Why do I need basement tanking?
Basements and cellars are more susceptible to damp problems because of their underground location, often below the water table. This increases the risk of damp because the surrounding earth retains water which is in constant contact with your basement’s exterior walls.
Over time, water can seep through the porous brickwork, resulting in a permanent damp problem that will make your basement or cellar unusable until it is properly waterproofed. We are your local basement tanking experts, with over 30 years of experience in damp proofing properties across Dorset and Hampshire.

What does basement tanking involve?
Basement waterproofing or ‘tanking’ as it’s commonly referred to, involves repairing and preparing the existing masonry substrate, making it resistant to damp and protecting the internal space by adding a waterproof barrier between the interior and exterior walls.
Our team will also look to remove any damaged plasterboard or masonry, stripping your basement back to its original building material. This layer is then cleaned and prepared thoroughly before the waterproof layer is installed.
There are a variety of different basement tanking methods available to protect from damp, but our team will discuss the most suitable option with you to ensure effectiveness and longevity from your damp proofing solution. Our property surveyors will assess your basement or cellar to understand its unique features and then make their recommendation based on their findings.
