Adding extra living space to a house is usually a highly attractive proposition for homeowners – it provides useful extra space for storage, growing families or bespoke function rooms such as a gym, and it adds value to the house itself. The only potential snag is the time-consuming process of securing planning permission and enduring the work itself, with extra rooms added to a house proving to be a complex and messy task.
To avoid this, many homeowners are realising the worth of the so-called ‘dead space’ beneath their homes – the basement. Basements are often taken for granted and used as dumping grounds for random household objects, but to fulfil their potential they can be converted for many uses, in a comparatively hassle-free process.
But any basement remodelling job needs the utmost attention to safety. Being underground, basements are more at risk of damp and any construction work carried out within the foundations of a house could affect the integrity and structure of the building.
Basement Now is a basement renovation company that has a multi-specialised team that has expertise in the safety and security aspects, along with ensuring the renovation is attractive. A crucial aspect of this is the installation of drywall, which reinforces the basement renovation and ensures protection against moisture while insulating the new room. For extra reinforcement, the Basement Now team applies taping to the new floors and ceiling, sealing the room securely and providing a smooth finish to the new renovation.
Decorating is something that the team can also undertake, with professional painters completing the job using quality paints– they can paint ceilings, baseboards, crown and cove moldings, and complete wall priming. The team also features professional tilers who will use strong, crack-resistant tiles that also protect against leaks. Another aspect of a secure basement renovation is the flooring. An underground area must have a strong and durable base to protect against leaks or movement in the ground. The Basement Now team supplies high grade laminate flooring as standard, adding an extra layer of resilience to the new basement.
Finally, the essential systems of plumbing and electrics are also provided, with Basement Now employing professional plumbers to not only install new plumbing systems into the basement, but also to fix any existing plumbing problems. The team also includes fully-licensed electricians, who can take care of the safe installation of required electrics, and they can also provide an electrical certificate for any homeowner looking to sell the property.
The Basement Now team also offer the option of an open floor plan renovation, where the completed work is left as a blank slate for the homeowner to be flexible with its use – whether that be a gym, a child’s play area or something else entirely.
“Basements are often a wasted opportunity for some truly innovative renovations,” says a spokesperson for Basement Now. “There is so much that a quality basement conversion can add to a home, while avoiding the costs and building time associated with adding extra rooms through extensions.”
