When it comes to making a basement or cellar waterproof, there are a number of challenges to overcome as they are much more susceptible to damp because of their underground position. Some may also sit beneath the water table too, meaning they are more vulnerable to damp problems than rooms above ground.
Croft Preservation are one of Bournemouth’s local specialists when it comes to general building services and damp proofing. With more than 30 years experience, our team is perfectly placed to assist you with tanking and waterproofing your basement or cellar, allowing you to transform it into a usable living space that is free from damp all year round.
Waterproofing a basement 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 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 ways to tank an underground space to protect it from moisture, but the team at Croft 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.
