What is Basement Waterproofing ?

Basement waterproofing or tanking is the process of installing materials that prevent moisture entering any below ground rooms making them suitable for habitation.

All existing plaster-work and damaged masonry is removed, exposing the original brickwork, concrete or masonry of the building.


Any salt contamination on the walls and floor is removed or neutralised.

A 3:1 sand and cement render is applied approximately 10-20mm deep, a damp proofing slurry and a membrane sheet impervious to water is fixed before a smooth plaster top coat is applied to leave a surface ready for decoration.

This will leave a room completely sealed and protected from ground water.
