Our client wished to transform this basement from an unliveable and unusable room, to a habitable and usable storage space be repairing its structure and increasing its head height. Given we love a good basement renovation to be able provide our clients with the most out of their property, we were happy to help with this incredible transformation.
This basement had limited head height and was very damp which rendered it as an unliveable and unusable space. The reason it was damp was because of the ground water which had seeped through the walls and up through the floor, as well as, the lack of air circulation the room had.
We underpinned the perimeter walls, we then installed a waterproof membrane system to the walls and floor with a sump and pump system and treated the timber joist as they had wet rot and beetle infestation in them.
