Foundation Replacement breathes life into old house

Aquarian Renovations Ltd retained Abarent Construction Ltd to replace the foundation under a stately old historic house in Glenora.  The existing foundation had failed.  The owner wanted to add an addition on to the house and completely renovate the remainder of the house, but was wise enough to start with the foundation.  Abarent raised the house on steel beams and proceed to demolish the existing foundation and excavated for installation of a new basement.  Abarent has been specializing in this type of project for well over two decades and has many difficult projects such as this one to be proud of.  After the basement was successfully replaced with a new concrete 9 foot high basement, Aquarian took over and worked their magic on the balance of the renovation.  Another project well done.  Call Abarent Construction Ltd when considering your options on your old basement.  Replacement is not always necessary, but the pros at Abarent would be happy to tell you what options are available to you.

What our customers say:

Owen and Linda De Bathe

Access to the site was a challenge. Material to be removed and replaced had to be loaded into wheelbarrows and pushed uphill and down. It was an arduous undertaking and the men on the job worked very hard. The work ethic and discipline of the crew was impressive. As well, we were very pleased with the workmanship and clean-up following completion of the project.Read more

Abarent provided a 3-page, itemized list of the specific work to be done at each stage of the project, including descriptions of optional issues (including additional costs) that might arise during the work. The company president did the initial walk-through for their estimate and later went through it, line by line. He pointed out potential problems and things we had to prepare for during the work (extra cracks, concrete dust, effects on neighbors, etc.)… Repairing a foundation is a very traumatic event for any householder because all of your house investment is (literally!) in the air. If you have to do it, call Abarent. They are professional – we cannot recommend them highly enough.Read more
