With its convenient proximity to key U.S. and Canadian markets, Bradford provides its residents with a blend of urban conveniences and small-town charm. Along with its nearby cities of Holland Landing, East Gwillimbury, and Mount Albert, Bradford has played a significant role in the remarkable growth of Penguin Basements over recent years. Our rapid expansion owes a great deal to the supportive community of Bradford, which has contributed a great deal to our success.



A finished basement offers more than just a change in aesthetics; it presents a world of possibilities. Picture having an additional room where the kids can play freely without the worry of delicate furniture. Gone are the days of rushing around during winter or pandemic times, trying to prevent them from leaving behind broken vases and stained upholstery.

In your finished basement, you can explore exciting options to cater to their evolving interests – how about setting up a gaming corner with the latest consoles, allowing them to indulge in multiplayer video games with friends? Or, consider creating a cozy movie theatre where they can enjoy film nights with family and friends.

A finished basement in Bradford can be a lucrative asset, providing you with an opportunity to generate extra income. Your basement can serve as a valuable resource right within your reach – Bradford permits legal second suites, which have been allowed since 2010. By converting your basement into a rental unit, you can potentially earn a substantial additional monthly income, amounting to a couple of thousand dollars.


Second Suites Are Permitted in:


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


It’s important to note that all properties are subject to specific zoning provisions and by-laws set forth by the municipality, and adhering to these zoning requirements is crucial to avoiding issues and ensuring a smooth process without any public notices or fines. To navigate the intricacies of zoning provisions, it’s always a good idea to seek out the expertise of an experienced and knowledgeable team.



At Penguin Basements, our goal is to make your life as worry-free as possible while helping you achieve the glamorous basement you’ve always dreamed of.
