Basement Conversions in London
There is a good reason why basement conversions in London are increasingly popular. Space is at a premium in the capital’s properties and it is the one thing that most people want most. Therefore rather than facing the expense of moving house, homeowners are looking beneath their existing properties to discover hidden possibilities in their unused basements and cellars.
There are many options available to you if you want to go down this route and as specialist basement contractors we can take you through the construction logistics and building regulations applicable to each one. Depending on your existing property, there are three main ways. These include creating a basement as part of a new build, renovating an existing basement or cellar space, or excavating a new basement under an existing home and garden.
Basement Waterproofing Contractors
A wet basement or cellar can be a homeowner's nightmare, regardless of whether you are considering a basement conversion. We are expert wet basement contractors in London and will carry out a comprehensive basement specialist survey before any works commence. We can then take steps to waterproof the space and address any damp issues before the moisture becomes a major concern.
Waterproofing a basement involves a combination of applying sealant materials with specialist techniques to prevent leaks penetrating the walls below ground level and causing damage to the structure of the house. It may involve the installation of drains and sump pumps, and the application of a layer of waterproof material directly to the structure. Alternatively some basement builders consider the creation of cavity drain membranes as the most reliable method.
Years in Business
A basement refurbishment takes a neglected and uninhabitable part of your home, and turns it into a fully usable space. It can add extra floor space, and done well, can substantially increase your property value. There are varying degrees of basement conversion from something quite basic to a dramatic excavation and expansion to ensure a spacious feel.
Depending on the type of basement conversion in London, with the clever application of light and design, it’s an ideal location for a family room, home entertainment suite, or alternatively you could use it as a home office. Traditionally, cellars are valued for their storage capabilities so you could relocate your laundry or utility room, your heating system, or pantry. This will then give you more living space upstairs.

What Our Clients Say
"Daniel's take great pride in their work and left the site as clean and tidy as possible each night , something commented on favourably by my neighbours also! There were some delays to the project caused by additional works being required that were not originally factored in, not Daniel's. My only one slight criticism is the communication of impact of these, I think it could have been made clearer when dates were changing. Asides from that the team were all courteous and committed to getting the job done including some late evenings for them at times. Russ and Michelle had regular meetings with me to check everything was going ok and also both came up with some good ideas not previously considered. I love the finished extension and would (in fact have!) recommend them to others. I am also considering to use them again when I'm in a position to get my bathroom redone, I think that speaks volumes. It's great to find a team that you feel you can trust and with Daniel's I feel that I have that."
"Daniel's Contractors were recommended to us by our Architect. We had 5 estimates from building Contractors and made a decision to have our extension built by Daniel's Contractors as we were made to feel comfortable, relaxed and well assured. We are happy with the choice we made. They proved to be very accommodating, conscientious and trustworthy. They worked to a very high standard in all aspects and we are happy with the end product. We have had all positive comments on the work done inside and out by people who viewed it and excellent compliments paid by strangers passing by Thank you for your excellent project management and your team for their good work ethics"
"We recently had an extension I kitchen done through Daniel's Contractors and we are so happy we went with them. We cannot recommend them enough and are going to get them back to do more work this year. Michelle and Russ are easy to work with and they take a lot of pride in their work. All the builders were respectful of our home, were extremely hard working and worked quickly. The outcome is of an extremely high standard and even better than we imagined. We couldn’t be happier.”
"Daniel's Contractors was the main contractor to convert a single storey garage type of dwelling to a three-storey residential house. The job was done to a high standard within the timeframe agreed at the start. Michelle and Russ were polite and professional. I could rely on them to work with different professionals involved on the development and they always found solutions to solve problems. Michelle has a very good taste on choosing tiles, timber floor and kitchen units. I will definitely work with them again.”
I just wanted to say what a pleasure it's been working with you all. I have had many bad experiences involving builders in the last two years - you guys are a real breath of fresh air and a credit to the trade
Daniel's Contractors refitted my cloakroom in just over 7 week, there was very little disruption to my life at all and the work was done to a high standard. They took care of everythin,g I couldn 't recommend them enough
"Daniel's Contractors painted the exterior and interior of my house and did a great job. I'd been looking for quotes for a while & was often getting no response from the companies I contacted. Michelle at Daniel's responded almost immediately to my request, and the job was able to start very soon after I accepted the quote. The quality of their work was high and they managed the deadlines well. Would be delighted to recommend them again.”
"I had a small extension built onto my kitchen to create a utility room. The final result is very polished and functions well. Snagging’s were completed without any fuss. The builders were courteous and hardworking and took advice well. I would certainly recommend this company”
