I purposely didn't review the underpin performed by Rock Bottom Underpinning as soon as they were finished because I wanted to let some time pass to see if any problems were going to present themselves. Well, it's been 3 years since the job was done and I'm very happy to report that everything's just great. There have been no issues with the new foundation (below a 100 year-old original brick foundation) or any of the infrastructure, which includes a radiant heated concrete slab. Drains are fine and floor's perfect - polished concrete - another contractor - no cracking or settling. They also installed an I-beam to support an old chimney that couldn't be removed and that's rock solid as well. I have already recommended RB to neighbours and in fact they're underpinning a house on my street right now. Great crew with solid engineering and hard working labourers who work very quickly and precisely, all led by their main contractor who's honest, affable and a fantastic problem-solver. Here's the best part: we had three quotes and theirs was the lowest - true story. Couldn't be happier with the result. Laying down on a heated concrete basement floor in the middle of winter looking up at an 8 foot ceiling is something I'd never imagined could be so satisfying. If anyone's considering this very serious alteration to their home give RB a call, even if it's just for some advice and information. My guess is that if you do decide to dig they'll be the ones on the other end of the shovels.
