Structural Waterproofing to Upgrade Damp Basements and Cellars

Making unloved underground spaces liveable again

Some of the most satisfying work we undertake is helping with the transformation of previously unliveable, dank and damp basements, cellars and vaults into dry welcoming, useable, useful living and working spaces. Stonehouse regularly converts existing under-utilised basements and cellars into home offices, playrooms, wine cellars, gymnasiums and large kitchen/living spaces. The options created with basement conversions are huge and can often be done at relatively low cost and minimal upheaval to property owners or residents.

Every project is unique, so we approach every upgrade with a fresh perspective and a focus on getting a detailed understanding of what the ambitions are for the space. We suggest that you call us at the earliest possible stage of the project before building works commence so that we can inspect the area thoroughly using our comprehensive survey process. We’ll then produce a detailed report recommending the most appropriate method of waterproofing. That way you will get a good overview of the scale of the works, the timelines involved, and the budget required. We’re always happy to share our experiences of previous basement and cellar conversion projects and the benefit of our expertise.

For most conversions we can act as a specialist sub-contractor to a main contractor or we can complete the works with our own directly employed specialist team of operatives, plasterers and carpenters.
