So, you enjoy your house and everything that comes along with it. Even so, you feel as though there is something missing and you desire the extra space. If this is your situation and you’re interested in fixing this conundrum, chances are a basement excavation will be the solution for you.
A basement excavation is a very complicated and laborious project. Because of this, there are a lot of things to know & consider and we here at Mondo EX would like to help provide you with that info.
Ensure Your Property Plan Approves Underground Excavation
When you want to go about this type of excavation, you want to be sure that your property actually approves for it. The best way of doing so is by getting in touch with an architect and seeing how low (or not) your home can go. At the end of the day, it really depends on your property plan: some already have a lower ground floor that can be easily excavated, whilst others are not able to be dug down into at all. Getting professional advice will help you figure out how you need to plan & budget your project.
Get Municipal Approval
On top of ensuring that your home can even be dug down to begin with, you want to be certain that you contact your local authorities and get approval from them as well. When you want to avoid some serious criminal fees & charges, always be sure to get permission from local authorities.
Is It Within Your Budget?
In a lot of cases, a basement can cost you a lot more than a loft renovation, so it is always recommended that you ensure this type of project is within your budget before proceeding. It also depends on the type of basement excavation you will be undergoing. If you’re planning on digging a basement for a new home build, it will cost you somewhere between $13K-$35K. If you’re considering digging a basement under an already built house, however, the price goes up quite a lot, at an average of $40-$50K.
How Long Will it Take?
The length of these types of projects will all depend on scale & the type of excavation being done. In some cases, it will take a few days to create the foundation — in others, it will take up to a month. In total though, a basement excavation that includes the construction & waterproofing stage will take anywhere from 8 weeks to 20 weeks.
