Basement Waterproofing

Basement Waterproofing Service

Damp areas underground need to be treated differently to above ground areas and so it is important to get specialists. They will have experience working in all the conditions they are likely to encounter.

Dean Webster, the company director and CSRT CSSW qualified surveyor, would visit the property and inspect the underground area, then write up his observations and provide you with a detailed report on all findings, treatments suitable, and a breakdown of costs.

As a specialist waterproofing contractor you can be assured of the problem being correctly diagnosed and a suitable specification of treatments being provided to resolve the underground damp problems. Different damp problems require different treatments; we can identify these various methods.

As well as creating a dry space we can provide electricians, plumbers and other trades to create the full project to completion. Alternatively, we can work alongside your other chosen contractors.

A long term guarantee would be provided for these specialist damp works. We really do recommend you chose a BSWA or PCA member to ensure you make the right choice – Call us now on 01732 884535.

Flooded Basement Solutions

How Can We Help With Basement Flooding?

We regularly assist home owners to manage the water entering their cellars / basements – some properties are located below the water table and when there is heavy rainfall the basement floods – sometimes up to waist height.

In these instances subject to the amount of water ingressing one pump station or a number of pump stations can be installed at strategic positions. These sump chambers are connected to a network of base drainage channels which divert the water to the stations. Membranes are then applied to walls and floors as required. Insulated dry linings and floor screeds can then be installed to provide a finished area ready for use.

Tell-tale signs of penetrative damp

  • Membrane Breakdown – a breakdown or lack of a physical barrier in the membrane
  • Erosion or Cracks – Splits in the current cementitious render system
  • Water Pressure Change – Change in the water pressure caused by defective/failed external drains, sewers or pipework

Pump Servicing

Once the pump stations are installed it is imperative that the whole system is maintained including the pump stations and the base drainage channels. We recommend these are carried out once or twice annually – subject to each individual installation.
