A crawl space conversion can literally transform your cramped, musty old crawlspace into a basement. As many home owners know, crawl spaces don’t provide useful storage space. They can attract mold, mildew, water problems and sometimes rodents and wildlife. Additionally, homes with crawl spaces sell for less than those with basement.
What are the benefits of a crawl space conversion?
- Increased storage space – One of the biggest advantages of a crawl space conversion is the vastly increased space available for storage. Converting to a basement gives you much more space to store your valued possessions…and you can do it in a dry environment, free of the fear of water damages.
- Increased home value – Digging out your crawlspace and turning it into a basement is a sure-fire way to dramatically increase the value of your house. Homes with basements sell for more. They offer more storage and living space and, in general, less water issues than crawl spaces. When you convert your crawl space, you are essentially adding a new floor to your home…without the extreme expense of putting on an addition.
- Increased living space – Rather than just adding a plain basement, many people use their crawlspace dig outs to convert to a functional, multi-room floor on their home! They add a basement but also add a bathroom, kitchen, living room, bar, home office, etc to that new basement. This raises home value, adds to the beauty and functionality of your home, and makes it much more attractive to potential buyers.
- Decreased energy costs – An energy efficient basement cuts down on energy waste caused by crawl spaces, saving you money on your energy bills plus helping the environment.
