Underpinning the Foundation Walls
If your basement is unfinished and has a low ceiling height, then underpinning or benching to add height to the basement is a valuable investment. Our team of foundation specialists can add sufficient living space to your home. Underpinning your existing foundation means that we are digging out the basement in sections and adding a new foundation footing and the wall directly underneath your existing cement foundation wall. The old and new walls are "sistered" together using steel rods called rebar drilled into the base of the existing concrete.
