What We Do

What are underpinning services?

Underpinning is a process that involves strengthening and stabilizing the foundation of a building or structure while adding extra space to your basement. Excavating beneath the current foundation and installing more support are standard methods for accomplishing this.

Underpinning is an effective solution for adding that much desired height and other foundation repair needs. Underpinning can stop future damage and ensure the stability and safety of the building or structure by providing additional support to the foundation. Our underpinning services in Toronto are designed to provide our clients with the extra space they require while using the latest technology and safest techniques to deliver long-lasting results.

How it works

Investing in professional underpinning services is critical to ensuring the foundation of your property's safety and stability. Don't jeopardize your property's structural integrity by hiring an inexperienced contractor; instead, rely on the experts to provide high-quality underpinning services.

01. Inspection & Assessment

The foundation is inspected and assessed as the first step in the underpinning process. This could entail taking measurements, running tests, and inspecting the structure for signs of damage or weakness.

02. Planning & Design

A foundation underpinning plan is developed based on the inspection results. This includes designing the new support structure, determining the excavation method, and creating a project timeline.

03. Excavation

The following step is to dig beneath the existing foundation. This is usually done in small sections to avoid damaging the building or structure. The depth of the excavation will be determined by the project's specific requirements.

04. Support Structure Installation

After the excavation is finished, the new support structure is installed. This may entail the installation of concrete footings, piers, or other types of support. The support structure is intended to add strength and stability to the foundation.

05. Backfilling & Restoration

Following the installation of the support structure, the excavation area is backfilled with soil and restored to its original condition. This could entail replacing landscaping, repairing any damage to the building or structure, and leaving the site clean and safe.

The Advantages

How you can benefit from underpinning

Some frequently asked questions

Cracks in the walls or foundation, uneven floors, or doors and windows that don’t close properly could be signs that your foundation is deteriorating and that underpinning is required. A professional underpinning contractor can inspect your property and assess whether underpinning is required.

The length of the underpinning process is determined by the project’s size and complexity. Generally the process could last several weeks. Call us so that we can get our team to view your project and walk you through each step from start to to finish.

The cost of underpinning is determined by the size of the structure.

Yes. Never start a foundation project with any contractor without receiving a warranty. Rock and Roll Underpinning will provide you a written warranty for any work to be done on your property.

Underpinning can be a messy process, but an experienced contractor will take the necessary precautions to keep the mess to a minimum and your property safe. The process entails excavation and foundation modifications, which can cause damage if not done correctly. Working with a reputable and experienced underpinning contractor, on the other hand, can reduce the risk of damage.

It may be necessary to vacate the property during the underpinning process in some cases. This is determined by the project’s specifics and the scope of the work. A professional contractor can advise you on whether or not you will need to vacate.

Most foundations, including concrete, brick, and stone, can be underpinned. A professional contractor can assess your specific foundation type and determine the appropriate underpinning method for your property.

Underpinning can potentially cause structural damage if not done correctly. Structure damage, water damage, utility damage, and soil instability are all potential risks and problems. To avoid these issues, it is critical to work with a licensed and experienced underpinning contractor who can take the necessary precautions and ensure that the work is completed safely and effectively.

Underpinning can improve your property’s structural integrity, potentially increasing its resale value. However, the impact on resale value will be determined by a variety of factors, including the specifics of the project, the property’s location, and the overall condition of the property.

When selecting an underpinning contractor, do your homework and look for a reputable and experienced contractor. You can look into their ratings, credentials, and experience. You can also ask for references and examples of their previous work to evaluate their abilities. It is also critical to obtain a detailed estimate of the project’s costs and timeline, as well as to ask any questions you may have.
