By definition we refer to a Basement as a dry area used as habitable rooms or storage. A Cellar is a damp area where you store wine or coal etc. Basements and Cellars are often overlooked areas which can be reclaimed as valuable additional space for your home or business.
Our specialist services can take any area no matter how wet and by using our state of the art basement and cellar systems, turn it into dry usable and habitable space.
The possibilities are endless for a basement, perhaps you cannot get planning permission to extend, yet still need more space. Going down and creating space beneath your house is an often forgotten option, perhaps you already have a cellar and want to bring it up to a usable standard and of course the uses for this additional space can be wide and varied :
Lounge / Guest Suite
Are basements not dark places?
No, we can introduce natural light with the additions of light wells, sun tubes and even external doors leading to courtyards with steps.
Can we have external access?
Yes we can create external steps to your basement and open up access into a yard or garden.
What if I have no drainage at basement level?
We can install systems to take waste from sinks baths, toilets etc up into the mains drainage.
What if I have running water/a flooded cellar beneath my property?
We have systems that will deal with this sort of problem.

So pleased I found this Company!
Very impressed with the range of professional services & product delivery provided. With a number of house issues promptly identified and rectified I feel like my home has been given a new lease of life! Can without reservation recommend Mike and the team as they give an excellent standard of work, value for money and do go that extra mile to get you sorted.
Reliable and pleasant
Reliable and very pleasant to deal with. We encountered some unusual and unexpected obstacles with the work on my house and Mike dealt with everything, going beyond the extra mile until the job was completed. You can trust this firm and I shall certainly call on them again if I need any other work.
A very friendly, professional service.
An experienced surveyor, visited the property promptly and the work was done by quality tradesmen who left the property redecorated and tidy. I wouldn’t hesitate to use this company for any further work that may arise in the future. It is also reassuring that you can always speak to someone when you phone, unlike many businesses who use answer machines.
