What Type of Basement Renovation Fits the Basement 2.0 Solution?

Every basement renovation is unique. So the Basement 2.0 Solution is designed with this in mind. While we have a template for the solution, we draw specific plans for each renovation using the feedback we gather in the initial consultation. We also have dedicated project managers who you can call on for guidance when you run into challenges.

Your basement could simply be unfinished, or it may not be in a habitable state because of leaky plumbing and other poor waterproofing issues. In other cases, the challenge you are dealing with could be inconveniently positioned posts, beams that hang too low, or other design flaws.

We know this because virtually every basement renovation presents unique challenges. It is this experience we use to develop distinctive plans for each Basement 2.0 renovation.

Here is the specific process for the Basement 2.0 renovation:

Basement 2.0 Solution Process

After the initial consultation, we believe you will have everything you need to start the renovation. While some projects may follow slightly different milestones, the following typically apply.


In very few cases, basements tend to have cracks in the foundation and the perimeter walls. If that's the case, we will take care of all waterproofing that needs to be done prior to starting your basement renovation project.


We recommend using commercial-grade steel framing throughout your basement. We use furring channels on the ceilings for high-level soundproofing. Insulation creates an air seal in your basement that prevents heat loss and lowers your heating costs.


We are meticulous when it comes to framing your bulkheads for aesthetic appeal. We want to make sure your walls are framed securely before the plumbing rough-ins and drywall installation are completed.


Our plumbers will do all the plumbing rough-ins including the three-piece washroom (toilet, vanity, and shower/tub), as well as wet bar/kitchen plumbing rough-ins. All of our plumbers are licensed professionals.

Electrical fittings

Before you install all the utilities that run on electrical power, like the HVAC, lighting, and entertainment systems, you will need to check whether all the wiring meets the regulations set by the Electrical Standards Authority of the Province of Ontario.
Our master electrician will run all the switches, outlets, pot lights and any other electrical fixtures/fittings that may be needed for the basement. Upon completion, you will receive the ESA certificate.

What Do You Need To Do?

Here is what you will need to do yourself:
  • priming and painting,
  • flooring,
  • bathroom finishings,
  • trim, carpentry and door installations.

Your comfort and safety are very important to us. As such, the Basement 2.0 Solution prioritizes your basement’s structural integrity over any aesthetic considerations. We will advise and help you arrange the ESA evaluation.

If you intend to rent out the basement as a secondary accommodation, the law requires there to be a second form of egress. You will be glad to know that we have specialzed skills in window and door installeration in Toronto.

As part of the Basement 2.0 Solution, we can advise on window and door selection and placement, giving you the best chances of creating the most comfortable, livable basement space.
