House prices in Toronto and the surrounding areas keep rising, making useable space in the home that much valuable. Underpinning is a great way of making that unusable basement into something that becomes part of your family home.
The value you will add to the home by underpinning your home and finishing that unused space will far outweigh the cost of buying a new home, with prices where they are.
Canada Waterproofers Brampton can underpin your home at an affordable price and more importantly we’ll do it safely. We have all the skills and training needed to provide you with the safest underpinning service in the GTA.
CONSIDERING UNDERPINNING YOUR HOME?
If you are considering having your basement underpinned, then it is very important to ask all the right questions. Underpinning can be dangerous if it is performed incorrectly. Here is what you should be asking a technician:
Are you licensed?
Do you have all the correct insurances?
Do you need drawings and permits?
Do you need the city to inspect your work?
Do you have references?
If your contractor answers “yes” to all of these questions then you are probably safe, but be sure to check out all the credentials before any work is started.
