What is involved in a basement conversion project?


Start by getting a your Reading, Berkshire basement builders or designers to assess the feasibility of a conversion or basement construction. Basement conversion, and basement excavation, is a highly specialised job and engaging specialist basement builders will ensure the job is completed safely with the least disruption to your neighbours and family. Always ask for an estimate on the basement conversion cost before beginning to make sure it’s feasible for you. You’ll also need to ensure before a project commences that you have all the required permissions and consents. If your basement construction requires the lowering of an existing basement floor to create more headroom, or building a brand new basement, then your basement designer’s first step will be to underpin the foundations for additional structural support.

A well-designed basement will blend seamlessly with the rest of your home but can also use clever tricks like creating an internal balcony or mezzanine level to help connect the spaces together. Creating sufficient light for your basement is a crucial concern and so many basement conversions in Reading, Berkshire will now be completed with additional excavations of surrounding land to create light wells or even a sunken terrace around the basement.
