Underpinning

Drain’s 1 Underpinning Toronto Services

In general, we can define underpinning as the process of improving the foundation of an existing building. It may be necessary in cases that a natural disaster like an earthquake has forced the structure to move or maybe the original foundation is not strong enough. Drain 1 Plumbing is the best underpinning Toronto contractor.

Underpinning work is essential if you own an older home in the Toronto or any other GTA area. If you are looking for the best experts for safe and efficient underpinning,  our professional and certified plumbers have years of experience and are able to deliver the best possible result.

The process of basement deepening can improve homes in Toronto and Mississauga with no basements or with inadequate basements. This is a job for professionals, like Drain 1.  In most cases, basement deepening should be accompanied by foundation underpinning, to assure that your home remains solid and stable.

Moreover, older homes in Toronto were often built with inadequate footings, or without proper drainage around the foundation. Changes to surrounding topography have created damages to others. This has caused a change in water flow, either on or beneath the surface.  Furthermore, some homes have had improperly dug basements installed after the original construction was complete.  In each of these cases, foundation damage is highly probable.

It usually involves excavating to greater depth, then installing new footers or other type support structures.  The process gives new life to what may otherwise be an unstable structure.
