Solum and sub floor waterproofing
Experiencing damp issues from your solum or sub floor is a very common problem. Your underfloor can be a breeding ground for damp, rot and animal problems and can be costly to repair.
Prevention of these problems before they begin is recommended as not only will solum or sub floor waterproofing prevent these problems, it will improve ventilation and also save you money on energy bills as warm air will be retained in your home and cold air will not be able to flow up through your solum & sub floor.
Solum & Sub floor waterproofing solutions
A solum & sub floor vapour barrier can be installed which will keep out any moisture and help retain heat in the property and not allow any cold air to rise up through the property. Our CleanSpace encapsulation system completely blocks off any porous concrete walls, solum or sub floor vents, pipe penetrations and various other gaps and holes. This ensures that the solum or sub floor stays completely dry which will stop any risk of dry rot and wet rot, damp and infestation.
