What is basement tanking?
Basement tanking is simply a term used to refer to basement waterproofing. A range of systems are available, from basement sump pumps designed to work away in the background, removing excess water, through to waterproof membranes to provide dry flood and wall surfaces. The most suitable type for your home will depend on how you use your basement, as basements which are unused usually benefit from a sump pump, whilst basements which are in use tend to benefit from a membrane system. Our team are happy to provide you with further advice and guidance.
Prevention is always better than cure
At best a damp or flooded basement is an inconvenience but at worst it can cause long-term damage to your home and possessions. The water in a flooded basement often takes weeks to drain away, resulting in saturated fixtures and fittings which need to be replaced. Walls, floors and electrics tend to suffer irreparable damage, ending in a huge bill to put things right.
With this in mind the most cost-effective solution is to ensure that water is unable to enter your basement in the first place and this is where a basement tanking system can prove invaluable. Many homes in Horsforth were adversely affected by the Boxing Day floods of 2015, with significant damaged resulting from deep floodwater. The Boxing Day floods were caused when the River Aire burst its banks and although flood defence plans for the area are currently in the planning stages, installing a basement tanking system is a sensible way to protect your home from future problems.
Our team of fully qualified basement waterproofing engineers have decades of experience in the design and installation of robust waterproofing systems in basements of all sizes. We will work closely with you to design a system to suit your lifestyle to ensure your home is protected from flooding and to give you peace of mind.
Make the most of your basement
Basements have the potential to create light and airy living spaces, designed to increase the floorspace in your home and enhance your lifestyle. If your basement is damp, dark and unloved, we can help you transform it into anything from a kitchen/dining room, through to a playroom or home cinema. A basement conversion is the ideal way to give yourself the extra space you need without the expense and upheaval of moving to a larger house.
