Welcome to our world of Beautiful Basements.

Beautiful Basements is a specialist contractor providing a complete range of waterproofing and new build basement construction for both the residential and commercial sectors.

What we do

We exclusively work below ground and have built a vast wealth of specialist experience in the last twenty years. Basically, your project is underground then we’ve probably already built or waterproofed one very similar and can help you!

Our experience with Beautiful Basements

We have four Certified Surveyors in Structural Waterproofing on staff, who have a combined 45 years’ experience in building and waterproofing basements. This means that if your project is underground we’ve probably already built or waterproofed one just like it!  Take a look at our gallery to see some examples of our previous work or follow us on Instagram to see what we are doing right now.

Industry leading expertise

Delivering the exceptional

Commitment to what we do

Our main passion and focus at Beautiful Basements is building new water tight basements, we have been doing it for 15 years and we’ve seen almost everything.

Basements must be built properly to ensure there is no water ingress, so we take every stage and every intricate part seriously and everything is designed in advance by our expert surveyors. We are building your foundations for years to come; we want you to rest easy knowing you are in safe hands.

Take a tour through our previous works to see for yourself.  Whatever your project, project intricacies or constraints, we have likely seen it and built it before!


A commitment to quality

Our number one priority

At Beautiful Basements you and your project are our most important aspects, to us that means insisting upon absolute quality all the time. We do not know the words “if” or “but” or how to cut corners, we only know exceptional commitment to excellence.

Throughout every project our management team will spend hours on each stage checking the quality of every aspect, constantly looking to learn and improve, passing this knowledge to our staff so that everyone understands.

This commitment to learning, teaching and excellence are part of our core values as a company.

Highly trained specialist staff

It’s our staff that make the difference

Although we’re a small team we’re all experts or working towards being an expert in some aspect of basement construction. We’re truly driven to do a great job and learn more about every aspect of this specialist form of construction. Even our labourers are sent on management courses so that they understand “why” they are doing things rather then just “what” they are doing.
