Basement Waterproofing Is A Risky Business ….. Choose your contractor wisely!
Our CSSW qualified specialist surveyor, Michael Foster, explains why EXPERT ADVICE is crucial when it comes to waterproofing your basement.
Inherently most basements are subjected to, at best dampness at worst water ingress, at some point in time unless they have been adequately treated against such perils.
Given that most basements are completely below ground, if you wish to use the basement it’s critical to ensure that it is waterproofed correctly to protect not just your investment but also your personal effects that may be stored there.

At Pure Basement Systems we often visit basements where the client has paid for a basement conversion and / or a basement waterproofing and there has been no real importance placed on the integrity of the waterproofing system.
During and after periods of heavy rainfall the ground around the basement becomes saturated and unfortunately water floods into the basement – if adequate waterproofing hasn’t been installed ….
Protect yourself by contacting a specialist basement waterproofing / conversion contractor who can provide you with the following:
