Cost information for a prefabricated cellar

The costs for a prefabricated cellar are usually within a certain range, which can be narrowed down with the help of some specific data. However, if certain difficulties arise, such as rocky ground, the basement can become considerably more expensive.

Complete cellar, expansion cellar or shared cellar?

An important price-deciding factor is whether the client is willing to actively cooperate. A complete cellar is in the highest price segment, because this is where the contracted construction company delivers a complete prefabricated cellar.

  • Also read - More room height for the basement: the cost of excavation

Both the external insulation and the internal staircase are missing in the expansion basement, and the client has to take action here. The built-in basement is the most cost-effective variant: This version also lacks the foundation earth electrode (against lightning damage), the base plate, the drainage system and the windows.

Other important price factors for the prefabricated cellar

  • The subsoil plays an important role in the cost of the prefabricated cellar: a water vein or rocky ground drives up the price of excavation.
  • You pay less for a low basement than for a high room. The standard size is around 2.25 to 2.40 m. A higher prefabricated cellar is usually only available at an additional cost.
  • Of course, the area of the prefabricated cellar is also decisive for the final price.
  • Regional price fluctuations can have a significant impact: In metropolitan areas you tend to have to reckon with the highest costs for the deployment of construction workers.
