Tapco has been established since 1971, consequently we have vast experience in specialist damp proofing, which is essential when dealing with basement damp and you can be confident knowing that our works are carried out by highly skilled and trained technicians to ensure an end result that will endure well into the years ahead.
It is critical that, if you intend to make your basement habitable, the first thing you must do is ensure it is entirely dry. Damp frequently affects basements raising serious concerns, as they are below ground and it is vital that there is sufficient ventilation and consistent temperature to ensure that conditions do not prevail which might cause problems such as Dry Rot (Serpula lacrymans) which we know causes devastating destruction and compromises the integrity of a building. We can undertake just the specialist damp proofing ready for your own contractors to dry-line or plaster or the entire project from start to finish.
