Basement Conversion Mayfair

Do you feel like you're running out of space regularly? Longing for friends and family to have an extra bedroom? Or actually dissatisfied doing all the business from the kitchen table? The team of experts from Loft Conversion London will help convert your dark, damp & uninviting basement into a beautiful and contemporary new living space. We will help increase the size and value of your house, whether you are looking for a warm and cosy family space, a light and airy office or all the necessary extra bedrooms.

Basement conversion is a more versatile choice than using attic space to build new living areas since it is closer to the main areas of the house and easier to reach, such as the living room and kitchen. Basements provide fantastic family living spaces and can be used as a playroom for children, a home gym, or as a games and entertainment room. The choices are almost limitless for basement conversions. As a practical way of growing living space, you can turn a finished basement into an extra bedroom.

Advantages of a Basement Conversion Mayfair -

  • Increase resale value -
    Converting your dark and damp basement into a liveable space will not only add a lot of square footage, but also value to your home.

  • Increased living space -

How much value can a basement add to my Mayfair home?

You will raise the value of your property by 20 per cent to 30 per cent by getting a basement in your house. The area is limited in a busy urban living space, and it can often be more difficult to extend. But it is a big benefit to have the extra floor in your home with all the extra space and it ensures that your house is deemed more valuable in the eyes of potential buyers and investors of property.

With some basements having very low ceilings it does not add significant quality to the house. The amount of headroom is also significant and adds a lot of value to the quality of your living.

How long does it take to build a basement in Mayfair?

It can take from 12 weeks to 20 weeks for a typical basement conversion, which depends on many variables such as planning approval, weather conditions, basement capacity, headroom, specification and more.

Is My Property Suitable For A Basement Conversion Mayfair ?

Before undertaking a basement conversion project, it is a must to ensure that it is a realistic investment for your property. A basement can be the ideal option if you are searching for space for a playroom, a home theatre, a bespoke gym, or, on a more practical note, to move the utility room to create more space above ground.

Whether converting your basement from a cellar or storage room to a more habitable space or excavating the ground beneath your home to create a whole new space, consider the following to determine whether your property is suitable for a basement conversion.

  • Building access -
    Does your property have ample on-site access for builders during the renovation process to remove soil and waste, supply equipment, and store materials while causing you minimal disruption? You will need to find temporary accommodation if you do not have enough rooms.

     
  • Neighbours -
    Do not forget you have neighbours! When carrying out a basement conversion, see the impact it would have on them. Inform them about the work you are undertaking and seek a party wall agreement. This will ensure that their property is not disrupted by your work.

     
  • Structure -
    What is your property's structural condition and the current walls and foundations? There are a variety of elements which can impact and weaken the structure of your house.

     
  • House type -
    The potential of your house for a basement conversion Mayfair could be based on your type of property.

     
  • Geology -
    A local building control officer will help you decide if your property is appropriate for a basement conversion.

     
  • Water table -
    The water table on which your property is constructed will impact the structure selection and waterproofing of the conversion of the basement. If you have a higher level of the water table, without the water saturating the basement, you may not be able to dig as deep and it will cause more structural problems, making the conversion more difficult.

     
  • Ventilation -
    How much ventilation is needed in the current basement? Or how quickly will ventilation be applied to a new basement? Building Regulations say that with an opening for kitchens, bathrooms and utility rooms, you need to provide rapid ventilation.

     
  • Foul drainage, Groundwater drainage and damp -
    You would need to protect your basement from groundwater that is drawn into your basement if your basement is not already waterproofed, as this can lead to flooding and dampness.

     
  • Light -
    Lighting is important, but since basements are underground, they do not receive a lot of light. Installing a glass rooflight to ensure that your basement receives more light.

     
  • Height -
    Is your basement sufficiently high as it  should have a height of at least 2.4 metres. If your ceiling is lower than this, to build more space, you will need to dig a little deeper, which will make your project more costly.

    Enable insulation, lighting, ventilation, and plumbing to decide whether you need to excavate further down and whether your property is suitable for a basement conversion when considering the height of your basement.

     
  • Insulation -
    If your basement is not already well insulated, you will need to instal in all exterior walls and floors.

     
  • Fire escape  -
    An external door or window for escape in the event of fire should be built if your basement is transformed into a habitable room.
