Site Services: Basement Excavation in Edmonton

Depending on the size of your property, the work for constructing a basement to a home will usually last 12-20 weeks. Basement excavation can be done for a number of different reasons and can be tricky. The home needs to be supported during the excavation process and there needs to be a secure area provided to store excavated materials. It is also possible to encounter unexpected hazards, and in older homes discovering materials of historical interest. Depending on the type of your basement construction, there will be different methods taken into consideration for your basement excavation. There are three generic types of basement construction: poured concrete, masonry walls, and precast panels.

There are three generic types of basement construction: poured concrete, masonry walls, and precast panels. Forms of poured concrete are stripped away after curing as this type of construction is much more resistant to water infiltration. Masonry walls are the most economical option for a small scale basement excavation. This option doesn’t take a lot of time. However, the concrete blocks can be prone to swelling as this option applies lateral pressures to the basement wall that leads to weakened joints. Lastly, the precast panel is the least common. It is the most economical option when there are multiple basements being constructed at once.
