When you think of a basement, what do you imagine? Many people immediately picture a damp, dark place where the laundry and the water heater are located. In today’s ever increasingly crowded world, however, homeowners can’t afford to let space like that go to waste. When it is time to create a livable space from a cramped basement, you want to take a look at basement lowering benefits to see how the process can help you create the basement of your dreams.
The most obvious benefit of basement lowering is the amount of space it yields. No longer are you stuck ducking as you walk through the basement. Now, after a successful basement lowering, you can stride through your basement with pride. Basement lowering essentially takes your basement and makes it taller by lowering the floor further into the earth.
With all of that added space mentioned above comes added money! Remember that increased square footage of livable space equals an increased valuation for your home. This is especially great if you plan to sell or refinance your home at some point – every little bit counts!
Do not underestimate the dangers of a neglected basement! If your basement is so cramped that you can’t stand up or even see very well when you are in it, you could be missing a host of issues – some of them potentially very serious. Mold, for example, is a very real health threat that is present in many basements – but it can go unseen in cramped basements. Foundation damage is something else that can be affected. Lowering your basement floor gives you the chance to inspect your foundation and basement for issues that need to be addressed.
