After you have filled out the Consultation Form and we have had our initial crawlspace to basement phone conversation we will meet to review the space and confirm the budget. It is important that we take time to understand your wants and needs so we can accurately estimate the project.
Our designer and structural engineer will work together with you to design a beautiful, functional and structurally sound crawlspace conversion. This step is imperative in order to adequately prepare for the crawlspace excavation, basement construction and finishing processes.
Excavation begins with the creation of an ‘entryway’ from your crawlspace to the yard. This ‘entryway’ provides us with an access point to move dirt, workers and equipment in and out of your crawlspace while minimizing our disturbance. Once the ‘entryway’ is complete we excavate the dirt from the crawlspace and until we achieve your desired ceiling height.
Based on the designs we created in Step 2 with the structural engineer, and information gathered during our excavation process, we will add and replace the necessary supports for your home. When we have completed the “re-structuring” of your home, we will have improved the foundation, and will be ready for finishing the space.
We pour the concrete footings, slabs and walls to form your new basement in an efficient and cost effective manner. Our team of concrete professionals follows the plans outlined by our design and engineering team in Step 2. This particular project shown required radiant heat to be installed in the concrete slab floor for the comfort of the kids and grand kids when they come to visit!
