Make a living space out of your otherwise
unusable basement

Basement Lowering and Underpinning make a living space out of your otherwise unusable basement. Back in the day, the basement wasn't considered living space, as it is today. As a result, basements in most old homes have low ceilings and exposed ductwork. Basement underpinning helps to create a comfortable living space for the family. Our team understands how complicated basement lowering can be. That is why we offer a basement underpinning as an add-on service.

Underpinning & Lowering Services

Our underpinning system will help create more living space. It is better than benching because although benching will help you create extra living space, it robs you of square footage. Underpinning will help you increase the overall height of the basement as well as the square footage.

Basement lowering involves the digging out of a basement floor a few feet below. AquaMen Waterproofing has the equipment that you will need for this.

The Process

Basement underpinning is not an easy feat. A lot of work and resources are needed. However, this is a necessary task, and the first step you need to take is that of getting engineering drawings and permits. AquaMen Waterproofing will assist you with this step.

The process of basement underpinning starts with the removal of the concrete floor, followed by excavation. The contractor must dig out the sections according to the drawings provided by the engineer. This is mostly done in three stages. If you need new posts, new footings will be required. Temporary jacks will have to be installed to support the beams. The next step is for a two-inch space between the existing footing and concrete, where we install the two-inch dry pack grout.
