This example illustrates the conversion of a basic two room space into a warm dry comfortable basement playroom and basement study. This also includes the formation of a W.C. beneath the stairs, making this a versatile and useful addition to the home.
|The walls had at some previous time been painted with a blackjack bitumen paint, which is a basic and typically ineffective measure included to block out dampness present within ground retaining walls.|
|Another shot of the space prior to conversion, this area subsequently became the basement playroom.|

"I can highly recommend Trace. I rang to get a damp survey booked in on a property we were looking to buy. Lewis was very helpful over a couple of phone calls, even ringing back on a day off! Offered advice and help even though we didn't end up going through with the survey. Great service, will use again."
“Just had Trace in to deal with a fairly significant damp problem in our house. The work was completed to a very high standard in the timescale agreed before commencement. Really good communication throughout and the tradesmen were really professional. Left the house as tidy as possible every day and I’m made up with the outcome. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to family and friends.”
