Basement Renovations in Oakville, Mississauga and Burlington

Renovating the basement of a residential house adds form and function to the entire property.  With modern materials, expert designs and effective building techniques, homeowners can finally develop their overlooked subterranean region to make more bedrooms, offices, playrooms, workout rooms and home entertainment theatres in which to entertain guests. Basement renovations are one of Eastview Homes' core specialties. Our experienced architects, designers and tradespeople can help seize that space and transform it into a favourite place for the entire family.

Regardless of the size or layout of their house, many homeowners frequently face challenges with their basements. People say, 'there's not enough space down there to do anything,' or people believe it's too dark, or too cold, or not accessible enough to be habitable. They request an extra bedroom, or a home office, or even just a dry storage space without really seeing the bigger picture. When it comes to improving unfinished basements, most people don't typically see the potential for a full renovation. They don't understand the benefits of a complete redesign which hides furnaces and pumps and adds light and warmth and yields space they never thought possible. If you seek additional living rooms, or wish to build some amenities in your unfinished nether regions, Eastview can help you create a productive new living space. Basements are excellent places to store seasonal amenities, wine cellars and guest bedrooms. Let's consider a complete in–law suite with its own bathroom and kitchen.

There are two types of noise; sound which travels through the air, and vibrational noise such as what's heard when people walk in heels on the floor overhead. Good soundproofing can reduce airborne and percussive noises.

Eastview Homes basement refinishing service begins when our construction manager and property owner take their first tour around house. Our expert's keen eyes hunt for cracks, peeled paint and water damage as they scour the foundation and discuss the feasibility of design changes. We look for obvious problems like leaking basement walls, discoloration and drywall that's gone damp and now carries mold.  We also check for leaky basement windows and assess the integrity of load bearing beams and supports.

This note is just a small thank you in comparison to the job you did for us in our newly renovated home. We are so pleased with the quality of your work and that it was done in the scheduled time frame.

From the very beginning of our renovation experience with Eastview Homes, the communication was great! It was very reassuring to know that Keith was there to answer any of our questions. Keith worked hard with us to find the best cost effective solutions, and made sure we were promptly updated with any changes.


I have worked with Keith over the past several years on numerous homes and additions, but never on my own home. As an architect, attention to detail is paramount. We contracted Eastview Homes to build a rear addition and kitchen to replicate the existing Arts and Crafts era character of the original house. The work was executed remarkably well in a timely fashion.

Rerouting laundry into the basement to expand the mudroom in the garage entry. Keith's team is stellar, everyone was very friendly and professional. They made me feel very comfortable throughout the process. The quality of the job was top notch and we are very satisfied with the job.


We wanted to open up our main floor to create an open concept feel in the kitchen/living room. Keith suggested we put a flush mount beam in the ceiling to open the space up and also to have a seamless transition between the two rooms. I couldn't be happier with the finished product and we are excited to be moving back into our new home!


The communication of schedules and on going work made it easy for our family to continue to live in our home during construction without any disruptions. From quotation to design to final product, Eastview Homes  should be your only choice. We plan on working with them again in the near future on another project.


Our plan was to redo the kitchen and both of the bathrooms in the house. Keith suggested we remove the load bearing wall between the living room and the kitchen to give the war time house an open concept feel. Glad we did, Keith and his crew showed up when they said they would  and were very thorough with their work at every stage of the process. 


We hired Keith and Eastview Homes to renovate our entire main floor. When Keith came over he had such amazing ideas. We were so impressed  by the entire team's professionalism. They cleaned up each night which was a wonderful surprise. We couldn't be more happy with the results and it's as if we are living in a brand new house!
