The need for basement waterproofing is very common in wet countries like Scotland. Basements usually lie below the water table, which means they are susceptible to the hydrostatic pressure of ground water against the walls and floor, and this can often render a basement uninhabitable.
If you are considering a basement conversion then ensuring that your basement is water tight is essential.
The best way to waterproof a basement can vary. From modern basement waterproofing systems to more traditional methods such as basement tanking, every technique has its place, and the experts at Wise Basement Systems will figure out the best waterproofing solution for you.
In a modern basement waterproofing system, water and moisture are controlled, managed and channelled using drainage systems, such as water guard and drytrak, in combination with wall waterproofing membranes and advanced sump pumps.
These systems combine to divert any water ingress into a drainage channel before being pump away from the basement. The result is a lowering of the level of the water table and an ease of pressure on the basement walls. This leaves a clean, dry and habitable basement.
Tanking a basement involves creating a physical barrier to prevent water ingress. This barrier usually takes the form of waterproof cement or some other type of lining such as tanking slurry. Tanking has been a popular waterproofing method for decades and, depending on the structure and the grade of waterproofing desired, it can be an excellent way to prevent water entering a space below ground level.
