When installing bench footing in your basement, there are a number of things that will take place throughout the process.
First of all, one of our specialists will come to your home and investigate your basement and your foundation. This is an important step in the process. It really helps the bench footing team gain an understanding about the damage or other issues they might face in the bench footing process, and helps them develop a good plan of action.
Once a plan has been developed, our bench footing team will get to work. They will pour a new foundation inside of the walls of your existing foundation, but the new foundation will penetrate deeper into the ground than the original foundation. This helps them easily and quickly lower your basement floor.
Please note that benching a basement often results in concrete “benches” that run around the perimeter of the room where the new foundation begins and the old one ends. Unlike underpinning, benching reduces the overall size of your basement.
