Depending on each situation, a different lowering technique may be used. The method we use is determined based on a variety of guidelines, including; 

  • Structural Safety

  • Homeowner Preference

  • Homeowner Budget

  • The Overall Goal


Basement Lowering (also called Underpinning) is a process that can significantly increase the value of your home. Underpinning adds functional living space to your basement, the procedure is intended to convert a 5ft, 6ft, or 7ft high basement into an area that clears 9ft.

Turn Your Basement Into a Fun and Functional Space

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.
