Underpinning & Basement Lowering
Underpinning is the process of extending or stabilizing an existing foundation, usually done to strengthen the structure or increase the ceiling height in a basement. Lowering a basement floor is a complicated, laborious job but well worth the effort and expense when it comes to adding comfort and value to any house. A deeper foundation means more headroom and overall area in a basement which is an essential quality of a great, livable space.
Call in the Professionals
Basement underpinning requires architectural drawings that have been engineer approved, a building permit from the City of Toronto, and then the tools, skills and knowledge of an underpinning professional. This is definitely not a do-it-yourself job! Underpinning is a major structural undertaking that, if not done properly, could ruin the integrity of your foundation and even lead to a collapse of your house.
