Often, older basements do not have the height required to make a functional basement development possible. With the installation of an engineered wall system, we have the ability to lower the basement floor up to 36". At the same time, we address moisture and structural concerns.

In extreme cases, we have replaced foundation walls. Each project is different; with our experience in the area, we have a large base of referral homes to show clients contemplating this type of project, from old to new. Tight access is no problem for our experienced crews.
