The Pulpit Rock
Sections are marked and underpinned


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, you will add value to your home, as well as more living space.

Give Canada Waterproofers Burlington the opportunity to show you how we can turn your home’s unused basement space into an affordable living area. Give us a call today for your free onsite assessment.


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.


  • Once you have done your research (and hopefully choose Canada Waterproofers Burlington!), the first step is to get the drawings finished for the project
  • We can provide you with our engineer contacts if you need drawings and permits done
  • If you don’t wish to go through that hassle, we can assist with your drawing and permit needs
  • The average cost of drawings and permits range from $2,500-$3,500
  • Underpinning can turn unused space into a welcoming, finished basement with eight-foot ceilings, adding square footage and value to your home

What to expect once an underpinning project has begun:

  1. Basement cleared
  2. Basement demolished
  3. Transporter installed into window
  4. Bin arrives for soils
  5. Concrete floor removed
  6. Walls are underpinned by sections
