Underpinning is a practical and economical solution for customers looking to increase the size and value of their home. It enables you to turn that unusable space in the basement into something more useful to enjoy. With housing prices on the rise, buying a new home for more space can be a problem for some. Underpinning is a great alternative that can save you thousands of dollars.

HomeStars Review Our Work


If the topic of underpinning has come up in your conversations at home, it is important to ensure you protect yourself and your home, as underpinning can be very dangerous if done incorrectly.

  • Is your contractor licensed?
  • For the project, does your contractor have sufficient insurance coverage?
  • Are permits and drawings needed?
  • Once completed, does the city have to do an inspection?
  • Does your contractor have references readily available?
  • After research and selecting your contractor – hopefully Canada Waterproofers Georgetown! – the first step is to do the free onsite assessment in order to get your drawings completed
  • We also have a network of engineers if you need permits or drawings that can be provided
  • On the otherhand if you wish, we can take care of the drawings and permit needed for your home, so you can avoid the hassle of dealing with the city
  • The average cost for drawings and permits ranges from $2,500-$3,500 depending on many factors, including the size of the project
  • Although underpinning your home may be costly, the benefits out-weigh the cost in the long run
  • You will be able to turn that once-unusable space into a welcoming part of your home, adding more square footage and value
