The value of properties with basements is considerably higher than those without and, as the costs of moving fluctuate, more and more residents are choosing to stay put and renovate. There are many options to consider when deciding to expand downwards in your home – what will the extra space be used for? Is it safe? How do I know I’m choosing a reliable and experienced company to carry out the job?
Look no further than groundworks contractors, S Peet Groundworks Ltd. Based in Chipping Norton, we have been providing a range of relevant services to clients in Oxford and the surrounding Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire areas since 2010, and our reputation as a leading name in demolition, bulk excavation, plant hire and grab hire precedes us.
We can safely excavate the area beneath your existing property to prepare the space for use.
There are many points to note when it comes to basement conversions:
Our tip? Don’t paint the walls white in order to make the area brighter. And stay away from fluorescent lighting; the glare will give your new basement an office feel with no comfort. Choose a warm ivory shade to retain the illumination whilst still incorporating a warmth into the area.
A basement conversion isn’t for everyone but it’s not always possible to build side or rear extensions and, depending on the age of your Oxford property, perhaps you don’t have a roof suited to a loft conversion. If that’s the case, S Peet Groundworks can certainly help by starting the basement renovation process.
Our trained groundworks contractors are fully qualified and highly skilled, on hand to offer advice and suggestions at all times in order for your remodelling or construction project to go as smoothly as possible. With over 100+ years’ experience in the construction and demolition trades, our bulk excavation, plant hire and grab hire services are highly sought after in Oxford and the surrounding Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire areas.
For all services we provide, we’ll arrange the appropriate permits. We’re also accredited to Street Works UK, guaranteeing peace of mind for our clients when it comes to working to best practice in public areas.
