Opened up the main floor of a century old home

We opened up the main flooor by removing a wall to create an open concept space.

Joseph and the staff were fast, knowledgeable and honest.

They did the job for a fraction of what others quoted and had it done in no time.

Happy with our finished basement

We hired OnlyBasements to underpin and finish our basement to increase our ceiling height from 6’ to 8’ and of course now have more space including guest bedroom with an ensuite as well as a recreational area with a bar for out weekends gatherings. There were some extra work that wasn’t in our original plan mainly because we live in an older home and needed to upgrade some electrical and plumbing. I must add our project manager Joseph resolved and handled the unexpected work proactively to keep our renovation on budget. We are extremely happy with the end result and that we finally have a space for family and friends to stay when they come to visit us in Toronto for the holidays. Thank you again to everyone at OnlyBasements! We will definitely be recommending your team to anyone looking to do a major basement renovation.

Basement Renovation

Hands down OnlyBasments is the only company anyone looking to renovate their basements needs to call. My wife Tiffany and unnoticed the difference in the quality of this company from the very beginning stages of our reno. We found, and contacted OnlyBasements and two other companies through Homestars. These guys are the only ones out of the three who responded immediately and could meet with us in the same week. Not only did find their team very knowledgable about what we needed to happen for our project, but they were also able to offer us a quote that ended up being extremely accurate. In addition to that OnlyBasements offered us a payment schedule which made everything much easier for our family. We waited two week to do our diligence and hear back from a couple other companies, we waited another week to even get a quote back, which all came back much higher than what OnlyBasements gave us. So, with no surprise they were the team we chose to hire. Thanks to Tony their engineer, we got all the drawings and permits together in a timely manner and the team could start our basement preparation before the permits came through! Thanks to OnlyBasements management skills our experience was nothing short of amazing. OnlyBasements involved us in each step of the project and ensured that their entire crew was doing their job to the highest of quality. Thanks again OnlyBasements you no idea how much we appreciate your work. We will be referring you to all our friends and family. Best of luck to you in the future!

Basement in The Beach

My wife and I hired OnlyBasements to finish the basement of our home in the Beaches. We’d been considering it for a couple of years but started seriously investigating options 6 months ago. The level of design, quality of work, and competitive quote made our decision a no brainer. We were nervous about handing our basement over to a company we hadn’t worked with before, but we’re ecstatic that we did.

We were especially appreciative of the payment plan provided by the company - we made payments after each inspection was done - the work team was clean and efficient. They kept to the planned schedule, and we felt that our PM Joseph was communicative and accommodating every step of the way. The end result is gorgeous, we love it - we have much more room for our family, and we’re surprised how much time we spend in the new space!

My NEW BASEMENT!!

We had our entire basement done with Only Basements and boy is it ever something. Words can't describe the job done on it! To make a long story short, We needed underpinning, along with waterproofing, changing all under ground plumbing, and a separate entrance at the side of my house leading to the basement. They arranged a meeting at our house and provided us with a very detailed quote about the scope of work to be performed and payment options/plans. I was really surprised at the flexibility of payments and happy with the smaller sum staggered payment structure. As they had a good reputation, and prices being slightly lower than the competitors, and the payment plan was suited to my taste, We decided to sign the papers with them between the 4 other quote we received. The process went smoothly and as planned. The workers were friendly and decent people, and our project manager Joseph was a terrific guy! All contractually obligated tasks were accomplished and they went above and beyond by completing the project well ahead of the estimated time frame. We had no issues whatsoever throughout the process and the new space looks so wonderful that I felt the least I could do is to recommend all of you readers to go ahead and give Only Basements . They've certainly got my vote!!
