Basement Conversions

Basement Conversions

A basement or cellar conversion is a great way of adding additional room to your home. It is also an excellent alternative to moving house, transforming potential space into a fully functioning room. If you are considering other options to invest in or create space in your property, take a look at the other services we offer from extensions to loft conversions. The possibilities are endless…


With up to date construction methods, we can convert your cellar or basement from what may be a dank and dingy, no go area, to a warm, dry, airy space. Whether you are considering a home office, gym, family games room or an extra bedroom we will create your vision and turn it into a reality.


Here at Damp Resolve UK we can complete your cellar or basement conversion right from the design and planning stage, through to any structural considerations, damp or waterproofing systems, installation of electrics and plumbing. Our expert plasterers and decorators will add the finishing touches, and any fixtures and fittings can be sourced directly if required.

Basement or Cellar Planning Permission

We understand that a cellar or basement conversion is an important investment in your home or property, and we offer a free, no obligation, consultation service to discuss your project and what we can achieve for you. It is unlikely that you will need planning permission to convert your cellar or basement, but in all circumstances you should check with your Local Planning Authority for guidance.


One of the most important aspects of your cellar or basement conversion will be the damp or waterproofing, of which there are several different types available. We will discuss these with you and find the best solution for your basement or cellar.

Basement tanking systems

Damp Resolve UK design and installs various types of basement tanking systems. These vary depending on client requirements and site conditions. Structural Waterproofing or Tanking is required when lateral damp penetration affects earth retaining or partially earth retaining walls (i.e. underground) by moving from the ground through the brick or block construction causing dampness or, in some cases, flooding internally.


Damp Resolve UK Surveyors will carry out a full site inspection to determine which system best suits your requirements and property type. Whether it is a small vault or a complete retro-fit basement conversion, Damp Resolve UK have the solution.

Typical Structural Waterproofing systems used by Damp Resolve UK include:

  • Cementitious Tanking systems (Sovereign or Triton)
  • Epoxy Resin Systems (Vapourguard – Trade Sealants)
  • Cavity Drained Membrane Systems (Sovereign or Triton)
