Everything You Need to Know About Your Basement Renovations

The timeline for a basement renovation project in Toronto can vary depending on the complexity and scope of work. Generally, a standard basement renovation takes about 8-12 weeks from start to finish. This includes initial consultation and planning (1-2 weeks), design and customization (2-3 weeks), construction and installation (4-6 weeks), and final touches and walkthrough (1 week). Factors such as obtaining permits, the extent of structural changes, and custom features can extend this timeline.

Renovated basements are incredibly versatile and can be tailored to suit various needs. Popular uses include creating additional living space such as a family room or guest suite, setting up a home office, establishing a home gym, building a recreational area with a home theater or game room, or adding rental income potential with a basement apartment. The key is to design the space to align with your lifestyle and future plans.

Yes, obtaining permits is typically required for basement renovations, especially if the project involves structural changes, electrical or plumbing work, or adding new rooms. The specific permits needed can vary by location, but generally include building permits, electrical permits, and plumbing permits. Working with a professional renovation company like 1BENMU ensures that all necessary permits are acquired and that the renovation complies with local building codes and regulations.

Basements require flooring that can withstand moisture and temperature fluctuations. The best options include vinyl plank flooring, which is water-resistant and durable; ceramic or porcelain tiles, which are impervious to moisture; and engineered hardwood, which offers the look of wood with better moisture resistance. Carpet tiles are also a popular choice for creating a cozy atmosphere and can be easily replaced if damaged.

Our custom built-ins are designed to meet your specific storage and functional needs. Options include entertainment centers, home office workstations, wet bars, wine cellars, bookcases, and shelving units. We use advanced CNC machinery to ensure precision and quality in every piece. Our design team works closely with you to ensure the built-ins match your style and optimize space usage.
