How We Build

So you've decided to THINK BASEMENT and do something exciting with that empty space under the floorboards!

With minimal disruption to the rest of the house, a basement conversion is a great way to extend your home. Every home is different and has many factors that need to be considered as part of the construction process, but we’ll discuss this when you meet one of the team.

Here’s a simple 3 step guide to how we’ll transform your basement into a stunning new space.

Step 1
Preparation

All preparations for your basement conversion are dependent on what you’re having done and the results of our technical survey. This might involve digging out the floor to increase the ceiling height, preparing the walls by removing debris and lime, applying a wire-mesh substructure, or adding to the foundations to make the house safe. If you need planning permission, we’ll guide you through the process.

Step 2
Water-proofing

Often called tanking, we create a waterproof barrier between the cold and wet ground on the outside and the warm comfy living space on the inside. Using either a drained cavity membrane or a render based barrier system, there are several advantages to the methods we use, but we’ll discuss this with you as part of the design process. We have undertaken the leading structural waterproofing training courses so that the system we design for you is the best around. It’s essential to protect your home from the elements, so we use our expertise and experience to make sure the water stays outside!

Step 3
Finishing

This is where your vision really starts to take shape! We’ll make the space fully habitable and finish it to your specification. This involves decoration to a professional standard, adding utilities such as water and electric, and laying your choice of flooring. And if you’ve gone for the Luxury conversion, we’ll be installing your furniture and hardware exactly how you imagined it!
