Basements creation and finishing

Basement Excavation

I am often asked if it is better to go up, down or sideways.

There are pros and cons to every option. Finding the right solution for your home and budget is our goal. By the time you have hit this page, I am fairly certain a basement is in the forefront of your mind.

I’ll break them into two parts: existing basements and new basements.

Existing basement development strategies

Basement finishing is usually a pretty straight forward process. The advantage is that you work within the envelope of the home and it is essentially existing space that is poorly utilized.

Levco is one of the few companies that will take on this type of project. Digging a basement deeper that it already is requires lots of manpower and ingenuity.

New basement development strategies

Digging a new basement is a great way of adding additional space to a home that is cool in the summer, quiet and easy to heat in the winter. Using proven techniques to create a new basement is required to avoid the damp musty basements of old.
