As a contracting team specializing in basement underpinning Toronto, we often get asked this simple question, “what is underpinning?” Below is a brief response to that question.

Underpinning is an industry term that’s utilized to refer to reinforcing an existing foundation. This is to shore-up a construction which was poorly built originally or has degraded over time, is subject to subsidence or even land-slippage, or has been prepared to carry extra weight. Underpinning basement can be done when a homeowner would like to get more height in their basement ceiling. This is also referred to as basement lowering.

BASEMENT UNDERPINNING TORONTO

Underpinning contractors typically become involved in underpinning basement walls since a homeowner decides to deepen them to create a full height basement. In this example, they are sometimes initially little more than crawlspace under a floor. At other times, the plan is to deepen a cellar built for storage, to create a living room with wrought iron head-height.

We called a couple of other so called "reputable" waterproofing companies who tried to oversell. Called Aqua Tech and Nico came by and explained everything to me and what we really needed done to fix the problem.
