Edinburgh New Town Cellars
Edinburgh Under Street Cellars useful information.
We get asked quite often to survey Edinburgh under pavement cellars in the New Town area of Edinburgh these under street cellars are very often we find not high enough to do anything with because by the time we install the cavity membrane which we use to initially line the cellar then we frame the cellar out and install the dry wall plaster board this reduces the height by around 75mm so in a lot of instances we have found that some other contractors who do this work have told the clients that there is nothing that can be done.
This is a shame because there is an answer and its really quite simple we dig sown and lower the floor level of the cellar, yes it is hard labour intensive work but if it is done properly you can lower the ground level by up to 1 metre if required ( subject to water table level )
Once the level required has been achieved we can either put a new concrete floor in or a timber floor we decide one we establish the height of the water table before specifying the flooring materials to be utilized.
By doing this ground level reduction and installing new steps into the cellar previous cellars or basements that could not be renovated can be restored to dry useable living or storage space.
