Basement and attic renovations represent a great opportunity to capture under-used space. If these projects are properly conceived and carried out, they can transform dark, useless areas into attractive and functional rooms.
Both attics and basements pose certain obstacles that need to be overcome. For basements, the obvious issue is water. At Landmark Services, we have the experience to install basement waterproofing systems in old houses so that the basement can then be renovated with confidence.
Once the water issue is addressed, damp, dark basements can be turned into great spaces for playrooms, home offices, or even extra bedrooms.
For attics, the obstacles can be a lack of headroom or the lack of an adequate set of stairs. Dormers can often take care of the former, while careful planning can usually take care of the latter. Once in a while an attic with low headroom will need to have its roof torn off and raised up in order to make the space usable. We’ve renovated attics into playrooms, master suites, and home offices.
