Upgrading an existing basement or digging out and excavating a new one can be a great way to create more living space and add significant value to your home. English basements, entertainment and media rooms, home offices and added bedrooms are creative and valuable uses of space, often returning your investment dollar for dollar when designed and built properly. We also convert basements to legal apartments to add income to the household. A window well can expand those tiny basement windows and let in more sunlight. Keil Construction ensures maximum return on your investment whether we are upgrading an existing or partial structure, or digging out a new one. We are well-versed in underpinning safely should that be required to achieve the desired ceiling height. We analyze the foundation and structural elements, including water-management and sound-deadening considerations, both being vital components to a well-designed basement. And the good news for our clients – while we are excavating or upgrading the basement, life can go on upstairs!
