Basement Lowering Toronto

Toronto home underpinningBasement Lowering Toronto – Turn your basement into a fun and functional space.

Depending on each situation, different basement lowering techniques will be used based. The method used to lower your basement are based on discussions with you as well as your home, budget and the goals you have for the project. Basement Lowering (also called Underpinning) is a process that can significantly increase the value of your home and also the amount of living space in your basement. This procedure is intended to convert a 5ft, 6ft, or 7ft high basement into areas that clear 9ft.

Basement lowering is popular in Toronto because:

  • You can increase your living space without expanding the footprint of your home
  • Less paperwork, hoops and red tape than building an addition
  • Creates additional living space while preserving your backyard and garden areas

With the high cost and limited amount of real estate in Toronto, lowering your basement becomes an attractive and cost-effective way to increase the living space in your home.  There is also less red tape as it is not considered an addition, rather an improvement to the existing structure.

Underpinning Basement Project Toronto

Bench footing also increases space in a basement. It is when new foundation walls are installed by digging down from the internal wall to just above the existing footings, creating a bench between the wall and the floor.

Digging out a crawl space is another way to add a living room to your home. This process turns a small crawl space into a full basement. A hole is dug underneath the crawlspace and foundation walls are erected creating a livable basement.

Basement Waterproofing

Our basement leaked! Of course . . . we bought a 100 year old house! But my office needed to be in the basement permanently. I interviewed 10 different companies until we decided on the Steinbergs and their crew at Nu-Site! They are professional, reliable, courteous, honest, and they really make an effort to communicate with the client about every step of the process.

Foundation and Waterproofing Repairs

After several years of chronic leaks, we decided to have our basement waterproofed once and for all. The team over at Nusite was professional, answered my questions during the project and stayed within their quoted price....which is always a concern for me when working with contractors. Great job overall

Joshua Persaud - Yellowpages Review

Basement Waterproofing

Had several cracks in my basement wall and they would leak whenever we had a heavy rain. It started about a year and a half ago and seems to have gotten worse over the past 6 months. I tried having my neighbor seal it, but it started leaking again within a few weeks. Called several waterproofing companies and got several quotes. Finally went with Nusite contractors for the job. They gave a reasonable quote and I liked the guy that came by for the estimate. They stayed within budget and cleaned up before they left. It's been almost 3 months now and it seems to be working great.
