Find professionals to convert your basement

Use Plentific to find the best local experts to convert your basement. Your basement could be upgraded from storage space to more living space, a wine cellar, cinema room or even kitchen. It’s also proven to consistently deliver a high rate of ROI.

Alongside the increase in living space and property value, you can also save money. It is cheaper to extend and renovate than it is to relocate, so it pays to improve rather than move.

What do I need to know about finding tradesmen for a basement conversion?

Planning is at the forefront of whether to convert your basement. You first need to find out if your basement has the right height to allow for conversion and to also see whether your property is in the right location to allow for the work to take place. For example, if there is a river local to you then this may not be an option.

The way to do this is to hire a local structural engineer. The role of a structural engineer is to assess whether a building is strong enough to withstand the strain of a conversion. Structural engineers would work alongside architects as the design proposition is developed.

In order to proceed with the conversion, you must gain planning permission from your local planning authority. Having completed this process, you need to research and compare local builders, plumbers, electricians and decorators.

Depending on the layout of the basement, you will need walls to be built or taken down. This floor may need re-wiring, installation of plumbing and painting and wallpapering.

How much does it cost to convert a basement?

The range in cost for a basement conversion is stipulated by whether you have an existing basement or not. For example, should you convert an existing, it could cost an estimated £740 - £1,400. However, lowering the floor level would increase it to the £1,500 - £2,000. If you don’t have a cellar floor, then digging this in would cost from £2,000 onwards.
