There are many benefits to lowering your basement:

Additional Living Space
Lowering your basement can increase the amount of usable space to create separate living areas, whether it’s for a family member or to generate rental income. By adding more livable space, you create new possibilities for using your home.

Improved Accessibility
Adding more height to your basement increases accessibility and allows for freedom of movement. When your basement height is too low, it restricts what the space can be used for and limits accessibility for you and your family.

Increased Property Value
Creating a more usable and visually appealing basement will increase the value of your property. Lowering your basement helps to maximize the potential of your home and can be a way to increase your price when it comes time to sell.
