The quality of any project lies in its foundation. Basement foundations utilize the space underground to efficiently maximize the area of a given property. They also increase the resale value of a property. Hiring a qualified subcontractor and homebuilders will be a necessity due to the knowledge, tools, vehicles, and sheer skill required for building this piece of architecture.


Poured concrete is used primarily in the construction of a slab foundation. Concrete slabs are a well established method for foundation construction. After rebar is installed and footings are poured, concrete slabs provide the solid, level surface needed for construction.

Formed concrete and concrete block is popularly used for the walls of a basement foundation. The concrete block walls are then reinforced with rebar and poured concrete to add further stability and strength to the foundation. Basements must be able to withstand the pressure of being underground, so their construction requires a reinforced material.
