NTL Contracting is a demolition company in Toronto committed to helping homeowners and business owners reclaim their space. Our demolition contractors are experienced in this area of work and have access to all the resources and materials needed to get the job done efficiently and safely.
Demo work has a reputation for being loud and messy, but when we finish the project, it will seem like we were barely there.
We do our work cautiously and with attention to detail, and won’t leave the job site until we clean up. We utilize different demolition methods to suit the unique needs of different properties:
- Partial Dismantling: Also known as selective dismantling, this is when only a section of your space needs demolition. Partial dismantling is best suited to stable properties that are only looking to demolish targeted areas.
- Complete Demolition: Also known as total demolition, this refers to the practice of demolishing the entirety of a space. This method is often necessary for old properties where the exterior and interior are both compromised.
- Interior Demolition: Interior demolition refers to the process of demolishing any part of an interior structure that needs removal. Often, interior demolition involves the removal of stud walls and drywalls. This method may also require excavation to remove interior floors or foundation.
Footing/Foundation Excavation & Backfill
We do footing and foundation excavation in Toronto to restore the structural integrity of your property. We excavate your foundation or footing and then backfill it by replacing the soil or reusing the soil removed during the excavation process.
You can rest easy knowing that, when you enlist the help of our Toronto excavation contractors, we will provide effective foundation services. We will complete the excavation and backfill necessary to ensure that your structure is strong and well supported.
When the ground slopes towards your property, water from storms and irrigation can run back toward your home and cause moisture problems at its foundation wall. This stream of water can create cracks, structural damage, and soil erosion.
We provide grading services to ensure that groundwater water diverts away from your property instead of towards its foundation.
When you excavate a property, it is essential to be mindful of potential utilities such as pipes, drains, and other sources. These utilities are crucial to your property, and you don’t want them to get damaged during the excavation process.
When you work with NTL Contracting, you can have peace of mind knowing that we provide utility excavation to ensure that your utilities are adequately protected and maintained during the excavation process.
You can’t just show up and excavate or demolish a property, because every project site is different and needs preparation before getting started. We provide site preparation to ensure that the project site is ready to be excavated or demolished.
Site preparation may include mapping out any structural impurities and utilities and identifying any relevant building codes.
Manholes & Catch Basins
We provide manhole and catch basins to suit your varying excavation or demolition needs. Specifically, manholes and catch basins are used to manage wastewater and support your stormwater system needs.
A catch basin is put on top of the ground to catch groundwater before it seeps into your foundation. Catch basins are either a perforated or slotted metal grate. A manhole, on the other hand, serves the same purpose but is instead a closed system that requires a solid cover.
A site may need remediation before completing a demolition or excavation project. NTL Contracting offers site remediation in Toronto to ensure that your site is clean and free of hazardous materials, including PCB contaminants, heavy metal contaminants, hydrocarbons, and other environmental hazards that can impact the health of those on-site.
Site remediation is vital not only for residents’ physical health but also for the surrounding environment that can be significantly harmed by the presence of these materials. We strive to ensure that your excavation or demolition job is done efficiently and with minimal waste and damage to the land and surrounding environment.
When you embark on an excavation project to update or repair your foundation, you also want to ensure that you protect your foundation from future damage.
It is essential to have your foundation built or repaired by professionals like NTL Contracting’s excavation contractors. Still, it is crucial to follow up on the project with any efforts that may be needed to protect the new foundation.
We provide stormwater management to ensure that stormwater is diverted away from your home and does not seep into your new foundation.
While grading is done to slope ground away from a property and diverts water away from its foundation, fine grading facilitates land-based projects like gardening, turf establishment, or surface drainage.
Like most projects involving landscape and shared property, fine grading needs to comply with code. Make sure to enlist the help of professionals for your grading needs. When you hire us for demo work or excavation services, we can provide fine grading for your irrigation or drainage needs.
Sewer & Water Main
When you hire us for an excavation or demolition project, we will also service your sewer and water main to ensure that your water sources are working effectively. We offer underground drain services across Toronto and the GTA.
