What is structural waterproofing?

This refers to any process that can protect a structure against water ingress. Building materials and moisture do not mix well, and a damp property will also be difficult to keep warm and comfortable. To counteract this, we implement waterproofing measures to stop moisture getting in from the ground water, and from areas like the roof and walls.

To help protect your home from water damage and moisture ingress, we can start with a damp proofing survey to understand why you are facing a damp problem. Homeowners also bring in our team at the start of a basement conversion or extension to help ensure the foundations are protected before investment money in decor and new furnishings. Rest assured that all work carried out will cause minimal disruption to you and your neighbours.

What are the benefits of structural waterproofing?

Structural waterproofing is not just a recommendation, it is a requirement. A property without structural waterproofing in place will not last long. It will quickly become damp and then this will create the ideal conditions for mould and mildew to thrive. This can lead to other complications like dry rot and issues with your cavity wall ties. With structural waterproofing measures in place, you can protect your property investment.

Once completed, your home will be dry and comfortable, and this can help to bring down rising energy bills. A damp home is more expensive to heat, but once you have dealt with your damp problem, this should no longer be an issue. Structural waterproofing can also allow you to make the most of the space in your home by converting areas like your basement or cellar into functional living spaces.

What’s involved in the structural waterproofing process?

There are many methods for retrofitting damp proofing measures. This is good news, as it means we don’t need to dig into your foundations to implement essential repairs or to install new waterproofing measures. We might recommend a new damp proof course, which is a chemical injection that creates a barrier against moisture. We could also recommend basement tanking for below ground rooms.

For basements and cellars, there is also the option to install waterproof membranes along the floor and walls. We can then direct excess moisture to a pump so it can be directed out of your home. This is ideal for locations with a high water table where you commonly find water pooling on your basement floor.
