Basement conversions are a popular way to create additional space in your home by adapting an existing cellar or basement into a dry, useable space.

From utility rooms and playrooms through to home gyms and even spas. Freeing up underground space – either through new build projects or refurbishment works – can transform homes, creating flexible living opportunities which make the most of the land available underfoot

Advantages of Basement Waterproofing

Increased The Value Of Your Home By waterproofing your basement; you are adding another useable living space to your home which would otherwise be simply an area for storage. Adding another healthy, useable room can give your home a more comfortable feel and will almost certainly help to increase its value.

Reduction In Energy Used It takes more energy to heat a damp basement than it does heat one that has been sufficiently waterproofed. Proper waterproofing will also seal any cracks and will help to prevent cold air from getting in.

Healthier Living Space Damp basements provide the perfect environment for mould and mildew growth. By properly waterproofing and heating your basement, you can reduce the growth of both mould and mildew, resulting in a healthier living space for you and your family.
