Penguin Kitchens was launched in 2018 in response to request from the customers of Penguin Basements to bring the same level of quality and professionalism up from our basements builds into other home renovations.  As we were already quite experienced in Kitchen installs thanks to hundreds of second suite builds, specializing in Kitchen renovations made the most sense to us as a vehicle to meet our customer expectations.


Seeing a gap in the market, Guy Solomon launched Penguin Basements in late 2011 to bring a standard of process and professionalism to an industry where he saw it to be lacking.  Guy believed a company should rise above the competition by employing higher build standards, through the use of more suitable materials and the implementation of a proven build process he took from the professional home building industry.  Further Guy felt that the business should constantly evolve based on on-going client feedback, and that each quarter should reflect a better built company than the one before.


That philosophy remains true, and the Penguin Family of Companies is constantly looking to improve our standards, processes, and materials to lead the renovation industry forward, while continuing to offer more to our customers.
