Basement Lowering: Increase Your Living Space

When looking to expand your Toronto home for livability or to increase its value, many overlook basement lowering as a potential option.Basement lowering, also known as underpinning, involves having a basement foundation dug out to raise the height of the ceiling. This is often done when a basement is not full-height, but it can make any basement less claustrophobic and more livable. As you can imagine, digging out the foundation of your home is an intensive process. The existing foundation must be removed in a very carefully engineered fashion so that the structural integrity of the home will not become compromised.Underpinning your basement will rejuvenate your home and is well within the scope of experienced renovation contractors.
