Walk Out Basements

With the introduction of the provincial Bill 148, many residential homeowners are now converting their basement to rental apartment units. All basements that contain a bedroom must have two means of egress to the exterior.

Cochren Foundation & Repair has developed new technology for walk out basements that eliminates conventional underpinning and 4’-0” deep frost walls. This innovation means faster and safer construction resulting in money savings.

Basement Lowering

Most basements of older homes within the older areas of our cities and towns are not high enough to walk around comfortably. - In many of these century homes and pre 1940 homes the basement was often referred to as the 'cellar' and was used as a utility space where such items as the furnace, (coal storage / oil tank storage in older homes), water heater, breaker panel or fuse box, systems were located.

With proper engineering and modern construction and waterproofing technologies it is possible to convert these basement storage spaces into livable space by lowering the basement floor and waterproofing the foundation.

Are you considering having your basement lowered to increase the basement ceiling height and gain some additional living space?
Are you avoiding remodeling and finishing your basement because the ceiling height is too low or the floors are buckled and cracked and the walls are damp or have water leaks?

If you are looking to add space to your home, lowering the basement to add additional ceiling height may be the solution.

You might be surprised how much space can be created when finishing a basement by lowering the basement floor and the base level of the foundation by means of foundation underpinning or bench-ledging. Make your basement a useful, livable space that adds value to your home now and when it's time to sell.
