Basement waterproofing services for homeowners in Poynton
Are you unable to use your basement because it is damp? Has your home been flooded in the past? Do you worry that your home is at risk of flooding? Would you like to be able to convert your damp basement into a useful living space? If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, our basement waterproofing services could offer the ideal solution.
A damp, dark basement is no good to anyone and whether you’d like to use yours for storage or as additional living space, it is vital that it is dry and free from damp. The majority of basements suffer from at least some level of water ingress; from severe flooding through to damp and condensation. Any level of damp has the potential to cause significant problems, not least in terms of damage to property.
Why basement waterproofing?
When a basement is flooded, it can take weeks for the water to drain away, followed by a further period of time – several months is not unusual – to allow the area to dry out completely. Extensive repairs will then be required such as the replacement of all plasterwork, flooring, woodwork and electrics. Not only is this kind of repair work expensive, it can be disruptive too – especially if damp and rot have taken hold and spread to the floor above.
Basement waterproofing provides a highly effective solution to basement flooding and damp by preventing moisture from entering the area and ensuring all floor and wall surfaces are dry. The most appropriate system for your property will depend on a number of factors, including the age and size of the property, the severity of the problem and whether you have plans to use your basement.
Our team of specialist basement waterproofing engineers have the skills and experience to design and install a system which meets your requirements perfectly. If you don’t want to use your basement and simply want to make sure that it is dry and protected, a sump pump station is likely to provide the solution. However, if you’d like to be able to use your basement as a storage area or living space, a cavity membrane waterproofing system will give you the dry floor and wall surfaces required. In some cases a combination of systems may be necessary.
