Basement waterproofing experts in Ripon, North Yorkshire
Whether your property is a Georgian town house, a Victorian farm house or a Tudor Terrace – the chances are that your cellar is prone to damp or even flooding. Both of these issues are common occurrences for our customers in Ripon which is why here at Pure Basement Systems, we have developed a combination of techniques that allow us to completely waterproof your basement.
Having been in business for over 25 years, you can trust us when we say, our techniques are long lasting and reliable. As each project is different from the next, we would need to carry out a basement survey of your property. This allows us to ascertain what approach to take with your cellar and offer you a true and fair quotation, but at no cost to you.
Ripon properties with cellars susceptible to damp and flooding
The age of housing in Ripon varies greatly. Many properties built in the town centre date as far back as the 12th century, during this period the cities wool and cloth industries grew, with the wealth from those industries came the accompanying growth in construction. After the Plantagenet reign was over, the city made a name for itself producing riding spurs during the 16th and 17th centuries, the wealth of which saw a period of building which slowed as the industrial revolution dawned.
Building throughout the 19th and 20th century remained steady, resulting in a veritable melting pot of residential accommodation across the cities region. Built around the River Ure and two of its tributaries, those period properties with cellars (of which there are many) often suffer from damp issues, water ingress and can be prone to flooding.
We have years of experience in waterproofing the basements in all manner of period properties. Whilst every waterproofing project is different – we have the knowledge to know which procedures are appropriate for the age, building material or ground conditions of your property. When we’re finished your home above ground will be safe from the threat of rising damp, and you will have a basement you can use for years to come.
