Basement Conversion Repair

This case study is a great example of how important it is to get waterproofing right when building new houses. This £2,000,000 property is stunning but the basement’s waterproofing had failed because the wall floor joint was not installed properly and therefore, water was allowed to enter the basement. Basement Living was called to rectify the problem and worked closely with the architect to finish the job properly.

With the BS8102 code of practice for waterproofing in mind, Basement Living used a cavity drain membrane system as a repair method and installed membranes all around the external walls. A new build wall was then placed in front of the system for additional protection. The 1300 foot basement is now used as a cinema room and health suite and adds an extra touch of luxury to the home, along with increased value. It’s important to get your waterproofing right first time so if you’re planning a conversion, contact Basement Living for great guidance on how to go about it in the right way and make the most of your space.
