Experiencing basement waterproofing issues within your property is a very common problem. As basements and cellars often lie below the water table, they are susceptible to the pressure of ground water against the walls and floor that can often render a basement or cellar uninhabitable.
If it is the case that you are considering a basement conversion or cellar conversion, then ensuring that your basement is water tight is essential. Without adequate basement waterproofing, your basement will be susceptible to ground water movement to the internal surfaces.
Options for basement waterproofing
Basement waterproofing options vary from a blend of traditional to modern basement waterproofing systems and techniques. More often than not however, it would have been a traditional method such as basement tanking or external basement waterproofing that would have been installed within the basement that unfortunately may have failed allowing water and moisture to penetrate into the basement.
Modern basement waterproofing
With modern basement waterproofing systems, rather than creating a physical barrier allowing for a build up of water pressure against the basement walls, water and moisture is controlled, managed and channelled using modern drainage systems such as water guard and drytrak in combination with advanced air gap wall waterproofing membranes and advanced sump pumps below floor level that not only pump water away from the basement, but have enginnered drainage wall linings to divert water to our drainage system. The result is the lowering of the level of the water table and easing the pressure on the basement walls.
