Durham region Basement Renovation & Finishing Contractor


Sometimes, you probably wonder how to increase the living space in your home in the most cost-effective way possible. After all, no one enjoys wasting money. Possibly, you have also thought about renovating and finishing your basement. Yes, you have come to the right place.


Make more space for personal use


Check out our basement portfolio to see the different ways our team at Penguin can improve your basement. You can easily see that it is possible to make a damp, cold and spider-infested basement into a light and airy self-contained apartment that is something to be proud of. And, something that you and your family can use for many years.


You can probably think of many personal uses for your cozy extra living-room. Do you need somewhere for family members or the children’s carer to live, free of charge? They can be independent, yet within easy reach, if they are needed or in case of an emergency. Or of course, you could use the apartment as extra living or hobby space for the family. The choice is yours. And, we can help you realize your choice. Pick up the phone and call us for a no-obligation estimate.


A Second Suite for extra income


But, have you thought about the finished basement as a financial investment? Not only will your basement renovation be easy to build and cost far less than a traditional house extension, but it will also be a useful way to provide a second income.
You can do many things with additional money:


  • Pay off your mortgage.
  • Purchase another property as an additional investment.
  • Use the money to help your kids through university.
  • And, the list continues.


If you live in the Durham Region, you are fortunate to be within an area that has become a much sought after place to live. Therefore, think twice before asking your local handyman to ‘fix up’ your basement. You must use a construction company experienced in this kind of work. To fully realize your investment, the Second Suite must be built properly according to the fire, and construction codes, and must comply with the zoning regulations of the Durham Region. Then, when it is complete, you can advertise your basement apartment as a beautiful Second Suite for someone to live in. Your local realtor will advertise this as a legal rental so you can charge and receive the going rate for accommodation in your area. And, pick and choose your tenants. Contact us for details about a Second Suite investment.
