If you’re thinking about finishing a basement? Rest assured, that’s a wise choice. A finished basement is not only a great way to expand the living space within your home but it is also a sound financial investment that will make your home more attractive and more valuable if you decide to sell in the future.
And if you are thinking of adding a basement apartment, or second suite for an in-law, live-in nanny or as a source of rental income that may even be a better plan.
In either scenario we say, don’t just think about it finishing your basement, just do it. And we’ll help every step of the way with great advice, great design, secured permits and excellent project management developed over the past 6 years to ensure each basement we undertake, not only meets expectations, but exceeds them.

”great job, quality, customer service, value for money, and over all excellent job!“
”We recently used Penguin Basements to finish our basement in Newmarket, Ontario. We had seen their sign around town, and figured we should inquire about their service and finishing system. We did inquire with some other companies as well, but found Penguins' presentation made the most sense for us. We are pleased to say that everything — from the first response of our inquiry, to the finished product — has been very seamless and actually quite enjoyable.“
”Guy... what to say?! What a guy! had the pleasure of speaking with him this evening and all I can say is that he knows housing. so informative, fun and really a helpful guy. Very honest. actually helped convince us of what needs to be done. even though he told us that renovating our basement is actually not a good idea he took the time to go over with us some other options. Eye opener! Thanks Guy.“
’Claudio, our finishing supervisor should get an 11/10. He showed incredible professionalism, skill, and commitment to making the customer happy.“
”Basement Bliss. No contracting work proceeds without a hiccup, but it's how you contractor deals with such issues that shows whether they care about the customer or just the money. It's obvious that everyone at this company is passionate about what they do. Highly recommended.“
”It was a great experience from their initial guidance in design to the final project. Biggest pros - quality of work and accountability. The builder trend app is fantastic. It was an aggressive schedule but they delivered. And our project lead Alan was exceptional. Cons - there were a few disconnects early with the demo phase. And the work comes at a significant premium, so the benefits (quick completion, accountability, quality) need to be worth it. For us they were.’
“I wanted to thank Dan and Josh for their outstanding and professional service! I hired them to finish my basement and our basement now looks amazing. I highly appreciate their work quality and material selection!”
”I always had concerns about which company to use to finish my basement. Penguin Basements put me at ease, from the sales person Dan who brought an floorpan that I would never have considered, to Vince, the project manner, who kept me well informed and made sure the project was done to the highest of standards. There were no real surprises along the way, and they made sure we were happy every step. Fantastic Job.”
”We had an excellent experience with all the staff at Penguin Basements from our first meeting, through to the end of the project. All the contractors we met throughout the project who worked on the basement were professional and did an amazing job. We can't wait to use our additional living space to entertain our family and friends!”

"It came together ABOVE what I had imagined."
"We recently moved into our new home (2009) and we planned on finishing our basement. Our neighbours across the street had your sign on the lawn so we decided to see the completed work. It looked professional and we then requested a quote. 3 weeks later we had a brand new finished basement, simply amazing and thanks for everything."
"Just a note to let everyone at Penguin Basements know how pleased I am with my new Basement. Your three-man crew was amazing! They started at 9am, and by 3 that afternoon, they had already framed half of the perimeter of the basement. Two weeks later the job was completed and all the debris was removed. Thank you for a great job! We couldn't be happier. I will definitely recommend your company to family and friends."
"We could not have asked for more from a Renovation Company. For starters, our consultant was very knowledgeable. He knew exactly what we had in mind and met of all of our requirements Secondly the installers were professional and efficient. And finally the basement has been a tremendous addition to our home as Greg and Mary now have a place to play with all their toys."
"After 8 years in my house I finally had it with the messy basement. I called Penguin Basements and asked them for their advice on a design. I was really impressed by all the designs and concepts Alexander created. He advised me on all my choices, gave me a great price and completed the job in just 16 days, from start to finish. They carefully cleaned up after themselves and were always anxious to accommodate me. I'm very pleased! Thanks Again!"
