Waterproofing a basement is not only an extremely desirable endeavour, but likewise one which must be conducted up to the highest standard, which is exactly how we conduct our waterproofing.
What Is Basement Waterproofing?
Methods Of Basement Waterproofing
Within the industry, Cavity Waterproof Membrane solutions have come to replace the less reliable and 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. Using cavity waterproof membrane methods we can safely and quickly turn damp, wet basements into high quality, dry and sophisticated liveable spaces with minimal fuss and mess.
