BASEMENT WATERPROOFING SYSTEMS
Structural Repairs provides a highly professional Basement Waterproofing service, using a complete range of dedicated high-quality cavity drain membrane systems, basement tanking and associated products. Building regulations require that all floors and walls below ground level are waterproofed, to stop damp rising and entering a building’s structure. Keeping moisture out particularly in basements with a high water table or old buildings with porous cellar walls is a problem that needs to be handled by experts, with a proven track record, who can find the best solutions for the task.
BASEMENT WATERPROOFING SERVICES
Cavity Waterproof Membrane solutions have come to replace the less reliable traditional tanking methods. Conventional basement tanking involved applying waterproofing materials, like a sheet membrane, bitumen or liquid waterproofing materials, directly onto the basement walls and floor. Over time this method of waterproofing has failed in many instances, under the pressure of the groundwater. That’s why we at Structural Repairs have become highly trained and experienced in basement tanking and using the far more efficient higher quality cavity membrane methods, which creates a drained depressurised cavity behind an inner waterproof layer that channels away any moisture that penetrates from outside the walls.
Cavity Waterproof Membrane
Using cavity waterproof membrane methods we can safely and quickly turn damp, wet basements into high quality, dry and sophisticated livable spaces with minimal fuss and mess. If you are thinking of extending your living space by renovating and waterproofing your basement or excavating a new underground space, contact Structural Repairs for expert, friendly advice and a competitive quotation.
