When we talk about extending a property, people tend to think about building upwards, above ground. But there are many advantages to basement construction in Dorset and beyond too. If you are interested in adding extra space to your property with a basement, our team have the knowledge and skills needed to design and construct a waterproof, energy efficient and useful room.
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.
