What Is Type C Waterproofing?

Type C waterproofing is a specialised method employed in the construction industry to ensure buildings and structures remain watertight and resistant to water ingress. This approach is commonly used in below-ground areas, such as basements, tunnels, and subterranean car parks, where the risk of groundwater seepage is high.

Type C waterproofing, also known as “cavity drain membrane” or “drained cavity” system, relies on creating a physical barrier within the structure. It involves the installation of a cavity drain membrane, typically made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or other waterproof materials, on the inner surfaces of walls and floors. These membranes create a space or cavity between the structure and the waterproofing layer.

The key principle behind Type C waterproofing is the management of water ingress rather than attempting to prevent it altogether. Any water that enters the structure is channelled into a drainage system within the cavity and then safely pumped away, often through a sump and pump system. This approach allows for some flexibility, as minor cracks or imperfections in the structure won’t necessarily compromise the waterproofing, making it a reliable choice for areas prone to movement or structural shifts.

Additionally, Type C waterproofing systems can accommodate insulation and finishings, making them suitable for creating habitable or usable spaces in basements. It is essential to consult with experienced professionals in waterproofing and construction to determine the best Type C system for your specific project, as designs and requirements can vary based on factors such as the groundwater level, site conditions, and local building regulations. In conclusion, Type C waterproofing is a proven method that offers effective protection against water ingress in below-ground structures while providing the flexibility to adapt to changing conditions.

Does Your Property Need Type C Waterproofing?

Type C waterproofing may be the solution you need if you’re dealing with water ingress and dampness issues on your property, especially in below-ground areas like basements and cellars. If you’ve noticed signs of moisture, damp walls, or even standing water, it’s essential to address these problems promptly to prevent further damage and maintain the structural integrity of your property. Type C waterproofing is a comprehensive approach that creates a robust barrier against water penetration, ensuring a dry and secure environment. We can assess your specific situation and recommend whether Type C waterproofing is the right choice for your property.


Type C Waterproofing Process

The Type C waterproofing process is a systematic and advanced method designed to keep your property watertight and free from dampness. This comprehensive process typically involves several key steps. First, a thorough assessment of your property’s needs is conducted to determine the extent of the water ingress issues. Then, a combination of innovative materials, such as membranes and drainage systems, is installed to create a protective envelope. This prevents water from entering the structure while managing any existing moisture. The process is executed by skilled professionals who ensure the installation meets the highest standards. Our Type C waterproofing process is tailored to your property’s unique requirements, providing a long-lasting solution for a dry and healthy living environment.

Understanding Waterproofing Types

The key difference between Type A, Type B, and Type C waterproofing lies in their respective approaches to preventing water ingress in construction. Type A, commonly known as “barrier” waterproofing, involves creating a physical barrier using materials like membranes and coatings to keep water out. Type B, or “structurally integral” waterproofing, focuses on making the structural elements of a building watertight, typically through the use of water-resistant concrete or admixtures. In contrast, Type C, or “drained protection” waterproofing, employs a holistic system that manages and controls water ingress through a combination of materials, drainage systems, and expert installation to protect the entire structure. Type C is particularly well-suited for below-ground areas, such as basements, where water management is crucial to maintaining a dry and secure environment. London Property Preservation offers specialised solutions for all three types of waterproofing, tailored to your specific needs and the unique requirements of your property.
