How can we Help you Today?
Housing prices in Burlington and the surrounding GTA are on the rise. More and more people are trying to take advantage of unused space in their home to avoid buying a more expensive and larger home. Underpinning is a great way of turning that unused basement into a space that becomes part of your living area.
By underpinning your home and completing that finished unused space, it will add value to your home making it cheaper to do so instead of purchasing a new home at a higher cost.

Are you Considering Underpinning your Burlington Home?
We recommend considering a couple things before beginning the underpinning process on your home. It is essential to ask the right questions. If not done properly, underpinning can be very dangerous.
- Is your contractor fully licensed?
- Does your contractor have all the correct insurances?
- Are drawings and permits required?
- Does the city need to inspect any work that gets done?
- Does your contractor have references?
Be sure to do your due diligence when looking into underpinning your home. Canada Waterproofers Burlington is here to answer any questions you may have.
