Basement water­pro­ofi­ng products?

The call for converting basements continues to grow in popularity as homeowners seek a cost-effective and reliable method of creating extra living space within the home. Basement wa­ter­pro­ofi­ng plays an essential part of any cellar conversion project as it is the key factor in eliminating all possibility of water ingress in order to protect the basement and maintain a dry, warm and healthy area. 

Being underground, a basement is more susceptible to the possibility of unwanted water ingress. The type of basement system to use is therefore an important con­si­dera­ti­on as a variety of methods are available.

basement waterproofing productsCement tanking slurry are one option for a basement tanking solution; it works by blocking water from entering a building under hydrostatic pressure. It is is vital the walls are prepared thoroughly before applying two coats the slurry onto the masonry. Once the final coating has hardened, a coat of plaster is applied to protect the tanking layer from damage in service.

One of the most effective and commonly used system is the instal­la­ti­on of water­pro­ofing membrane on the walls and floors of the cellar. This cavity drain membrane effectively seals the area and, behind the scenes,­ manages the flow of water to an exit drain; providing consistent protection against the damaging consequences of unwanted water entering the home.
