Basement underpinning is $350+ per linear foot of underpinned foundation. The price varies by the scale of the project, depth, and thickness of the underpinning sections, project accessibility, and other factors.
The answer is yes, it is possible! The success of underpinning projects depends on the Engineer, Contractor, and the underpinning method. The Engineer has to estimate the structural condition of the foundation and design the underpinning method. The Contractor has to be experienced and use the right methods and materials to underpin the foundation.
The whole process can take around 3 months from start to finish. The engineering design will take 2-3 weeks. The building permitting also takes 2-3 weeks for the city to review and approve the plans. The excavation and construction process will take 4-7 weeks including the scheduling and passing building inspections.
Absolutely Yes! In fact, in 90% of our basement lowering projects in Toronto, the houses were occupied by the owners during the construction process. The only concern is the construction noise during the work hours 09:00 AM – 05:00 PM, Mon-Fri.
By lowering the basement floor you will increase the living area, which directly affects property value in Toronto. Please consult your real estate agent for more information about property value.
