Jul 07,2023

Our condo renovation was a very stressful process, but luckily the least stressful part was working with Zeev and Vitalii. We were given a four to six weeks estimate and they completed the renovation in four weeks and two days, which is great and we are very happy with the result.

May 13,2023

It was a really great experience – from the very beginning when we meat Zeev for the first time, and all the way through the end, when we had our handshakes upon the project’s completion. Every aspect of the project, each step in it, every detail, question, requests, suggestion, changes, additions – all was so easy to communicate. Knowledge about condo’s rules, their specifics, readiness to follow each and all of those requirements, friendly chats, help and advise – all that was a norm during the project.
In simple words: a stressless renovation everyone would wish for.

      Basement Renovation in Toronto

      Basement renovation is a great possibility to refresh the house in Toronto and the GTA and improve its functionality. It’s the procedure of converting an unfinished or underused basement into a completely usable and visually appealing place to live in. As experts in all types of reno, including commercial renovation, CSG Renovation aims to optimize the worth of your lower level by creating something that fits your routine, attends to your individual demands, and increases the value to your home. 

      Basement remodeling might require a variety of jobs, including water-proofing, insulation, framing, wiring, plumbing, installing heat and conditioning systems, floor coverings, illumination, plasterboard, painting, and the final touches like storage spaces and furnishings. Every project will have a different intricacy and scale due to the current circumstances, the personal tastes of the owner, and the financial limitations.

      legal basement renovation in Toronto

      CSG Renovation specializes in a range of services that can help execute any new basement renovation project to perfection. Basement is the perfect space to maximize your home’s potential by transforming this underutilized area into a modern basement that will not only become an extension of your home but also a place where you’ll want to spend time.

      And also in our arsenal we have comprehensive home renovation and condo renovation services.

      Finished Basement Renovation Ideas

      It is advantageous for homeowners to make investments in basement renovation in the Toronto area since they not only improve the usability of their property but additionally raise the price tag. Here are some of the basement improvements that CSG Renovation provides:


      An extra bathroom is the first option that comes to mind when it comes to basement renovation Toronto. Having an extra bathroom is by no means a luxury, but a necessity! And with CSG Renovation this will become a reality.

      This is a special kind of renovation that includes many pitfalls that an average person cannot handle: additional waterproofing to prevent leaks, insulation of wiring, proper connection of electrical appliances and ventilation systems.


      Adding a small kitchen in your basement with a refrigerator, work area, and heating area can help you avoid moving back into the main kitchen when you’re doing other things or relaxing in the basement. This is a common feature of most modern basements, and it helps reduce the hassle between floors while adding functionality.


      If your lower level is sitting idle, consider turning the basement into a space for living. It may sound utopian, but by outfitting your basement with all the furniture you need, replacing the wiring, fixing the ventilation, and introducing modern amenities, your guests will feel right at home. The team at our basement reno company has been on the basement renovation market for a long time and has years of experience in renovating many basements into a separate apartment for extra living space in accordance with all building codes.

      We provide our own basement design project on the proper zoning of the space and quality of finishing the basement, so you can be absolutely sure of the legality of such basement apartment renovations.

      HOME GYM

      Renovation of the basement space into a gym or yoga area is gaining popularity, because it allows you to save on expensive subscriptions and make exercise as comfortable as possible. And no, this is not an utopia!

      Creating the perfect personal basement gym is a great investment in yourself, your health and the future of your home in the event of a resale. But despite the seeming ease of the job, this type of remodeling has many considerations that must be taken into account: the ventilation system must be installed and working perfectly, and the flooring must be non-slip and suitable for exercise.


      A finished basement is the perfect use of space and the best place to put an extra pantry for dry non-perishable groceries and storage for your household supplies. Extra cabinets and drawers will help keep your belongings safe but out of sight. If you decide to place a pantry in your basement, we will waterproof and also fully insect-proof your basement.


      A bar in the basement is a great solution for those who like noisy companies where they drink alcohol. We provide adding waterproofing and noise insulation, an excellent flooring, a basement bar counter and a dimmed light, so you can get a great home bar, which will suit the taste of even the most avid bar lover. You can always decorate your bar in accordance with the style of the whole house, leaving only the plumbing and electrical work to the specialists.

      Also, with basement remodels like a house wine cellar, wine enthusiasts can display their preferred collection of reds. Shelving, an adequate ventilation system, plus insulation are required for this.


      Basements are frequently dark rooms, perfect for a movie theater atmosphere or bar. 

      At CSG Renovation, we specialize in maximizing space and increasing the value of your home through carefully planned basement renovations. Imagine transforming your underutilized basement into a cozy basement family room, complete with a stunning basement fireplace for those chillier evenings. Not only this will add a living space for you and your loved ones, but it will also significantly add to the appeal and worth of your property.

      Basement Renovation Cost

      A basic remodel to a full basement refurbishing, regardless if it is for private enjoyment or a legitimate flat for lease, are all areas in which we as a team at CSG Renovation specialize. Knowing the final cost of basement renovation is crucial when planning such a significant restoration job.

      The cost of a basement transformation will fluctuate based on the state of your existing lower level and the caliber of the construction supplies, basement finishes, additional amenities you select, and the labor cost charged by a basement renovation company. Certainly, you have to account for additions like home theater systems, marble fireplaces, and noise insulation if you’re considering them. The typical basement renovation will increase the market value of the property by 7%, making it a fairly prudent financial decision.

      Basement Finishing

      Finishing a basement involves starting from the ground up. There aren’t enough amenities in an empty basement that could render it habitable. Installing drywall, plumbing systems, soundproofing, an approved exit, airflow, and flooring constitutes completing a basement. In simplest terms, laying the groundwork for future redevelopment or renovation is what makes a basement finished.

      Starting a basement finishing involves considering building codes, remodelling rules, and zoning regulations. Working with our experienced CSG Renovation team, we guide you through the basement finishing process step-by-step, offering comprehensive information for a seamless, stress-free experience. If your ceiling doesn’t have enough height, we can handle that too with low ceiling basement renovation.

      Basement Renovation vs. Finishing

      basement finishing in Toronto

      • Basement finishing Toronto primarily entails transforming an incomplete, empty basement into a usable room, which includes undertaking chores like construction, installing soundproofing, and hanging plasterboard.
      • Basement renovation is the creation of additions or modifications to a completed or partially completed lower level, which includes replacing outdated utilities or fixing issues with humidity. In comparison to a finishing job, the extent of labour for renovations is typically smaller.

      Benefits of Finished Basement

      The various advantages of the services of a Toronto basement finishing company simultaneously improve the marketability of the house and enhance the standard living conditions of the residents which makes it a crucial commitment for homeowners. These are four main arguments in favor of completing a basement, each backed up by data and information:

      • Larger living area. Finishing your basement can expand your home’s usable space by up to 50%, allowing for amenities like a home office, gym, or recreational area.
      • Creates an added living area. Fully completing and insulating your basement can reduce household electricity use by up to 20%, saving significant money on utilities.
      • Increased home value. Industry estimates suggest that homeowners can recoup up to 70% of basement remodelling costs upon sale, making it an attractive way to increase the property’s worth per square foot.
      • Improved habitational conditions. Properly insulating your lower level can reduce breathing difficulties and improve indoor conditions for you and your loved ones.


      Basement Underpinning

      A particular construction method called basement underpinning deepens the foundation of a structure, thereby strengthening and stabilizing it. Underpinning is mainly involved with boosting the foundational strength, adding basement height and generating greater headroom, frequently as a preliminary to a large-scale makeover, in contrast to normal renovation, which concentrates on enhancements to the space’s internal visual appeal and usefulness.

      You could be confident that if you engage CSG Renovation to assist you with your basement, we’re going to provide our professional recommendations. We possess sufficient experience in the field to have insight into which methods are effective. The fundamental strategy we choose for finishing a basement in Ontario is determined by the kind of basement, kind of home, and financial constraints.

      Basement Underpinning Types

      basement underpinning in Toronto

      • Conversion of the crawl space. Creating a lower level out of a crawl space is one of the most popular foundation techniques. To do this, we initially excavate an opening beneath the crawl space. Afterward, we build walls to turn the basement into a functional area.
      • Bench footing. Bench footing serves as an additional alternative for basement underpinning. To build a bench across the partition and ground, it is necessary to begin excavating down from an interior wall that is slightly higher than the currently installed foundations.

      Why Hire Professionals for Basement Underpinning in Toronto

      Underpinning a basement includes changing the property’s foundation when renovating a basement, which necessitates a thorough knowledge of foundation construction, regional building regulations, and the state of the ground. And CSG Renovation is the perfect team!

      • Restrictive Rules. The Ontario Building Code stipulates specific requirements for foundation underpinning, including detailed engineering designs, licenses, permits, and assessments, all of which are enforced in Toronto.
      • Soil Diversity. The GTA’s diverse soil types, including sandy loam, clay, and muddy clay, affect the underpinning process and necessitate professional expertise.
      • Insurance. Experienced builders provide liability insurance covering up in damages, protecting homeowners from potential mishaps or damages during the underpinning process.
      • Improved Foundation Depth. Underpinning can deepen the foundation by over three feet, providing extra headroom and strengthening the basement structure. Specialized expertise is crucial to ensure this is done safely and risk-free.

      Legal Basements

      To be considered a secure and authorized place to reside, a basement in Toronto must have been constructed following local building laws and guidelines, like having a basement walkout. A legal basement is fundamentally different from a conventional basement in that it complies with all risk, fundamental, and zoning regulations to ensure the welfare of its residents and preserve the intrinsic worth of the home.

We manage every aspect of the basement renovation, from ideation to realization, tailoring our services to each unique home, ensuring stunning transformations, even if you need a basement apartment renovation.

      For more details about our capabilities and services, contact us at (647) 428-0007 today.

      Legal Basements Requirements

      • Standard Ceiling Height. Toronto’s government requires a minimum floor-to-ceiling height of 6 ft. 5 in. (1.95m) for existing finished basements, and 6 ft. 11 in. (2.1m) for new or significantly altered structures, ensuring adequate headroom and comfort.
      • Egress Window. An egress window or door, meeting Toronto’s requirement of 3.8 square footage with no dimension smaller than 15″, is required for legal basements within Toronto
      • Ventilation. Maintaining good indoor air quality and preventing humidity and mold issues requires proper ventilation. Basements should either have windows covering at least 5% of the floor area or air conditioning through vents.

      • Electrical and Plumbing. All plumbing and electrical work must comply with the Ontario Building Code and Electrical Safety Authority, including using appropriate electrical fixtures, thorough waterproofing, and GFCI outlets near water sources.

      Frequently asked question and all you want to know!
      Do I need a permit to finish my basement?

      Yes, in Toronto, you typically need a permit to finish a basement, especially if you’re changing the structure, altering the plumbing or electrical system. We assist our clients in understanding and acquiring the necessary permits.

      When should you not finish a basement?

      You might want to reconsider finishing a basement if there are serious structural issues, excessive moisture problems, or if the basement regularly floods. We can help you identify these problems and provide a professional assessment of the feasibility of your renovation.

      How can homeowners prepare for basement renovation?

      Homeowners can prepare by clearing out the basement, making decisions about the design and function of the space, setting a realistic budget, and being prepared for some disruption while we renovate your basement.

      Will ensuring renovation done safely and according to local building codes?

      Absolutely. At CSG Renovation, we prioritize safety and always ensure our renovations comply with local building codes. It’s crucial for maintaining a safe environment and preserving the long-term value of the remodeling.

      Is it cheaper to complete the basement or add a second story?

      It’s generally cheaper to finish a basement than to add a second story because there are fewer structural changes needed. Adding a second story involves altering the home’s foundation and structure, which results in significant costs comparable to those of creating a new basement.

      What are unexpected issues during basement renovation?

      Unexpected issues can include the discovery of mold, pests, or structural damage that wasn’t apparent until the renovation began. Plumbing or electrical issues can also arise if these systems are outdated or improperly installed.

      Are design services offered or is a separate designer required for basement renovation?

      We offer comprehensive services, including basement design. Our experienced team of designers can work closely with you to ensure that the final result matches your vision and needs. However, if you prefer to hire a separate designer, we’re flexible and ready to collaborate.

      What about protecting the rest of the home during renovation process?

      We’re committed to minimizing disruption and damage to the rest of your home. This includes using dust barriers, protecting floors, cleaning up our work area at the end of each day, and carefully scheduling work to minimize noise and disturbance.

      Are maintenance or follow-up services offered after renovation process is complete?

      Yes, at CSG Renovation we stand by our work. We offer maintenance and follow-up services to ensure that you are fully satisfied with the outcome and that the renovation holds up over time.

      What type of insulation is used in basements and what is its impact on energy efficiency?

      We typically use spray foam or rigid foam board insulation in basements, as it provides superior moisture control and thermal resistance. Good insulation reduces energy costs by preventing heat loss in winter and keeping the basement cool in summer.

      How do you ensure that all renovation is completed within budget and on time?

      We have rigorous project management processes in place. This includes detailed planning, budgeting, and scheduling before work begins. We then monitor the project closely, communicating with you regularly to ensure that we stay on track.

      What are the challenges of repairing basements in older homes?

      Older homes can present challenges such as outdated electrical and plumbing systems, structural issues, and possible presence of hazardous materials like asbestos. Our team is experienced in dealing with these issues and we take all necessary precautions during the renovation process.

      What safety precautions are taken during a renovation residence?

      At CSG Renovation, we prioritize safety above all. This includes using personal protective equipment, ensuring safe use of tools and equipment, adhering to local building codes, and maintaining a clean work site to prevent accidents.

      Yes, in Toronto, you typically need a permit to finish a basement, especially if you’re changing the structure, altering the plumbing or electrical system. We assist our clients in understanding and acquiring the necessary permits.
