Basement conversions are a great way to add space to your home without moving home. As well as freeing up more space for storage or a more adventurous project, cellar conversions also add value to your property. Basement conversions are a simpler way to make more space in your home, rather than with a loft conversion or a regular house extension. Loft conversions require more structural care than a basement conversion, and a regular house extension can take up garden space. If you have a cellar or basement, everything is in place for a basement conversion.A cellar conversion is a great investment. It can add up to 25% of value onto your property also. The basement conversion cost will depend on the individual property and the project you have in mind. However, we are happy to discuss any questions you have on a cellar conversion cost or cellar conversion ideas. The most-effective way we can decide on any costs and ideas would be to carry out an initial survey on your home.
Basement conversion in Huddersfield
One of the great things about a basement conversion is that you can take a dark, damp, unused room in your home, and turn it into almost anything. If you’ve always wanted a games room, a spa room or home gym, then a basement conversion can free up the space to make that a reality. Alternatively, you can opt for a more practical storage room or utility room if your home is short on space. One of the main issues unused basements and cellars face is issues with damp and mould. Watertight Homes can damp proof your basement to prevent these issues reoccurring in your converted basement. If left long enough, damp and mould can cause structural damage within a property, as well as affect the structure of a property such as flaking paint.
