New Basement Completion

I chose Finished Basements after interviewing 6 contractors because the owner was very professional, his price was competitive, the company has been in the business for over 20 years, and John (the owner) made me feel comfortable.

John kept me updated every step along the way and ensured I was satisfied. The quality of the work was outstanding plus they finished on time. John even went over and beyond to redo the countertop and bar shelves when I was not happy with the installation. I'll definitely recommend Finished Basements!

Dream basement reno

We hire John and his team after interviewing 6 basement renovation companies and we couldn’t be more thrilled with our choice. John stood out as an honest craftsman at a competitive rate, and we couldn’t be more pleased that he delivered on the vast scope of work, on time, on budget, and with quality material and workmanship. John was our go-to for everything, from design, to bringing us samples rather than us having to shop around at multiple suppliers during covid. He was onsite practically everyday, and was always responsive to any questions, or complexities that needed to be addressed. He was the master coordinator of all tradespple, and there wasn’t a single day during this project that our home was sitting idle. Everyone that came through our home was very respectful of our property which was much appreciated. The quality of the workmanship speaks for itself, and final outcome is incredible. We did a complete gut to our foundation, including new floors and subfloor, soundproof, as well as installing custom kitchenette, 2 custom office areas, gym and sauna area, bathroom, laundry room, new gas line and fireplace, wall in closets, back door and stairs. Without a doubt we would absolutely recommend John and his team to everyone in need to renovate their home, and we plan to use John for our next reno project.

New basement apartment

We had our basement made into a basement apartment by Finishedbasements.ca
The job went smooth. John was very helpful and knowledgeable. His workers showed up everyday as promised. We are happy with the finished product and would gladly recommend him to anyone looking for building or renovations.

Basement Renovation

This is the second time we've used Finished Basements to renovate parts of our home. 5 years ago we installed a gorgeous double-sided stone fireplace between our main floor kitchen and family room. This year, we decided to renovate our 1,000 sq ft basement. We did our research and got quotes from multiple companies. Right away, John and his team stood out - especially during COVID - competitive quote, attention to detail, responsive and always professional. Their expertise gives you complete peace of mind. John and his team worked incredibly hard, maintained a solid schedule, kept us informed daily of progress and came in on budget and under time. An incredible experience. First rate crew, professional and skilled. My favourite part is the flexibility John and his team showed us daily. They always had time for talk, design and construction suggestions and we did make some changes on the fly and the Finished Basements team delivered. No easy job - gutted original basement to studs, removed load bearing wall... installed new custom kitchen, bath, laundry, fitness, pantry, and storage rooms, + new floor with all the lighting and trimmings you'd expect from a modern renovation company. Our best compliment received so far - "I can't believe this is your basement, what an incredible renovation." Thanks Finished Basements!

Even better than the first basement we did with them!

This was our second time hiring Finishedbasements.ca (CBG Homes Inc.) to build a finished basement for us, and they did even better this time than last time! (2018 was the first one).

We got a full galley kitchen, 3 piece bathroom, storage, sitting area and 2 full bedrooms into 1100 SF. We also added significant upgrades as well - in case anyone is wondering about the project cost.

They were professional, on time, and as you will see from the pictures Class A Builders. We really enjoyed working with them and would hire them a third time without hesitation.

Their expertise got us a great design to

Basement Reno

We decided to go with John for our basement reno and were pleased with how quickly his team could start. The demo was quick, clean and John ensured there was nothing coming into the upstairs area by properly sealing off the basement entrance. His team were courteous, always on time and professional. John was on-site almost everyday to make sure the work was going smoothly, which gave us peace of mind. We were so happy to be able to have a finished basement just in time for the holidays and it’s the perfect place for our son to play as he grows up.

Basement, bathroom and kitchen

John and his crew were fantastic from start to finish of our Reno. We had our kitchen, bathroom and basement renovated. The workers were friendly, organized and cleaned up continuously through out the day. John was on site consistently to make sure things were running smoothly and to answers any questions we had. We will definitely have John back for any future projects.
If your looking for quality workmanship, honestly, projects done on time Then you are in good hands with John and his company.

Basement finishing project

We had our basement completed approximately a week ago. John and his team were very professional, trustworthy and easy to work with. We had a few customized requests that were easily accommodated. We were always presented with a wide range of options and suggestions to facilitate the tedious decision making process.

My husband and I pay very close attention to detail, John was always readily available and open to feedback and ensured that any questions or concerns that we had were addressed immediately. We are very pleased with the workmanship, efficiency and the quality of work presented by John and his team. The team helped bring our vision to life and we absolutely love our newly finished basement!
