During the past 10 years the basement cellar has been revived as habitable accommodation and many householders are benefiting from utilising the redundant cellar beneath their homes. A basement conversion could be the solution to your family's changing lifestyle as an alternative to the inconvenience of moving house.
Modern building materials and high performance waterproofing techniques have revolutionised basement conversions. Cavity drainage membranes applied to walls and floors control and divert water ingress to an appropriate drainage point with little preparation required to the substrate. The problem of no natural drainage can be overcome by the installation of channelling to a mechanical sump pump. The membranes can then be plastered or finished with an insulated dry lining system to combat condensation. Floors can be screeded or boarded over the waterproofing system.
Previous conversions range from utility areas to reception rooms, guest bedrooms to play rooms, even modern kitchen diners.
