If you ever feel like your cramped in your current home, you’re totally not alone.

As a family man and a busy business owner, I know that space is important to create a happy family home!

Every day, I help clients avoid some of the common mistakes when planning a basement renovation….. Using an experienced Basement Builder could save you thousands of dollars and avoid heartache and frustration.

…But what’s really amazing is how a basement renovation will dramatically increase the value of your home (even when compared to raising the roof).

One of the most common questions I get asked, how much will it cost me to finish my basement? So I created this simple and fast calculator.


You can get an instant price estimate based on a number of criteria:


When it comes to having a dream wine cellar, a home office or perhaps the perfect play area for the kids, scheduling a FREE consultation could save you thousands of dollars and be more efficient than going ‘solo’ and employing unskilled, inexperienced basement renovators.

I think you’ll be pleased to learn that basement renovations, done well, will definitely add value. Here are some comments from outside sources on whether basement renovations are a good thing. 1.       Monetary Value According to an article 10 Things To Finishing  A Basement  in Better Homes and Gardens Magazine, a quality finished basement adds value to the home at resale as compared to a home without. 2.       Aesthetic Value Depending on the renovation, extra bedrooms, storage or entertainment areas can be an advantage. It could mean a saving for adult child or even parent not having to find rented accommodation outside. Not having to pay storage fees could mean more money in a customer’s pocket. Now that’s value. 3.       Designer Value No more ugly under floor boards. A nice ceiling with attractive lights makes a basement feel cozy and homely. 4.       Rental Income Depending on your local government rules, there might be an opportunity to either permanently rent out the basement which has been renovated as a self-contained apartment or join the Airbnb army and collect some holiday income. Typically renovators are dong basement renovations in Toronto to fulfill their own needs and not as a project to make money. But tastefully done, you could expect to sell your home for a higher price than a similar home without a renovated basement.
