Basement Digout Services
Basement remodeling has historically been one of the fastest and least expensive ways to add usable square footage and value to a property. Typically, a basement remodel’s scope is limited to the height of the existing basement. However, a basement lowering or “dig down” can significantly lengthen a basement ceiling height which enhances the final outcome.
Many existing basement ceilings are low—an average of about 6’8” in height. During a remodel, a ceiling and floor is laid down, decreasing the height even more and leaving an uncomfortable, cave-like experience. In other cases, the basement’s ductwork and pipes run so low a basement remodel is just not feasible. The only choice in both these scenarios is to lower the floor with a basement digout.
Increasing the height of a basement by lowering the existing floor creates an entirely usable basement living space. This process is quite popular among homeowners and rental property owners alike.
