Guy Solomon Seeing a gap in the market, Guy Solomon, with a background in accounting founded Penguin Basements in 2011 to bring a standard of process and professionalism to a burgeoning industry. Guy believed that a company could 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. The philosophy remains true today, even as Penguin looks beyond basements and expands into Second Suites, Condominium Renovation
and Garden Homes. A Renomark™ certified company, Penguin remains dedicated to the vision of its founder, to deliver value above and beyond the competition, and to deliver a great investment for the end user, the home owner.
