Types of Basement Construction

Basement Construction Types

There are several types of basement construction. There are three types of basement construction that are the most common; poured concrete, block or masonry walls, and precast panels.

  1. basement constructionPoured concrete basement is the most common and the choice that most people prefer. This type of basement construction starts by pouring the footing for the basement foundation. After these are set, forms are used to hold the poured concrete wall in place as they dry. Poured concrete walls tend to be stronger than other types of basement walls.
  2. Block or masonry walls are the least expensive for basement walls. This type of basement wall construction is made from cinder blocks. This method requires less time than other methods of basement construction. To increase the durability of this type of basement construction, steel rebar is sometimes used to reinforce the masonry wall.
  3. Precast panel basement wall construction is the method where the walls are molded at another location. Then the walls are transported to the building and placed on footers.

No matter what type of basement you may have, each type has its own sets of problems that can arise.
