Signs and Causes of Water damage in Basements

Basement Tanking & Waterproofing Protection that will last

The signs of a flooded or wet basement are visible from the interior of the house and bring along a damp smell. It is also crucial to ensure that all downspouts, gutters, and other type of systems of your home are efficiently working and are succeeding in keeping the water at bay from your house. The soil around your home base should direct the water away from the walls and not towards them.

Sometimes the basements are made structurally great but can’t manage the water drainage. So they lack the good drainage system or fail to create slope aside from the base. 

Here are some of the indicators that show you may need basement waterproofing:

  • Water trickling out of walls
  • Standing water on the basement floor
  • Humid air, damp
  • Condensation on the cold floor and walls in summer
  • Blistering and Staining of wall coating

If you observe any of the signs mentioned above, give our waterproofing experts a call to treat your damp basement right away.

Basement Tanking waterproof system

Basement waterproofing systems can refer to many different concepts, but it is always necessary to prevent mould and moisture accumulation within homes or commercial spaces.

These basement waterproofing systems are a combination of structural membrane, drainage, and pumps that capture, channel, and pump away from any water ingress. These parts can work completely “behind the scenes,” so they are perfect for projects such as cellar conversions or waterproofing a basement flat. 

Cellar and basement Waterproofing is the procedure undertaken when the water builds up in the basement surrounding the ground, raising the water table and resulting in hydrostatic water pressure. The pressure caused by water against the wall and floor of the basement will often lead to leaks, cracks and ultimately leads to dampness. 

If the water penetrates the basement through joints, cracks, breakouts on the floor, it can lead to weakening the structure.

Basement waterproofing can mean the difference between a dry, habitable, and safe basement and a damp, dank, and miserable space. So, if you want to convert your property’s basement into a functioning space, then basement damp-proofing is imperative. 

If you are looking to convert your basement into a practical room, call us now! We offer a wide range of basement waterproofing membranes and systems for your home. Including pumps, cementitious tanking slurries, and physical membranes.

Basement tanking for your home

Basement tanking involves applying a  slurry coating or completely waterproof membrane onto either internal or external side of walls, floor and sometimes ceiling interior parts of a basement or cellar. The render material gives a seamless, smooth wall surface that looks good and provides moisture control. The tension created will stop water ingress underground.

The protection that basement tanking can provide depends on a few factors. For instance, the levels of hydrostatic pressure near the property foundation and any external movements or vibrations will help us decide the type of tanking needed for your property.

Basement tanking makes the basement watertight. 

Advanced Damp has a team of damp experts that specialise in basement tanking and waterproofing. While it may be more costly than other methods, tanking can be an extremely effective way to keep the walls in your home dry.

How does basement tanking work?

The cementitious tanking system ultimately offers a smooth, aesthetically pleasing concrete wall surface and offers protection from water ingress and subsequent damp issues. Basement Tanking is a Type A waterproofing system that comes to the recommendations from British Standards Institute for structural waterproofing. It means that this type of waterproofing system forms a barrier to water ingress without actively removing any water. 

The cement tanking slurry must be applied to undamaged stable walls for it to work appropriately. Therefore, exceptional attention is given to the weak points in the space, including the joint where the wall is connected to the floor. 

Our qualified team of basement tanking experts at Advanced Damp install it with maximum protection, creating a watertight dry space ready for homeowners to live in.

However, there are situations when tanking is not a suitable solution for your property. it is susceptible to failing or cracking in the following scenarios. A damp survey carried out prior to installation is essential. This will remove any chances of incorrect installations.
