A walkout basement is generally defined as a door that connects your basement directly with the outside. If the basement is on ground level at the back of a sloped building, then the process can be as simple as installing a new exterior basement door, and ensuring its proper waterproof protection.
However, if the basement is underground, as is often the case, more work needs to be done in order to give you a separate entrance/exit. At Harris Excavation, we can install basement walkouts using the highest grade of materials, to give you a quality exterior exit and stairs down to the basement level.
Why Get A Basement Walkout?
Homeowners are forever interested in maximizing the space that they have. A basement walkout can greatly increase the functionality and enjoyment of your basement room. Perhaps you have a teenager who wants his/her own space? Maybe you have a playroom or an office, or the basement is your bedroom, and you want direct access to the outside?
A walkout basement also gives you another huge option; you can rent your basement as a separate apartment if you want to. This means you can make an income off your home if you want to, and the walkout basement adds value when you want to sell it.
A basement walkout is:
- Great to enhance a basement room.
- Gives natural lighting to the space.
- Adds value to your home.
- Allows you to rent the basement as a separate space.
The Basement Walkout Process
If your basement is underground, then we will excavate down to the footings, install underpinning to protect the foundations, and then deal with the concrete works to build the steps and the walkout area. A floor drain will be required if you have stairs that are not enclosed. We can also install waterproofing to make sure we keep your basement dry.
