So if you are looking to hire a professional basement contractor in Barrie, Innisfil  or the greater Simcoe County region, give Penguin Basements a call today at 705-999-9212 or fill out the FREE ESTIMATE form on this page. We’ll then arrange an in-home appointment to examine your current basement and sit down with you to discuss your wants and needs and exactly how your basement will function to determine the very best options  for second living rooms, theatres, home offices, game or playrooms, basement apartments, or just about anything else you can envision.




Remember that a basement transformation is not as difficult as many people think. Once we determine that your current basement is basically sound, it’s only a matter of spending some time going over what sort of improvements must be made, the kind of additions you want for the wiring and plumbing, and what kind of additions will make the basement into space you can use for years.


Every step of the way, our team will be right there. From preparing the quote to making sure every phase of the renovation is done properly, our goal is to ensure you are happy with the result. Even if you are still mulling over what kind of transformation you want, let us help. Together, we can explore your ideas, talk about what it would take to make them reality, and ultimately settle on a plan that serves you well for a long time.
