The Advantages of Basement Rooms

A basement room is either partially or wholly below ground level. Whether constructed for a domestic property or a commercial one, there are many uses for a basement, from additional storage of goods or heating systems, for instance, to accommodation and even car parking.

The benefits include extending the floor area of a property without increasing its footprint or having to use up any external land, such as a garden. As the costs of moving house or relocating an office rise, it’s often considered a good way of making more available space without needing to seek out new property with all that entails. And a basement room can be much more energy efficient than an above-ground extension as there are fewer external walls exposed to the elements.

Of course, the work to create a basement can be disruptive, as excavation is needed; and then there’s the costs of adding lighting, ventilation, drainage and so on. But if you find an experienced contractor, these can be minimised.

“Congratulations on two members of your team; Anthony and Simon. They are brilliant workers, extremely polite and they are a credit to you! On their departure, they left the site very clean and tidy.”

René and Margaret

“Extremely professional in both their approach and execution of what can only be described as a difficult job. It is so important to get the foundations right and Tri Court certainly did that.”

Stephen Ehrhart

“Tri court couldn't have been more helpful. They did our piling including ring beam and steel re-bars and cages. They were in and out nice and quickly and worked really hard. Did a great job. I have recommended them several times since. Took the stress out of a stressful time.”


“Simon and Anthony were complete professionals and did a high quality job. They kept me informed on what needed doing and how they were progressing. Big shout out to Simon who dealt with a water leak on day 1 on an unknown pipe and getting very wet in the process. Tri Court are top professionals.”
