Thinking about finishing a basement in Markham? You’ll find that’s a smart idea. A finished basement is not only a great way to expand the living space in your home; it can also be a sound financial investment, making your home more attractive and valuable if you decide to sell it in the future.


Or perhaps you are considering adding a second suite or basement apartment for an in-law, live-in nanny or as a source of rental income? While Markham currently restricts the creation of second suites or basement apartments with tight guidelines, the municipality is expected to change this legislation to meet the new provincial mandate designed to increase the availability of secondary suites in the provinces most densely populated regions.


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 and excellent project management to ensure your basement not only meets your expectations, but exceeds them.


The fact is, whatever your basement plans are, Penguin Basements can help you realize them. With services such as basement planning, finishing, repair, waterproofing, foundation repair, crawl space encapsulation and basement health and mold treatment, there is simply no basement project in the Markham area that we can’t handle.
