Basement Lowering – Underpinning

Are you looking to strengthen your basement’s foundation?

You may be considering underpinning if:

  • Your original foundation isn’t stable enough
  • You’re adding another floor above your home, or lowering the basement floor below
  • You’re seeing changes to the local soil
  • Earthquake, flood, drought or other natural causes moved your structure

n any case, with so much at stake you need to work with a company you can trust. MT Drains and Plumbing have the equipment, skills and know-how to see an underpinning project through, from start to finish.

Choosing the wrong crew can result in a home improvement horror story. Unless you do it properly, a botched underpinning job will literally cause your foundation to collapse under the weight of your home.

Choosing the right crew adds value to your home by making your foundation rock solid, and ready to support your new addition- whether it be above or below. Given today’s rising real estate prices, it’s wise to invest in the property you have.

“MT Drains & Plumbing were a great team of professionals who resolved my home issue quickly, efficiently, and at a VERY affordable price! The technician was very knowledgeable and the service was completed exactly on time, as promised.”

Do I Need Underpinning and Bench-Footing?

You may hear talk about both underpinning and bench footing to expand your basement’s height. Which is right for you? That depends. Bench-footing is faster and less expensive. But underpinning is stronger, and gives you more square footage.
