Is Your Cellar Suitable for A Conversion?

We can help you to find out if your cellar or below ground area is suitable for refurbishment. You can call one of our local teams to organise a basement or cellar survey.

By having a survey completed at your property, you will get the answers you need when it comes to basement waterproofing regulations and what work needs to be completed by our cellar conversion team.

Waterproofing Your Cellar

As the Cellar or Basement is below ground level then water from the ground can enter and flood the area. Efficient and effective waterproofing should never be missed out in the refurbishment process as water can creep in, ruining your furniture, carpets, wall fabric and decorations that you have purchased for your new basement room.

At Richardson & Starling we offer a modern cellar waterproofing system. When you choose a cellar conversion with us. We will install a water management system which channels and manages the water as it enters the cellar. Once the water has been collected it is then disposed of safely out of the basement keeping your room dry.
