Crawl Space And Basement Excavation Engineering:
Crawlspace and basement excavation projects must be structurally engineered by a reputable Company. You will have peace of mind by choosing Alpine Companies to complete the engineering as we have been in business here in Denver for 50 years. Typically your home is your number one investment, so looking to do major renovations means first and foremost keeping the structural integrity of your home in place. To engineer your structural project we will first need to meet with you on site to go over your specific needs. From there, we will take proper measurements and load calculation. This will allow us to complete the design of the structural engineering we will need to obtain the permits we need to start your home improvement project.
Alpine Companies specializes in foundation engineering for all your structural needs. Such as concrete retaining walls, new footings, stem walls, foundations for sunrooms, basements, additions, subterranean rooms, safe rooms and bomb shelters. Alpine Companies also specialize in foundation repair engineering. Needs for this might include installing new foundation repair piers, repair or replacement of existing wood beams, steel support beams, posts, structural wood floors, structural concrete floors, heaved or heaving basement and garage concrete floors, lally columns, caissons, tie backs, epoxy injection services, slope stabilization and many other types of engineered repairs.
Egress Window Engineering:
Egress windows are a great way to turn that dark basement into a legally conforming bedroom as well as giving you an emergency escape window as well. We take all interior and exterior obstacles into consideration, when choosing the section of foundation wall where the egress window will be installed. By code, egress and basement windows have to be a minimum of 20 inches wide, 24 inches high and no more than 44 inches from the basement floor. This allows the required escapable space to be at least 5.7 square feet. Alpine will also install a new conforming window well when we do your egress window conversion. We will make sure the new window well blends in with your existing landscaping, and will include the escape ladder, steel grate and plastic rain protection cover. Alpine Companies has engineered and installed hundreds of basement egress windows all over the Denver metro area.
Home Inspection Denver:
Alpine companies also offers a thorough home inspection on any property you may be looking to buy or sell. Alpine will come into the home, inspect all major and minor systems to make sure they are up to code. Alpine will also make sure all of your homes structural components work and function properly. It is also a good idea if your looking to sell your home in the near future to get a pre-listing inspection to make sure all systems and components are working properly. By having a structural engineering letter of approval on site, you will greatly improve your chances of selling your home as well.
