Seeing a gap in the market, Penguin Basements was founded in 2011 by Guy Solomon to bring a standard of process and professionalism to a burgeoning industry.  Learning from past experiences on both the professional and personal side, Guy believed that a company should rise above the competition by employing higher build standards, utilizing more suitable materials and implementing a proven build process (similar to that employed by housing developers) to deliver a better basement in terms of design, functionality, quality, and durability. He also felt this would be a company built for the long-term rather than one designed — like too many renovation companies — to cash in on the home improvement boom.

The philosophy remains true today, and Penguin Basements is constantly looking to improve our standards, materials, and processes to lead the industry forward, and to offer a better product to our customers.  We call this our Smart Basements™ approach. In addition to winning the Basement Renovation of the Year Award in 2019, we are multiple Consumer’s Choice and HomeStars Best award-winner and more importantly, a BILD and Renomark™ certified company that continues to be fortunate enough to be professionally recognized and customer referred.
