What is structural waterproofing?
Structural waterproofing is sometimes referred to as basement tanking and it involves various methods to ensure protection against rising and penetrating damp. While typically done during construction, outdated or failed methods may require fixing or updating over time. Retrofitting structural waterproofing is a relatively straightforward process.
Our approach begins with a thorough survey to assess the extent of waterproofing issues and identify weak areas in existing measures. Based on this, we develop a customised plan that may include basement tanking or damp proof course installation. In Berkshire, property owners often rely on us for waterproof membrane installation or the application of a waterproofing slurry. These proven methods effectively control moisture ingress, ensuring a dry and secure environment.
What are the benefits of structural waterproofing?
Structural waterproofing offers invaluable structural protection, safeguarding your home from the potential damage caused by water ingress. If left untreated, this can lead to concealed and extensive damage, only revealing itself when the structure starts to deteriorate. To mitigate the risks of moisture ingress in Berkshire, we recommend the implementation of reliable structural waterproofing measures.
Another advantage of this process is the potential to reclaim previously unused space within your home. A damp and mouldy basement or cellar is unlikely to be an appealing area, but by effectively combating dampness and moisture, you can effortlessly transform it into a welcoming and functional space. Imagine having a second lounge, playroom, home office, or even a home cinema at your disposal. This can add value to your property or simply make your home more functional and sufficient for your needs.

How does the structural waterproofing process work?
We use a range of methods to help waterproof structures. The most common methods of basement tanking in Berkshire include waterproofing slurry application and impermeable membranes. We will help you to select the method that will be more effective for your space and the least likely to fail.
The first method entails the application of a thick waterproofing slurry to the walls and floors, which is then cured to create an impenetrable seal. Alternatively, we can install waterproof membranes on the walls and floors, allowing moisture to be channelled and pumped out of your home. Both methods have proven to be highly effective in creating a completely waterproof basement area.
