Pure Basement systems are established basement conversion specialists with over two decades of hands on experience, we offer a completely mobile service and as such, our reach is very broad. We are fully equipped to serve customers all over Yorkshire, including Ripon and North Yorkshire, offering innovative and practical solutions for our customers damp and unusable basements.
How a basement conversion could transform your home
Many of our customers have chosen our basement conversion services because their basements are damp or even flood prone. Before we start work, many have cellars or basements that are totally unusable, so damp that even the prospect of using the cellar for storage is out of the question. However, once we have applied our years of experience, their cellars are literally transformed into dry, warm and wholly usable spaces.
Our dedicated team of tradesmen are all highly skilled, qualified professionals. Experienced in wiring and lighting, plumbing and heating – this way your project is limited only by your imagination. Our customers enjoy the benefits of having an extra bedroom with attached en-suite bathroom, perhaps a new communal living space or even a subterranean kitchen, each of which freeing up space above ground.
Different reasons for needing a basement conversion
Whether your cellar is damp, flood prone or a mix of the two depending on external factors, it can be a very serious matter, endangering dry areas of your house above ground and risking the spread of the damp in the cellar. The majority of houses built with a cellar are older properties, cellars were intended as cold-storage pantries where damp was not an issue as the contents of the pantry would not touch the walls or floor.
Often built near or close to a water source in order to capitalise on the lower temperatures that saturated ground brings and all at a time when damp-proof courses were not widely used, or even invented. Fast forwards to 2018, and families really have little call for a pantry, cellars make useful storage spaces (when dry) or even extra living space. Either way, through a professionally carried out basement conversion you can improve your standard of living whilst adding value to your property.
Basement conversions for our customers from Ripon
Ripon is steeped in history. The colourful and varied past of this cathedral city could not be more reflected than in its architecture. Properties range from stunning Georgian terraces, imposingly grand Victorian town houses, mid-century brick estates and sleek new-build properties. Often built from the handmade red clay bricks typified by architecture across the county of North Yorkshire.
The risk of flooding in Ripon is relatively low, certainly within the town centre, but low lying areas closer to the River Ure, River Skell and the Ripon Canal basin are listed as at high risk of flooding. The age of the vast majority of houses within the city centre can leave them prone to damp, as a consequence of non-existent or poorly applied secondary damp proof courses failing.
