Benefits of Lowered Basements

Underpinning your basement elevates its overall height and uncovers many benefits for you and your home. You will enjoy a dry basement equipped with its own waterproofing system. Since you have an expanded, well-configured space, you also have the flexibility to transform your basement into rental units, entertainment spaces, or anything that suits you. As a result, a full-height basement proves to be a great addition to your home’s value.

With our basement underpinning solution, you can also add a walkout entrance to your new basement space. This new access point will give your potential tenants a separate entrance and allow natural light into the space. It can also serve as an alternative fire/emergency exit.

Improve Your Basement Use

Underpinning can help you gain the much-needed square footage in a limited space.
