I have a basement of approximately 500 Sqf. I need to do finishing of this basement. The finishing works include construction of laundry room, walk-in closet, installation of false ceiling with lightings, painting of walls and carpet for the living area.

How much will this work cost me if it is carried out by a local contractor?

Hi Muhammad,

As of 2009 in Ontario, prices for basement renovations ranged from $30.00 per square foot to $60.00 per square foot. The range is large and it generally depends on 1) the actual amount of work that needs to be done to get to your requirements, and 2) the levels of finishes you are looking for.

You should do as much planning as possible including selecting as many finishes, fixtures, and flooring as you can.

If you are serious about it, do your homework and put your requirements in the "Post Your Project" section so local contractors can contact you and give you more accurate numbers. The more you can specify, the better you will be able to compare the estimates or quotations. The objective is to get them "apples to apples"

Good Luck with it!
