Oftentimes older basements do not have the height required to make a functional or more importantly, legal basement development possible. At Abarent in Edmonton, we have a proprietary Engineered System that allows us to lower the basement floor to enable proper headroom heights for your development plans. Can you imagine taking an old basement space that you only used for storage (maybe 6 feet or so height) to a new 7-8 foot ceiling that is waterproof with a brand new level floor? It’s possible and an area in which Abarent has over 34 years of experience in.

Basement floor lowering is a process of excavating the existing basement floor to create additional headroom and usable space. It involves removing the old concrete slab, digging out the soil underneath, installing a new engineered foundation retention system and pouring a new concrete floor. This can increase ceiling height and allow for more functional living space. However, it is a complex process that requires careful planning and expertise.
The cost of a basement floor lowering service in Edmonton can vary widely depending on factors such as the size of the basement, the depth of the excavation, the condition of the existing foundation, and the complexity of the project. However, as a rough estimate, the cost can range from $30 to $100 per square foot, with an average cost of around $50 to $70 per square foot. This means that a typical 1,000 square foot basement floor lowering project could cost anywhere from $30,000 to $100,000.
