Lowering a Denver Basement Floor

This is another perfect example of a client wanting to lower their basement floor 24″. At first most homeowners would love to get more head height in their basement, so digging it down seems easy. Not so, typically the foundation of the home stops right where the original builder poured the new concrete floor. As you can see in the picture the floor was just above the dirt line. Now that we have the floor out you can see the tricky part, we have to extend the foundation walls down just as deep as the basement dig out. This turns the project into some serious structural engineering step to move forward. Alpine Companies has been doing concrete basement floor dig outs and crawl space to basement conversions here in Denver for almost 50 years. With Alpine you get the very best. Excavation, new concrete foundation walls installed with a new concrete basement floor, nothing left for you to do but enjoy.
