Welcome to Penguin Basements – Ottawa


If you’ve been thinking about finishing the basement in your home to increase your living space, or even to rent it out for additional income, we think it’s time to give Penguin a call. Penguin Basements will come into your home for a free and accurate design consultation and estimate. In the 2-4 hour meeting, we will examine you basement for any obvious items of concern, talk to you about your intended usage (will it be a play room, a nanny suite, an income basement* or a home theatre?), and discuss budgets before drawing up one, or a couple of floor plans for your consideration. Upon approval of a floor plan, we’ll provide you with a detailed estimate while we are still in your home. We encourage you to compare this with other quotes you may have, as you will see ours is very thorough to avoid any unpleasant surprises mid-build. We have the experience of building between 300 and 500 basements every year, and that benefits our clients as well as us.

A finished basement can not only expand the living space in your home,  it can also be a sound financial investment, adding resale value to your home. If you’ve been thinking about a finished basement in Nepean or Kanata or anywhere in the Greater Ottawa Area, then now is the time to fill out the form on this page or to call our office at 613 800-6100 to arrange your personal and FREE In-Home Estimate and to schedule your dream basement build.


Penguin Basements will help with great advice, great design, secured permits and our renowned project management all the way through to ensure your basement not only meets your expectations but exceeds them. Regardless of how you see your Dream Basement, Penguin Basements can help turn your dreams into reality. With services such as basement planning, finishing, repair, waterproofing, foundation repair, crawl space encapsulation and basement health and mold treatment, there will be no basement project in Ottawa that we can’t handle.
