Waterproofing in building construction
The waterproofing system adopted for a new-build requires great care and attention to detail as failure to make the correct decisions can have a major impact on the effectiveness of the building in the future.
At Wise Basement Systems we have the experience and expertise when it comes to designing and implementing integrated waterproofing systems into new build properties.
Waterproofing a new build – case study
The property below was a new home designed with a large earth retaining wall. This obviously causes concern with regards to waterproofing.
Earth retaining walls always require careful waterproofing consideration due to the build up of hydrostatic pressure. Preventing water ingress caused by this pressure will prevent dampness from the ground entering the structure.
In this case our team has opted to combine a cavity wall membrane and internal drainage system.
