I recently hired Penguin Basements to refinish my basement. They did a truly lovely job and even cleaned up after themselves. The guys always consulted me if they needed to stay after hours, and made sure I was involved every step of the way.

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. Visit http://www.trianglephysiotherapy.com

Their work speaks for itself. Everything is beautiful and modern. Clean, detailed, and lovely. I'm happy to give Penguin a 10 out of 10. Possibly the best contractor I've worked with in Toronto. I highly recommend them.

They helped renovate our unfinished basement and it took them a matter of 3 weeks. The work was very clean and precise in terms of detail. The project manager and his crew would always fill me in on what’s going on each day and what needed to be completed. I would always come to them with questions and they would provide me with a clear answer. Great work everyone!

We were looking for a waterproofed basement after the flood of late last winter. Lucky to have found Penguin who gave a great quote for basement renovations and waterproofing. They got rid of the moldy walls and flooring and mounted new ones and reinforced potential leaky areas. In the end, we loved the results and we're confident we can survive heavy storms. Thank you for being there for us when we needed help.

Penguin Basement renovated our basement two years ago and we decided to call them to help us complete a new workout area recently. The sales representative was very thorough and the team accommodated us in terms of timings and design decisions.

The project manager and crew worked extremely hard day and night to complete the job. We are extremely happy with the results and we love our new workout space.

Penguin Basement were the first ones we searched for online and they gave us a reasonable quote that was within our budget. They used great quality materials and products for our basement and made a custom play room for my boys to have fun. Thank you.

Thank you Penguin Basement for being a good sport and finishing our basement on time. You tidied the renovation mess and made sure everything was up to standard. If anyone is looking to finish up or renovate their basement, this is the right place.

Your products live up to their warranty and are simply the best. It’s been just over a year since our basement was finished and the flooring and walls looks seamless. Our family is down here everyday and the fact that it remains the same quality after a year proves the high standards which your company sets.

We finally converted our basement to a rental apartment this spring (something we should have done years ago) and Penguin was our start-to-finish consulting and installation team. This isn't just reno work. It includes engineering, approvals, safety and a raft of other considerations. In every capacity they were informed and prepared. We really feel like we've done our homework and set things up right by choosing Penguin.
By Luis Rodrigues Caterpillar on Jun 02, 2015
They did everything I’ve asked them to do and more. They renovated my entire basement including setting up the walls, flooring, bathroom, living room, lighting, etc. They finished well before the time frame and everything was neat and tidy. Perfectly according to plan.

What stood out to me initially were the financing options Penguin Basement had to offer. I looked around for quite sometime comparing rates but after consulting with the rep and explaining my budget they had many options to choose from and helped find the one best for my husband and I. The remodeling is just about complete and I can’t stress enough how great it all came together.
By Sarah Hulings Herring on May 03, 2015
Our basement renovations were made a lot easier after hiring Penguin Basement. They specialize in everything which meant we didn’t need to go looking around for a dozen different contractors. We knew right from the initial proposal that Penguin was the right choice for us. Everything was explained in detail so we knew exactly what we were getting ourselves into and felt confident starting the project. Your years of experience and expertise in the field of renovating really shows in the final look and our family adore it!
By Mark Demers Kangaroo-rat on Apr 21, 2015
Had a sit down with our agent after the reno was done and I am happy to report the extra home value will almost fully cover the cost. We're not 100% sure we're going to sell but that just means we get to enjoy a wonderfully renovated space that also acts as an investment. If you've got an unfinished basement, you're making a mistake sitting on it!

Penguin did some waterproofing and structural work in the fall before proceeding with the main reno work. It's been a lengthy process but has been done on schedule. We were kept appraised of extra work needed and got to eyeball items of concern such as foundation cracks before OK'ing everything. On the whole I've found them thoroughly professional and look forward to the final result.
By Chris Ledbetter Komodo-dragon on Jan 13, 2015
The project manager took care of the entire permit process and made sure things were escalating in a reasonable time frame. The drawings and architectural components were exactly what we had in mind and all our concerns were dealt with in a prompt manner. My wife and I are very impressed with your team’s work ethic and are absolutely delighted with the final product.
By Ken Nye Raccoon on Nov 20, 2014
From demolition in the beginning to adding accents at the end, the entire project went just as you promised it would. I appreciate that the Penguin team worked efficiently to get the job done and always kept a tidy work space. The budget was competitive and changed little over the lifetime of the project.
By Glen Howard Viper on Oct 23, 2014
Great job on the basement, team. My wife and I are thrilled with the way everything turned out. The space has been improved so thoroughly I can't believe how drab it used to be.
By Jane Fincher Toad on Oct 09, 2014
As first time home owners my husband and I were looking to renovate our space so that we could enjoy it for years to come and create a big family. Also with housing prices increasing yearly we knew it would be a great investment down the road. Penguin Basement worked with our ideas to create the basement of our dreams while remaining under budget, which was a huge plus.
By Joyce and Henry Kiwi on Oct 03, 2014
Repairs and remodeling seemed a lot easier with Penguin Basement instead of my husband. He’s a great handyman but when our basement needed water proofing I knew we had to call in the professionals. It was a huge project to tackle and I’m so happy it’s finally finished and looking gorgeous. Every little detail makes the space that much more inviting. Your team is simply amazing at what they do and I love that everyone sticks to their specialty to avoid confusion or a job poorly done. I’ve also saved so much time and money if I were to design and hire different contractors to get the renovations done.
By Janet Bravo Robin on Sep 12, 2014
Our basement kept piling up with more and more junk. I wanted a relaxing space for my children when they came to visit but with all that clutter it seemed impossible. We worked with Penguin basement to create a storage space but the other half was a functional lounge for our family. I am so happy with the final product, it looks great.
By Hilary Mockingbird on May 21, 2014
About a year ago we started to see a build up of mildew in our basement which got more and more unpleasant. We decided to have someone from Penguin Basements come in and check it out. Turns out we called at the right time because had we waited it would have turned into some serious health issues. The team worked fast after the inspection and was able to get the job done without a concern. Not only does it look great but it’s also safe and mildew free! Thanks, guys.
By Sammy Broc Guinea-pig on Jul 23, 2013
I had a water tank leak that destroyed my basement. I was devastated thinking of all the money I will need to spend on fixing my problem. A friend recommended Penguin Basements, so I decided to contact them. After getting a free inspection, I was offered a quote that I thought was fair, but not affordable at the moment. They agreed to work out a financing option for me, and I have been a satisfied customer ever since. The basement was renovated in just one week.

Are you writing them yourselves
By Nail Kumar Lamprey on Jul 23, 2013
I had Penguin Basements renovate the basement in our newly purchased home. I love the job they have done, the basement looks great, and their financing options made it very affordable.
