As cellars or basements are usually surrounded by damp earth it is it is fundamental to guarantee that any conversion is completely tanked to eradicate the risk of damp in the future. 


Damp proofing a cellar can be carried out in two ways. The first option is cement-based. This strategy involves waterproof cement membrane, being applied to the internal walls of the cellar or basement. The second option is Cavity Drainage which involves water being channelled into drainage ducts from which it can then be pumped out of the property. Damp2Dry can advise as to which technique is most suitable for your property.

It must be stressed that not all cellars or basements are suitable for conversion. Various factors need to be taken into consideration such as whether the cellar is liable to flooding or if access is restricted. satisfactory ventilation must be available as well as a possible alternative escape route in the event of a fire. Indeed, most basement or cellar conversions will require compliance with building regulations. 

Damp2Dry can guarantee that all necessary regulations are adhered to and can liaise with local planning departments to ensure that any cellar conversion is safe and legal. If your cellar or basement is suitable for conversion you will need to think carefully about how your new space will be used.
