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.

      The Challenges of Low Ceiling Basements

      Low-ceiling basements come with their fair share of challenges. As a homeowner with a low ceiling basement, you may face several problems such as the following:

      • Feeling Cramped: A low ceiling can make the basement feel cramped due to insufficient natural lighting, ventilation and storage space. To avoid feeling cramped we create a more open and spacious space by using light colours on the wall and ceiling and also offer storage solutions that help avoid cluttering the space.
      • Lack of Natural Light: Low ceiling basements can feel dark due to small or lack of windows. At CSG Renovation we offer installation of larger windows and artificial lighting to curb this issue and brighten your space.

      • Difficulty in Utilizing the Space Effectively: A low ceiling can limit the types of activities that can be done in a basement. For instance, installing large recreational equipment like a pool table may only be possible if the ceiling is high enough. To overcome this challenge we install built-in storage and advise using multifunctional furniture to maximize the available space.
      • Moisture and Leaks: Moisture and leaks can cause damage to the ceiling. Thus, we ensure we check for moisture and leaks before carrying on with any low ceiling basement renovation.

      However, when planning for a low ceiling basement renovation it is important to consider Toronto building codes and regulations. Whether it is basement heating, basement flooring, small basement remodel in Toronto or basement waterproofing, you must adhere to the basement building codes and basement underpinning regulations in Toronto to avoid issues in the future.

Restructuring on the other hand, simply means changing the fundamental structure of the basement ceiling to improve its effectiveness and increase its height. And don’t forget the basement walkout if you’re planning a legal basement apartment and basement apartment renovation.

From floor lamps and recessed lighting to coloured bulbs and flush mount fixtures, our lighting solutions are designed to make your space more warm and welcoming. For example, recessed lighting does not take up vertical space hence an excellent option for low ceiling basements.

      What to Do With Floor Drains When Finishing Basement

      Since basements are below the ground, they’re more prone to taking water than other parts of the house. Floor drains in a basement steer water into the sewage system, preventing flooding. But these fixtures aren’t very visually appealing.
