Virginia Water basement conversions

Many homeowners in Virginia Water and the surrounding Surrey Water have taken to investing in Basement Conversions to extend and develop their property. As space is very much at a premium in modern houses, this can leave very little room for extensions and renovations. As a direct answer to this, many people are looking to invest and redevelop their basements into contemporary living spaces.

At Bailey Construction UK Ltd, our selection of highly trained builders and structural specialists are in high demand as we have an extensive and unrivalled knowledge of basement conversions and renovations.

How do they add value to a home?

A well-structured basement conversion has the potential to increase the value of a home within the Virginia Water by approximately 30%, whereas a conventional extension can add up to 20%. If your home has an existing basement, a conversion can have a quick turn around of 14-21 days. If your property already has a cellar, it can make financial sense to convert it into extra, habitable space within your home.

However, if you are looking to add basement space to an existing building or a new build, there are many factors to consider. Is your plot liable to flooding? Does your plot allow for easy excavation? Our experienced team at Bailey Construction UK Ltd can answer all of these questions and more.

Before our customers commit to converting their basement space, we advise that they contact their local council and estate agents in the Virginia Waters area to confirm if committing to a basement extension or conversion will add value to your home.

What should I do before I convert my basement?

Before any building work can be carried out on your property, our team will conduct a thorough and comprehensive inspection of your property. Most obstacles can be overcome with time and the right research. However, houses that are subject to high water tables and that have primary services running beneath it may incur extra costs.

Local councils and authorities have maps and lists of local areas within Virginia Waters that are close to rivers and are therefore at higher risk. Modern townhouses and terrace houses are often built on raft foundations, meaning that they are underpinned and cannot have a basement.

Our team of trusted builders will assess your home and offer you precise and cost-effective solutions to suit your needs and your home. Sometimes, basement conversion or extension is not possible and will impact the safety of your home. Our team will never compromise security for design and will offer fair and frank with you about your possibilities.

If you love in the Virginia Water or surrounding areas and would like to discuss the potential conversion of your basement, please contact our expert architects and builders at Bailey Construction UK Ltd. A member of our friendly team will be happy to assist you and offer guidance and advice. Please call us on 01428 653 716.
