Aspire Basements are the leaders in basement conversions for Warwickshire and Leamington Spa. We specialise in transforming damp, unsightly basements and cellars into comfortable, vibrant and habitable living areas and creating bespoke designs for new rooms.
Make your dream of a basement conversion a reality
We are experienced in designing, constructing, and managing all types of basement and cellar conversions according to the most rigorous industrial standards. From drainage and damp proofing to ensuring sufficient natural light and a seamless integration with your current structure, we have the technical skills to produce all types of cellar conversions, retrofit basements, and to build new basements prior to a structure being built. Our team can even undertake excavations and extend the existing footprint of your property for a suite of rooms including swimming pools, gymnasiums, cinema rooms and leisure areas.
Each project provides its own set of challenges such as soil conditions, high water tables, structural loads, underpinning and much more. Using our expertise in all aspects of this industry, including the leading products and technologies, lighting and access, our work comes with a ten-year below ground guarantee for all waterproofing systems and a 30-year product guarantee from our leading manufacturers including Wykamol Group and Biokil Crown.
Basement conversions Leamington
We are based in beautiful Royal Leamington Spa and have completed an exciting range of projects in the town and in Warwickshire more generally. Our team has helped customers to create more living space, to make use of wasted basement areas, and to create sets of rooms for leisure and business use. The many Victorian houses in this area which have a purpose-built basement or cellar are particularly suited to conversion. However, depending on conditions, we can also build new or extended basements and cellars for other types of properties. If you own property in sought-after urban areas such as Leamington you can significantly add to the value of your home or business premises through a basement conversion.
The waterproofing of cellars and basements is more commonly known as 'tanking'. It involves the application of a thoroughly waterproof membrane over masonry and floor surfaces, and is done in order to prevent any water from entering the property. Aspire Basements will design a specific waterproofing system tailored to your property's requirements, and we will guarantee the protection of the structure against water from the ground. With our commitment to using only the best products and technology, we are an approved applicator for the UK’s leading waterproofing and tanking manufacturers.
There are three main types of systems to prevent physical ground water from penetrating the structural walls and floors in a basement conversion. The first is through the careful application of liquid membranes such as epoxy or bituminous products, self-adhesive sheet systems and cementitious compounds. Another technique, which is often used in new-build projects, is to use concrete and steel reinforcement to produce a water-resistant shell. The final method diverts penetrating water with a cavity membrane drainage system, and water is directed it to a suitable discharge point outside of the building. This is particularly suitable for older properties and for where the water table is higher than usual. The correct design of the drainage system is critical to the success of your basement conversion.
Regular basement conversions and bespoke basement conversions
If you have a wasted cellar space or basement, our team can help you turn them into an extra room for your family or tenants, such as a cinema room, a bathroom, a bedroom and or a study. We can even create basements with extra head height for your comfort and convenience.
Alternatively, we can help you to create bespoke designs for a new amenity such as swimming pools, gyms, spa rooms, sauna and hot tubs. Using our extensive knowledge and technical expertise, we can undertake excavations and extend the exiting footprint of your property. Aspire Basements will conduct an extensive survey to develop a plan that meets your requirements.
