Waterproof Membranes for Basement Conversions

Basement Conversions are becoming more and more popular but it is important that when converting a basement careful consi­dera­ti­on is taken with basement water­pro­ofi­ng. Twistfix supply high quality wa­ter­pro­ofing membranes which are ideal for making the basement water tight.

When someone is looking for more space and they have extended their property onto their allocated footprint then they wrongly think that for more space they need to move to a bigger house. In reality all you need to do is look down. A basement can provide you with the extra living space you require and so there is no need to move house.

The waterpro­ofi­ng membranes which Twistfix supply are used by a number of professional basement contractors and specialists within the basement conversion industry. They work because water ingress is best controlled by using a cavity drain system. The studded wa­ter­pro­ofi­ng membrane helps to isolate the wet cellar walls from the wa­ter­pro­ofing membrane mesh or plaster board surface and therefore there is a gap between the two.

Water drains from the wall into the channels and sump before being pumped away silently via channels into a normal drainage system. In most cases along with the sump and pump an alarm is fitted so that if the water ever reaches a dangerous level within the basement then this will notify the owners and appropriate people to take action before devastating events occurs.

Water­pro­ofi­ng membranes are simple to install and work can proceed with little disruption. Your building control officer will ensure that the basement conversion comply with BS 8102:2009 for wa­ter­pro­ofing structures below ground.

In addition to our water­pro­ofi­ng membrane we also supply a number of accessories which you may require too such as:
