    Crawl Space to Basement Conversions for your Denver Home

    crawl-space-conversion-denver-24Does your home have a crawl space? Have you always dreamed of taking that damp, cramped, useless crawl space and turning it into a full basement – complete with lots of extra living and storage area? Alpine companies can help with our crawl space to basement conversions.

    Here are the cold, hard facts when it comes to not having a basement.

    • Homes without basements sell for far less than those with a basement.
    • Crawl spaces are much smaller than basements and are often exposed to the elements, thus making them almost useless for storage.
    • Crawl spaces can attract mold, mildew and pests.
    • Only a basement can offer increased living space in your home.
    • Converting your crawl space into a basement may increase the value of your home by 25% or more!

    The Dig Out

    Alpine Companies starts by digging out the crawl space area to the point where it’s big enough to make a full basement. Then, we add walls and a floor and can finish the basement according to your specifications.

    Remember, dig outs and conversions are complicated and must be done by a professional. Alpine has been doing crawl space conversions for decades and you can rely on us to convert your crawl space in a professional and timely manner. So if you have been wanting a new home office, exercise room, kids playroom or just more storage space, call Alpine and let us make your dreams a reality.

    Crawl Space Excavation for your Denver Home

    crawl-space-conversion-denver-21A crawl space conversion can literally transform your cramped, musty old crawlspace into a basement. As many home owners know, crawl spaces don’t provide useful storage space. They can attract mold, mildew, water problems and sometimes rodents and wildlife. Additionally, homes with crawl spaces sell for less than those with basement.

    What are the benefits of a crawl space conversion?

    • Increased storage space – One of the biggest advantages of a crawl space conversion is the vastly increased space available for storage. Converting to a basement gives you much more space to store your valued possessions…and you can do it in a dry environment, free of the fear of water damages.
    • Increased home value – Digging out your crawlspace and turning it into a basement is a sure-fire way to dramatically increase the value of your house. Homes with basements sell for more. They offer more storage and living space and, in general, less water issues than crawl spaces. When you convert your crawl space, you are essentially adding a new floor to your home…without the extreme expense of putting on an addition.
    • Increased living space – Rather than just adding a plain basement, many people use their crawlspace dig outs to convert to a functional, multi-room floor on their home! They add a basement but also add a bathroom, kitchen, living room, bar, home office, etc to that new basement. This raises home value, adds to the beauty and functionality of your home, and makes it much more attractive to potential buyers.
    • Decreased energy costs – An energy efficient basement cuts down on energy waste caused by crawl spaces, saving you money on your energy bills plus helping the environment.
