Since 2007, Integrity Contracting has been providing foundation footing services to homeowners in Toronto, extending the lives of hundreds of family homes while increasing their property values.
Foundation footing is one of the most important aspects of your home’s structural integrity. It has to be built right the first time to effectively guard against moisture and soil shifts that can cause long-term damage.
For example, if the soil surrounding your home retains too much water and begins to expand, it can create undue pressure on your foundation walls. Over time, water can seep in, causing the foundation walls to expand and contract with the changing seasons.
Soil shifts due to construction in your neighbourhood can also have a negative effect on your foundation. As soon as nearby excavation begins, the soil around your house may shift away from your home, causing instability.
With moisture and soil shifts threatening your home’s structural integrity, foundations have to be built to last forever.
As soon as you start planning your new home or addition, consult us about our professional foundation footing services to avoid expensive and inconvenient repairs in the future.
Insulated Concrete Forms: Strong, Secure, and Long-Lasting
We install insulated concrete forms to firmly secure the above ground structure (Superstructure or frame) when building your new home. ICFs are permanent underground fixtures that prevent damage caused by issues related to foundation settlement and shifting soil.
Insulated concrete forms (ICFs) are panels of expanded polystyrene foam. These panels are connected together, stacked, reinforced with steel, and filled with concrete, thus creating a superior foundation system for your home.
ICFs will not only perform as a superior foundation system than traditional forms, it will also support your superstructure’s dead and live loads and help maintain your home’s structural integrity for countless decades, it will also maximize your family’s comfort and result in energy savings of up to 70% when compared to houses without ICFs.
For its versatility in various home construction applications and superior features and performance; for home additions and new home construction, ICF is the product we at Integrity Contracting use and endorse.
Comprehensive 10-Year Warranty: Our ICF w/Framing installations are backed by our comprehensive 10-Year Warranty, giving you unparalleled added protection on your investment. Ask us for details!
Add living space and comfort to your home while strengthening its foundation with Integrity Contracting’s underpinning (basement lowering) service.
As housing lots in Toronto get smaller due to limited available land, homeowners have few options when wanting to create additional living space. Underpinning is a cost-effective way to create this space by lowering your basement floor.
The result? A basement with an 8 or 9 foot ceiling (in most homes) that you can convert into comfortable extra space for you, your family, or visitors.
Our underpinning solutions can also help give your foundation extra support if you’re adding a second or third story to your existing home. Integrity Contracting has the skills and experience you need to ensure that the structural integrity of your house remains secure as you build.
