Basement Waterproofing for your property
Damp Stop offers a specialist and unique basement waterproofing service, commonly referred to as ‘tanking’.
Converting your basement or garage area can create more living space adding value to your home.
By keeping any water and damp away from your basement you will restrict it from any mildew or mould build up.
When mould and mildew build up they can cause serious health problems to your family. Solving this issue is done in one of two ways: Render Coatings and Cavity Drainage Membrane systems.

Information on Basement Waterproofing…
Cementitious tanking systems have been carried out for years but cavity drainage membranes are proving a good alternative. These work by allowing the water to penetrate the wall structure but then diverting it from the cavity to a suitable drainage point. This prevents any pressure build up on the internal construction, and allow the structure to breathe and dry out. We lay the membranes on the floor and then they are fixed to the walls with plugs and sealing materials. There is little, if any, preparation to the substrate.
Wall surfaces can then be dry lined or plastered directly, floors screeded or a floating dry board installed.
Typical areas of use:
Existing basement waterproofing
Listed building where alterations may be required
Damp Stop have expertise in both systems and can offer impartial advice on which system is best for any given circumstance.
