Bench Footing Services in GTA

Interested in conducting construction work in your basement to get more space? Then, consider the bench footing service from the expert builders at Quality Age Build.

Our Bench Footing Services

The bench footing, known as a bench foundation, is a type of foundation commonly used in construction. Bench Footing is a less expensive alternative to underpinning. This method involves constructing a concrete bench around the perimeter of the basement and it does not require excavation under the existing foundation. It consists of a thick concrete slab or beam that is constructed at ground level, running along the perimeter of the building. This beam acts as the support for the walls and columns of the structure, distributing the load evenly and preventing settlement.

Overall, the bench footing is an effective foundation option for many construction projects, providing stability and support while minimizing potential structural issues.
