Redefining Basement Renovations

Renovating a basement is more than construction and design. It takes innovation and creativity. Harmony Basements specializes in merging fine detail with exquisite design and structural integrity to achieve stellar results. We use advanced technology to create elaborate virtual tours that allow our clients to see exactly how their new basement will look when it’s complete.

Most contractors are focused on getting the job done as quickly and simply as possible. In their attempt to maximize their profit margins, they often cut corners and shortchange homeowners. Not us. Harmony Basements takes a customer-focused approach to renovation projects and offer comprehensive solutions that keep homeowners at the center.

Crafting Stunning Basements with Care, Precision, and Passion

We start by using advanced technology to create elaborate virtual tours that allow our clients to see exactly how their new basement will look when it’s finished. This not only helps them visualize the end result, but also allows them to make informed decisions about the design and layout of their new space.

Once we have a clear understanding of our client’s vision, we work diligently to offer a variety of design options based on their preferences. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, so we take the time to listen and understand our client’s needs.

WE SIMPLY LOVE BASEMENTS

At Harmony Basements, we believe that a basement should be more than just a storage space or a place to do laundry. It should be an extension of your home and a reflection of your personal style. We’re passionate about helping our clients transform their unfinished or outdated basements into beautiful, functional, and inviting spaces that they can enjoy for years to come.

We’re also committed to quality and integrity in everything we do. We don’t cut corners or use subpar materials to save money. Instead, we only use the highest quality materials and employ skilled craftsmen who take pride in their workmanship. This ensures that every project we complete is not only beautiful but also built to last.

We believe in the transformative power of a well-designed and well-built basement. We’re passionate about helping our clients achieve their vision and creating spaces that they’ll love for years to come.

What Sets Us Apart

Our innovation knows no bounds. We’ve created systems to streamline our processes and curate client-centered solutions. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, we take the time to work closely with our clients to fully understand their vision for their new basement. Then, we work diligently to offer a variety of design options based on their preferences.

From preliminary procedures to post-construction, the Harmony Basements team is there every step of the way, ensuring that no detail is left behind.

How long does it take to finish a basement?

Professionally finishing an average 1,000 sq ft basement takes anywhere from 4 - 8 weeks. This timeframe is to ensure quality over a rushed job. We are here to accommodate our clients’ schedules. We work all year round, including weekends. Typically, it can take even as little as 2 to 4 weeks to transform a dark and dingy basement into a welcoming and stunning space that you will love spending time in. We work effectively, yet cause little to no disruption to your daily household activities.

How much does it cost to finish a basement?

On average, finishing a basement in Toronto can cost anywhere between $40 and $120 per square foot. The cost to finish a basement depends on factors like the size of the basement, the upgrades you want, and how much labour is needed. Every basement is different.

The best way to know how much it costs to finish a basement is to evaluate the basement to decide the amount of work needed. Only then will you have a clear estimate for the basement project.

How much value does a finished basement add to a house?

Finishing a basement not only increases the practicality of your home; it also increases your property's market value significantly. Prospect homebuyers or tenants will appreciate the additional space in a finished basement. This way, you receive a great return on your investment, making basement finishing a worthwhile endeavour.

Do I need a permit to renovate my basement?

Yes, you do need a building permit for a basement renovation when you make alterations to the basement's foundation such as building an additional wall or tearing a wall down. You will also need a building permit to renovate your basement into a legal secondary suite only because it must comply with your city's zoning bylaws.

How much does a building permit cost to obtain?

The cost to obtain a building permit range can range anywhere from approx. $500 - $3000. This depends on the size and complexity of the basement renovation project.

What does your warranty cover?

Harmony Basements ensures that your basement renovation is conducted with expert skill and in line with industry standards. Our warranty includes the quality and performance of materials, guaranteeing they are free from manufacturer's defects. We are also guaranteeing that structural modifications are met with building codes and regulations, providing you with peace of mind.

Is the warranty transferable?

Yes, the warranty is fully transferable to the next homeowner.

Do you subcontract out your work?

We do not subcontract any of our work. We believe your renovation is only as good as the team behind it. That goes from the architect to the builder, to the creatives, to the tradespeople who work hard to bring your vision to fruition. Not subcontracting work means our quality is never compromised.

Is it safe for us to be in the house while the basement is being renovated?

The safety of residing in your home during a basement renovation depends on the specific project and the potential hazards involved. Consult with Harmony Basements to determine the best course of action for ensuring a secure living environment during the renovation.

Can basement renovation be done during the winter?

Rain, snow or shine, we work all year round, including winter.

We are concerned with the growth of mould and mildew in our basement. How will you help prevent this?

While conventional construction materials such as lumber, drywall and fibreglass insulation work great for above-ground construction, these products can rot and cause mould in high-moisture areas like basements. Our mould-repellent products such as Magnesium Oxide Wallboard allow moisture to pass through naturally to prevent mould from growing. The materials we use are top-of-the-class to prevent mould and mildew. Also being fire and waterproof, sound-absorbent and eco-friendly, they are designed for the safest and most comfortable living environment. We use only the best materials – that is the Harmony way.

What type of flooring should I use for my basement?

We highly recommend choosing our handpicked selection of Torlys Luxury Engineered Vinyl Floor for lifetime durability and to withstand environmental factors that typically change the structure of natural hardwood.
