Ah, the basement excavation process. Few things are as intimidating for homeowners, and it is no wonder why: seeing your home all torn up, all the way down to the basement, can be a terrifying prospect! But keep in mind that we have a very clear and carefully formulated method, and that even if things look chaotic, they are truly organized at heart. We want our clients to trust in our ability to excavate their basement right – that’s why we are so transparent with our process. Take a look below to see how we go about excavating your basement.
The first thing that our specialists do is take a look at the current basement in question. They need to see what kind of foundation they are working with, and what options they have for expanding the space. If the foundation is in poor shape, for example, then the house will need to be reinforced while the foundation is removed and replaced with a new foundation that will adequately support the home. They will also make note of any repairs that need to be conducted.
The most important stage, our experts will take all of the information they learned above and put it to good use. They will use it to carefully plan out the basement excavation process – and this includes everything from necessary permits to potential safety hazards and even the specific kind of equipment and labor they will need in order to get the job done.
Design and Construction
The team will design the plan, and then get to work on your excavation. As mentioned above, they will either replace, repair, or simply build on top of the existing foundation depending upon its condition, and then lower the basement floor to create more space.
