Southern Utah is a great place to live and raise a family. There’s so much to do and see that it’s hard to put into just a few words how much we love it here. But for some they find it an oddity that we are so fond of basements here. For those of us who have lived here for any length of time, we understand completely the benefits of a basement.
Spend one summer here in St George and you’ll quickly be wishing you had a basement to cool off in, especially when those temperatures start peaking 105.
It’s also so much easier to add relatively inexpensive sq footage to a home. Instead of putting a 1,500 sq ft home on a lot, you can double that to 3,000 for a dramatically reduced cost. Which to homeowners that’s huge. It also serves the culture of Utah, which is to have bigger family sizes in comparison to the rest of the country. So additional sq footage and rooms is a plus when trying to resell your home.
Why Hire an Excavator to Dig Your Basement
There are so many additional variables that come into play when adding a basement onto a home, as opposed to merely a slab-on-grade. The main necessity is to ensure the soundness of the foundation, that the soil underneath it is properly compacted and able to hold up the home once it’s built. There are many techniques that we use when doing a basement excavation, from the compactors we use to the number of times we compact it.
We’re also acutely aware of the need to ensure proper elevations for your utilities, there are few things that will cause as much havoc on a new home than having water that doesn’t run properly under the home, and instead ends up inside your home!
