Basement conversion to kitchen and utility room
in Ilkley 

When a family with a property in Ilkley, West Yorkshire found that they needed extra space they decided to convert their damp unused basement into a new kitchen, utility room and WC.


Before work could commence the existing basement had to be stripped out prior to the installation of a cavity drain membrane system to the walls and floors.


To protect the floor an insulated moisture resistant floating floor was installed. This would enable carpet or wood flooring to be laid without fear of moisture spoiling the furnishings. New partition walls were created to form the three separate areas along with new plumbing and electrics. 


Finally replastering was carried out to the walls and ceilings allowing the client to then have the kitchen fitted and the decorating completed.
The family now benefits from a useable waterproof basement and a long term guarantee.
