Bench-Footing Contractor Toronto

Lower the Basement Floor with Bench-Footing Method

Do you want to increase the height of your basement? Do you want to increase the storage area of your home? If you are looking for ways to build a fully-functional basement that is cost-effective, Pour Concrete suggests bench-footing or benching technique.

The GTA-based bench-footing contractor undertakes a simple and inexpensive process that includes installation of new foundation walls by excavating soil around the existing footing and creating a bench structure between wall and the floor. In this process, the existing footing and soil under it remain undisturbed.

Is Bench-Footing Ideal for a Home?

Pour Concrete’s team is expert in basement lowering techniques. We can help you with underpinning as well as bench-footing. Even though, bench-footing reduces the size of a basement, it is ideal in the following circumstances:

  • When you don’t want to spend money on expensive underpinning work.
  • When you don’t want to disturb the original foundation work.
  • When the foundation is not strong enough to sustain underpinning.
  • When you want to lower your basement in the quickest possible way.
  • When there is a common wall and the neighbor doesn’t consent you to dig under the foundation.
