Create Space with Basement Lowering / Underpinning
Basement lowering and underpinning of Windsor area homes is usually required to create additional living space. In some of the older homes, basements have lower ceilings and are primarily used as a utility space. However, with the proper engineering, construction, and waterproofing technology, we convert these types of basements into livable space, by lowering the basement floor and waterproofing the foundation. This is usually done by foundation underpinning or benching.
Which One? – Both foundation underpinning and benching require structural changes to your walls and footings in your home. The benching method is a quicker process and less costly, however it also provides less space. Whichever method is selected, it must be done correctly so that your foundation is not damaged.
