    We drill narrow shafts and insert steel piles. It helps to transfer the load of the home’s base to deeper and more stable soil layers. Mini piled underpinning is particularly useful in areas with variable soil conditions, restricted access, or environmental sensitivity.

    Beam and Base Basement Underpinning in Hamilton by Will Fix
    Beam and base

    Here we use a reinforced concrete beam instead of steel piles. We construct the beam below the existing floor and put base on it. It becomes a solid 'platform' for the structure's weight. We recommend to contact our team before choosing underpinning method.

    Mass Pour Basement Underpinning Hamilton by Will Fix
    Mass Pour

    We excavate sections beneath the existing foundation and sequentially pour concrete to create a new, stronger one. Mass pour underpinning is perfect for shallow places, where the depth of the new bottom does not exceed the depth of the basement.

    The leaky basement was driving me crazy. I tried to fix it myself, but water came back every time a new crack appeared! I started to think that I was cursed or something. I gave up and contacted Will Fix. Why the hell didn't I do this before?? They found an underground source of water that messed up my basement and built a unique structure to redirect it. They also performed basement waterproofing. The whole process took less than one month when I tried to fix it for several years... thank you!!read more

    What should I consider before deciding on basement underpinning?

    Firstly, assess the condition of your existing foundation and the soil it rests on. Check local building codes and permit requirements, and consider the long-term goals for your basement space.

    Consult with our Will Fix engineers to understand the potential impact on your property value and daily living during renovation. We can help you weigh the benefits against the investment to make an informed decision.

    How do I know if my property is a good candidate for underpinning?

    Here is your short checklist:

    1. It has an aging ground and/or insufficient headroom
    2. You’re looking to enhance the living space and property value
    3. There is something with structural integrity, soil stability, and the absence of excessive groundwater are also crucial factors.

    Our Will Fix professionals conduct a comprehensive assessment to determine if underpinning is the right choice for you.

    Can basement underpinning fix existing foundation issues?

    Yes. The basement lowering reinforces the structural strength and helps to fix cracks, leaks, and uneven settling. At Will Fix, we identify and resolve any underlying issues, providing a safer and more secure foundation.
