How Basement Tanking Works

When our team first start carrying out work for basement tanking, it is crucial for them to first inspect and survey the area to identify any existing or potential water seepage or dampness. Once this has been done, we thoroughly prepare the basement walls by cleaning them, to ensure the tanking membrane will adhere properly.

There are many types of membrane and basement tanking, and our professionals will decide which is best for your basement and situation. When this has been decided by our professionals, the membranes will then be stuck onto the walls, ensuring the basement is watertight. We recommend carrying out other forms of waterproofing to finish off the basement protection.

Why Basement Tanking Is Important

Basement tanking is crucial for safeguarding your property against water damage and preserving its structural integrity. Without proper waterproofing, basements are susceptible to water infiltration, leading to mold growth, rotting, and compromised building materials. By implementing basement tanking, you create an impermeable barrier that prevents water from seeping through walls and floors, protecting your foundation and ensuring a dry and safe living space. This not only enhances the value of your property but also provides the opportunity to convert your basement into usable areas, such as bedrooms or home offices, increasing the overall square footage of your home.

Furthermore, basement tanking prevents health hazards associated with damp and humid environments, as it discourages mold and mildew growth. It also safeguards your valuable belongings stored in the basement, reducing the risk of water damage and potential loss. Additionally, basement tanking can save you from costly repairs and renovations in the long run, making it a cost-effective investment. Overall, basement tanking is a vital aspect of property maintenance, ensuring a safe, comfortable, and resilient living space for you and your family.


Signs Your Property May Need Basement Tanking Solutions

Recognising signs that indicate the need for basement tanking solutions is crucial for safeguarding your property from water damage. If you notice damp or wet walls, or musty odors, on the basement walls, it could be an indication of water infiltration. Cracks in walls or floors, puddles or standing water, and peeling paint or wallpaper are additional red flags that your basement may require waterproofing. Rust or corrosion on metal fixtures and visible mold growth are also signs of excessive moisture and a potential need for basement tanking.

Addressing these issues promptly is essential to prevent further damage and maintain the structural integrity of your property. Hiring a professional basement tanking service can help identify the source of the problem and provide effective waterproofing solutions tailored to your specific needs. By taking early action, you can protect your property from water-related problems, enhance its value, and ensure a dry and secure living environment for years to come.
