Warranty & Quality

We stand by our work. That’s why we offer a five-year warranty on our basement finishing services. We are committed to fixing any issues that may arise during the warranty period, ensuring your peace of mind.



Consultation and Design:

Our process starts with an in-depth consultation to understand your needs and vision for the basement space. Based on this understanding, we’ll work with you to design the perfect layout that maximizes the utility and aesthetic appeal of your basement.


Permits and Approvals:

As an established basement finishing contractor, we handle all aspects of permits and approvals required for the renovation. We ensure that all work complies with local building codes and regulations, providing you with peace of mind.


Preparation and Framing:

Next, we prepare the basement for renovation. This involves cleaning, waterproofing if necessary, and performing any needed repairs. Once the basement is ready, we frame the walls and install necessary infrastructure like plumbing and electrical systems.


Insulation and Drywall:

Proper insulation is crucial for maintaining a comfortable temperature in your basement and for energy efficiency. After insulation, we install drywall, creating the walls and ceilings of your new rooms.


Finishing Touches:

This is where your basement truly begins to take shape. We install flooring, paint walls, put in fixtures, and complete any other finishing work based on the chosen design. This could include installing a kitchenette, setting up a home theater system, or customizing a workout area. Once all the work is complete, we conduct a thorough cleanup of the site and perform a final inspection.


Design and Planning:

The initial phase involves consultation, design, and planning. The length of this phase can vary based on how quickly decisions are made regarding design elements and any necessary adjustments to the plan.


Permit Approval:

Depending on the extent of the work, some projects may require permits from local authorities. The time it takes to secure these permits can vary and is often beyond our control. However, we’ll handle this process on your behalf to ensure all work is compliant with local codes and regulations.


Construction Work:

This is the main phase of the project where the actual basement finishing happens. The duration of this phase can vary depending on the complexity of the work, the size of the basement, and the specific finishes chosen. On average, for an 800 sq. ft. basement, this phase may take around 6-8 weeks after underpinning is completed.



Throughout the construction process and upon completion, inspections may be required to ensure all work is up to code. The time required for these inspections can influence the overall timeline.


Unforeseen Challenges:

During construction, unforeseen issues may arise, such as hidden water damage or structural issues. While we strive to anticipate any potential issues during the planning phase, some challenges may only become apparent once construction begins. These could potentially extend the timeline.
