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.

We are a team of qualified renovation professionals with 10-plus years of experience refurbishing living spaces and improving curb appeal with our stunning concrete work in the Greater Toronto Area, Ontario.

      If you’re planning to sell your house, it’s best to invest in basement walkout in Toronto, basement renovation works, repair services, and underpinning projects to maximize the value of your place. You can install a separate basement entrance to get the best out of your home.

      Even if you’re not selling or renting, basement renovation is a smart investment. Your home will be more comfortable than ever.

      Since a walkout basement is a major addition to your home, our crew will begin with drawings, then move on to figuring out the depth, acquiring materials, assimilating it in with the rest of the house, ensuring proper drainage, and so on. If necessary, we will schedule a low ceiling basement renovation as well.

      Benefits of Adding a Basement Separate Entrance in Toronto

      Basements are perhaps the least imaginative of all spaces, but investing in a new basement and floor drain can make all the difference if you are planning a basement apartment renovation for a legal basement apartment.

      Here are some of the most notable benefits of basement finishing:

      You Can Light Up Your Basement Naturally

      Your basement is perhaps the last place you’d go for some natural sunlight, but this can change. If your architect puts in a sizeable side window, your basement will light up as soon as it dawns. You can even order a basement door made up of glass.

      More Than One Pathways

      Your basement walkout Toronto will also give you a second exit/entrance so you never have to walk around the premises to access your backyard. Your basement door can even lead to your outdoor patio if you want and that’s a rare luxury!

      The Perfect Chance To Fix Your Basement Issues

      Most basement-related issues and foundation or footing problems go unnoticed until it’s too late. Well, that’s because people rarely visit their basements, and if they do, they don’t hang around. Fret not, we’ll take care of all possible issues and strengthen your foundation to make it last longer. 

      Boost Your Home’s Value

      Naturally, any renovation will boost the value of your house and this will factor in when you’re selling it. With a basement walkout, you can expand the depth and width of your space while making it more functional. On average, houses with walkout basements are valued at $75,000 more (at least) than other identical properties that lack them.

      Better Rental Deal

      Want to rent out part of your home because you need the extra income but don’t have another property at hand? You can set up a legal separate space with a second basement entrance! Couple this with a better drainage system and you’ve got the perfect rental deal.

      Or you can use that separate space for some other purpose.

      Either way, it is a win-win!

      What Affects the Average Toronto Basement Walkout Cost?

      There is no one-fit-all for the cost of installing a basement walkout in GTA (the Greater Toronto Area); it all depends on the specifics of your project.

      Here are some of the factors that influence the cost of a walkout landing:

      • The deeper your home, the more it will cost you to install a basement underpin.
      • How easily accessible your basement is will also contribute to the cost; before we install a separate walkout, we have to excavate (or dig manually) the site.
      • The sizes of the basement door and staircase will also contribute to the cost of installation.

      • Reinforcing the foundation wall (and the extent of it) and installing a concrete wall for your basement will also add to the cost of your walkout basement.
      • You also need a drainage system for your walkout basement and make it waterproof; if the drainage installation is very complex, this will further stretch the cost.

      Rest assured, at CSG Renovation, we never overcharge for our services.

      You can reach out to us with details of your project at (647) 428-0007, and we’ll give you a free and transparent quote as well as advise on the basement renovation financing.

      How Does Our Basement Walkout in Toronto Process Work?

      While installing a walkout basement may seem simple in theory, in reality, it is a complex process. Not to worry though! CSG Renovation is a dedicated walkout basement construction and renovation team that takes care of quality and professionalism at every step of the process:

      • Getting The Necessary Permits: First things first, our Toronto basement renovation team will help you submit all the necessary paperwork to get your building permit.
      • Layout Sketch & Excavation: Next, we’ll sketch out the layout and begin excavating the site for the basement floor while taking care of previously installed gas lines, plumbing pipes, and so on.
      • Footings & Foundation Walls: After this, we’ll begin strengthening the foundation with new and strong footings. That’s not all though, before we build a basement, we also build foundation walls from bottom to top.

      • Cinder Block Construction VS. Poured Concrete: Next up in building basement walkout in Toronto, we start building the rest of the structure. We prefer cinder block basement walkout construction which is simpler and offers unparalleled durability.
      • Installing The Basement Walkout Door: After basement lowering and cinder block construction, we cut out an opening for installing the basement walkout door with steel lintels.
      • Staircase Construction: The finished basement now has to be tied in with the concrete access staircase (designed according to the Ontario Building Code). We also ensure perfect smoothness, and since you’re not supposed to walk on these stairs for 2 to 3 days, we tape off the area.
      • Waterproofing & Drainage: The most important aspect of the construction of basement is waterproofing the new walls with premium hydrophobic products, weeping tiles, proper drainage, and connecting the storm drain with sump pumps.
      • Soil Backfill: Once we’re done with the construction of the basement apartment, we fill back the soil excavated initially.
      • Ensuring The Perfect Finish: We’re not done just yet! We’ll ensure a smooth finish for the whole installation, clean the entire work area, and make it ready for use.

      Frequently asked question and all you want to know!
      What is a basement walkout?

      This is a basement that has its own separate entrance, independent of the main house.

      Basement walkout is one of the prerequisites to make a legal apartment in your house. It is for this purpose that we are approached for our service.

      Do I need a permit to add a basement walkout in Ontario?

      Yes, you will need a permit for this type of basement renovation. Depending on the specific location in Ontario and local regulations, the requirements for permits may differ.

      How much does it cost to add an exterior basement entrance in Toronto?

      The average cost ranges from $5,000 to $15,000.

      Remember that starting conditions in all projects are different, as well as final expectations, so contact our managers at (647) 428-0007 to calculate the exact cost for your basement walkout.

      What is the difference between a basement and a walkout basement?

      The walkout basement, unlike the basement, has its own separate exit. This means that it is independent of the main house and meets the criteria for a legal basement apartment.

      What are the disadvantages of a walkout basement?

      The key disadvantages can be considered to be the following:

      1. Potential increase in taxes because walkout basement increases the overall assessed value of your home.
      2. Potential problems with high humidity, which may require a dehumidifier in addition to basement waterproofing.
      3. Insufficient natural light, according to some residents.
      What level is a walkout basement in Toronto?

      A walkout basement is a basement with an exit at ground level. If your site does not have a natural slope, you can artificially deepen it at the entrance level by using retaining walls.

      Can you turn a basement into a walkout basement?

      Yes, we provide this service and can add a basement entrance if at least one wall has enough room for an opening. We will also deepen the entrance by digging if required.

      This is a basement that has its own separate entrance, independent of the main house.
