The conversion of basements is becoming more popular as the demand for more usable space increases. Converting an unusable damp or even flooded basement into a dry habitable room can be an inexpensive way of increasing living space and adding substantial value to your home.
Basements – The problems and solutions
Historically, home owners have neglected the damp, smelly basement in favour of building out and upwards. Unfortunately, in most cases this will reduce valuable garden space.
Converted basements offer a wide variety of uses, additional living rooms, home cinemas, home gyms, additional bedrooms with en-suites and wet rooms, and even saunas. The only limit is your imagination.
The need for a professionally converted basement is now essential as regional flooding has increased, and the presence of groundwater can cause severe damp conditions within the basement as well as water seepage and even flooding.
A dry basement now could become a wet basement tomorrow.
