What is Crawl Space Conversion?

Imagine all of the unused space underneath your house transformed into a functional, comfortable living area. A crawl space conversion, sometimes called a crawl space encapsulation or a crawl space excavation or dig-out, involves converting this narrow, often neglected space under your floor into a partial or full basement, perfect for a home office, family room, home gym or even a complete, separate unit! It’s a perfect choice for homeowners in Toronto hoping to maximize their space without expanding their home’s footprint.

Some Benefits of Crawl Space Conversion

Crawl space conversion brings many transformative benefits to your home, adding substantial square footage and allowing you to design the basement you’ve always wanted. Here are some of the advantages of choosing this method of basement excavation:

Increased Living Space

Transform an unused space into a functional area like an organized storage room, an entertainment room or an additional bedroom.


Boosted Property Value

Adding this much more usable square footage can significantly increase your home’s market value.


Improved Energy Efficiency

With proper insulation and sealing, crawl space encapsulations can provide a more comfortable house with lower energy bills.


Customization Opportunities

Design the newly created space to suit your specific needs and lifestyle preferences, be it for work, leisure, or both.


Better Indoor Air Quality

By fixing unaddressed issues like moisture and mould, crawl space conversions can lead to a healthier living environment.


Structural Integrity

The basement excavation process often involves reinforcing the home’s foundation, contributing to the overall stability and longevity of the structure.


Reduced Maintenance Needs

A well-constructed, insulated and waterproof basement requires less maintenance and is less prone to issues like pest infestations and water damage.
