Residential waterproofing is an essential service for every home owners looking for a permanent solution to their wet and leaky basement.
This service is best achieved by installing appropriate heating to the tile reduce relative humidity to an acceptable level depending on the Usage Grade requirement. This is achieved by instituting the appropriate ventilation, dehumidification, or air conditioning systems.
In basement refurbishment or upgrading situations, waterproofing systems will invariably need to be applied internally. It is very rare that walls can be exposed to allow an external positioning of the system and, on the few occasions when they can, it is usually impossible to apply the membrane under the structure
To design an appropriate waterproof system, the structure needs to be surveyed and assessed to establish the following:
1. The intended usage of the basement area.
2 The existing form of construction.
3 The existing ground conditions, e.g. height of water table, contamination.
4 The suitability of the structure to accept the chosen system.
Having investigated and established the form of construction and the soundness of the structure.
Having fully assessed the structure, a decision needs to be made as to whether a cementitious coating, a multi-coat render, or a cavity drain membrane is to be applied.
We apply the general principle and maintain that waterproof coating must form a continuous, unbroken membrane over the entire area being treated.
