Basement conversions require a lot of structural planning to ensure that all of the engineering works needed to convert a basement are carefully considered when determining what the conversion costs wil be.
Most basement conversions
required a full basement waterproofing system to be installed to ensure that any existing damp or water ingress into the basement is adequately dealt with to create a usable and habitable living area. Basement conversions come in all shapes and sizes providing extra space where a house extension or an attic / loft conversion
is no longer practical.

is a straight forward process but trust us when we say it isn't, well not for the average DIY'er. As we all know Building Regulations have been dramatically upgraded to ensure that the standard of building works improves throughout the
country and to ensure that all types of work carried out are done in accordance with these regulations, otherwise when the property is put up for sale it may result in the property becoming unsalable.

But before you start to panic... it's not as complicated as it may sound. With the right advise, expertise and professional workmanship a cellar conversion can be an exciting addition to your home. It could become a new play room, a study, hobby room, a home cinema room, entertainment room, or even an indoor swimming pool.
So if you fancy going under ground instead of out into the garden or up towards the sky to create some extra living space, then a basement conversion
is the answer.
