When would I need underpinning?

Underpinning is the process of reinforcing a building’s foundation, particularly in situations where the original foundation may not be strong enough to support the weight of the structure. This process is often used in situations where a building needs to be extended downwards, such as when a basement is being expanded for a suite. We will work with your building contractor when excavation around the existing foundation is needed. TonCar Contracting has the expertise in this aspect of construction to ensure the safety and stability of the building, particularly in areas where poor soil conditions could cause structural damage.

Building a road? Call us for a comprehensive quote.

When it comes to building a road, it’s essential to start with a sturdy foundation. Levelling, when done correctly, creates a flat and stable base. This is important because an uneven surface can cause problems like erosion and potholes over time. Gravel hauling and levelling are crucial components of road building that require expertise and equipment to be done efficiently and effectively. With this foundation in place, the road can then be constructed to withstand heavy traffic and other environmental factors for years to come.
