Benefits of Basement Conversions

Whether you’re converting and improving an existing basement or building a brand-new basement room, you can enjoy numerous benefits, such as:
Basement conversions are an excellent way to increase energy efficiency with quality wall and floor insulation. Renovating the basement also ensures you make the most of the space you have. This is a cost-effective way to add usable living space and can save you from having to move.
Likewise, a basement installation in Fleet, High Wycombe, Marlow, Newbury, Reading or the surrounding areas can help you find the space you need without having to build into the garden or relocate your family.

Planning Permission for Basements

In most cases, you are unlikely to need planning permission to convert an existing residential cellar or basement. However, planning permission is necessary if the basement is a separate unit, the usage is significantly changed, or work alters the external appearance of the property.
New basement construction will need planning permission if it involves major works, a new separate unit of accommodation, or altering the look of the building, such as adding a light well.
Our groundwork contractors always recommend contacting the local planning authority for guidance.
