Create a basement in a crawl space

Otto and Ernie, from Wilkens Brothers Underpinning, took on the task of completing a huge underpinning job that involved building a new basement under a bungalow. [This job was abandoned by Clifford from Pegasus Underpinning after the city building inspector deemed Clifford's work unsafe. After Clifford took off, I felt hopeless and frustrated, until I found Otto and Ernie.] Their professionalism and skills were immediately apparent. Although this underpinning job was extremely difficult, Otto worked with the engineer to make the building safe. He brought in his team, Steven Troy, Anthony and Robert. They completed the excavation and built 9ft deep basement walls. I was very impressed with Steven's leadership and the entire team's work ethics. Steven always responded to my phone calls and text messages promptly, leaving me at ease with the project. Their customer service was excellent given the fact that there were many unforeseen challenges that came with the property. Wilkens Brothers Underpinning were able to provide solutions for all challenges promptly and met my requests with a positive attitude. Every time I visited the job site I noticed significant progress was being made. Steven, Anthony and Robert are an awesome self-managed team and took a lot of stress away from me. This is the way a truly professional team should function! I highly recommend Wilkens Brothers Underpinning if you want the job done right!

Basement Underpinning

Underpinning of my 100 year old semi. Otto was transparent, communicative and very fair with any issues we encountered. His crew were exceptionally hard working, very clean and friendly - I can't wait to have them over for the dinner I promised them when the interior is finally done. The end result is very high quality (as recognized by both my finishing contractor and the city inspector). My neighbour underpinned his similar house the year before me using a low cost contractor and crew. I paid a bit more but the speed, quality and ease of interaction was definitely worth it.
