Basement tanking services for homeowners in Stockport
‘Basement tanking’ is the term sometimes used to refer the structural waterproofing systems designed to protect basements from flooding and damp. Whilst Stockport isn’t one of the highest flood-risk areas in the UK, thanks to its location on the banks of the River Mersey, many homes are prone to flooding, particularly those in the town centre and Cheadle, Foggbrook and surrounding areas.
The majority of housing in and around Stockport is Victorian, with many suburbs consisting of pre-war 1930s properties, homes built in the 1950s and new build estates. Here at Pure Basement Systems we provide highly effective basement tanking systems for homes of all ages and whether your house has been flooded in the past, or you are experiencing problems with a damp or flooded basement, we can help.
Basement tanking solutions designed to protect your home
A permanently damp or flooded basement will not only cause short-term damage to a property and possessions, it can also have a long lasting impact upon your home. The vast majority of homes in the UK – period properties in particular – simply aren’t designed to cope with the today’s rainfall and with this in mind, finding an effective, long-term solution is vital.
UK properties were traditionally building into damp or wet earth and as a result can easily become affected by dampness and water ingress, with cellars and basements particularly susceptible. Basement tanking systems are designed to provide a barrier between below ground walls and water, in an attempt to prevent water or dampness getting into a property.
Whether you currently use your basement for storage or are considering converting it into a valuable additional space, here at Pure Basement Systems we have the expertise to ensure it is dry and free from water and damp. We have a team of highly qualified CSSW engineers who will design and specify a robust and highly effective basement tanking system, installed to protect your basement.
