Having a basement can offer valuable extra living space and add value to your property without losing precious garden ground.
Basement Waterproofing is becoming a popular way of increasing your space without undertaking major building work or moving home, however it is important to ensure that adequate water proofing is carried out to prevent water penetrating into the property.
When considering improving your home, Basement Waterproofing probably isn’t the first thing that springs to mind. However, it is one of the most important tasks, offering you peace of mind that when adverse weather arrives, you aren’t going to be left with a damp and mouldy basement.
Converting a basement or cellar can not only increase the space within your house (it accounts for the entire floor, roughly about a third of your home’s total space), but it will increase the value of your home (up to 20%), with clean, usable space rather than seepage and mould growth. Aside from this, it allows you to reduce your energy costs by sealing all the cracks and leaks whilst giving you assurances that your home will stay disease free.
