showers

We offer full steam shower systems and installation. If you love the steam room at the gym, imagine how much you will love one in your own home.
