Toronto Underpinning

Toronto underpinning is a technical way of restoring the potency of your home’s foundation by excavating sections below your current foundation arrangement and pouring concrete to increase depth. It can help prevent cracking and heaving in your house’s walls, floors, and ceilings as well as restore the integrity of sagging structures.

ALBO Renovations have been constructing, renovating and underpinning homes in Toronto for over 20 years. Our basement lowering projects range from simple walkouts to fully finished rooms that can be used for a variety of purposes. We have a professional design team and engineers that can provide full engineering drawings for your permit application to the city. This will include a structural analysis, a soil condition report and a construction details sheet that will be reviewed by the municipality. Please note that any personal information on your building plans submitted for a permit will be made public in accordance with the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.


The total cost of your Toronto underpinning project will depend on several factors, including the type of underpinning method, excavation and concrete costs, and the amount of work required for any additional repairs. The best way to get an accurate estimate is to consult trusted, experienced contractors who can use their expertise and knowledge of underpinning methods to provide you with precise estimates.

A properly underpinned and refinished basement can add significant value to your property. In a city with a bustling real estate market, it’s an excellent investment that can help you maximize space and make your home a better place to live. In addition, it’s easier and more affordable than adding an extra floor or a home addition outside your property.
