What is Basement Underpinning?

Basement Underpinning is the process of reinforcing and strengthening the foundation of an existing building. It extends the depth or breadth of your foundation walls to allow your home to rest on a firmer and more stable base. We offer many other solutions, including bench footings, to provide comprehensive care for your property’s foundation.

How Does Underpinning Work?

Our approach to underpinning involves digging a series of holes beneath your home’s footing, which are then filled with concrete to strengthen your foundation and extend it deeper into the ground. After building a floor matching the depth of your new foundation, you’re left with a more comfortable basement with higher ceilings!

What Are the Benefits of Basement Underpinning?

Basement lowering and underpinning offer much more than just extra support to your foundation; they offer many benefits that enhance the functionality, value and longevity of your home.

Enhanced Structural Stability

By extending the foundation deeper into the soil, underpinning boosts the stability and durability of your building.


Increased Property Value

A well-underpinned home is a valuable asset. This process not only improves the structure but also enhances the market value of your investment.


Higher Basement Ceiling

Basement lowering can provide much-needed headroom in your basement, transforming it from a cramped storage space into a vibrant, comfortable living area.


Upgrade Old Plumbing, Electrical, and Insulation

Underpinning offers the perfect opportunity to modernize some essentials of your home. Upgrading old plumbing, electrical wiring, and insulation can be easily integrated into the underpinning process.


Affordable Extra Space

Expanding your living space through underpinning is a cost-effective alternative to moving. Most homeowners can also continue living in their homes during this process to avoid the inconvenience and expense of temporary relocation.
