Aurora Basement Renovation & Finishing Contractor


With easy access to 400 series highways and major U.S. and Canadian markets, Aurora offers all the advantages of an urban centre, while encompassing the atmosphere of a small town. No wonder Penguin’s massive growth owes a lot of thanks to the communities of York Region like Aurora for our rapid expansion over the last few years.


Furnished Basement, Easy Living


A finished basement is not only an aesthetic changeup but it also opens the doors to a whole host of other possibilities. For one, an extra room with less fragile furniture is perfect for a playground for the kids. No longer do you have to run around during the winter and pandemic times to prevent the kids from playing where they leave behind a trail of broken vases and stained furniture.


Perhaps you plan on installing a playground for the young ones so they can go downstairs and build a fort, make a restaurant, or be captains of their pirate ship. Maybe they’ve already grown up and are “too big” for all that.


  • Mini soccer for the kids
  • Table tennis
  • Futsal
  • Personal Home Gym
  • New Office Space / Workplace


Invest More Now and Profit Later


A finished basement is a perfect tool if you need extra cash. Your basement is the perfect gold mine literally right at your door. Second suites are legal rentals that have been permitted ever since 2010 by the Town of Aurora and can grant you up to an additional couple thousand dollars a month!


Second Suites Are Permitted In:

  • Detached Dwellings
  • Semi-Detached Dwellings (One Common Wall)
  • Link Housing Dwellings (Townhouses)


All properties are subject to numerous zoning provisions and by-laws detailed by each respective municipality. These zoning provisions require strict adherence and thus a well-experienced and knowledgeable team to turn your basement into what you’ve always dreamed of while making sure city hall doesn’t come knocking at your door with a public notice and fine.
