Cellar tanking systems designed to protect homes in Bowdon from damp and flooding
If you live in Bowdon and are concerned that your cellar is at risk of flooding or damp problems, you are not alone. Thanks to Bowdon’s location in between the River Bollin and Timperley Brook, homes in the area might be at risk should river levels rise. In addition, as cellars are often prone to at least some level of damp, many properties suffer from water ingress and nuisance moisture.
Whether your home has been flooded in the past, you are concerned about flood problems in the future, or would simply like to ensure your cellar is dry, our cellar tanking service is perfect for homeowners in Bowdon.
Prevent flooding and damage to your home
If the worst happens and your cellar is flooded, it can take weeks for the flood water to drain away, with a further length of time required for the area to dry out. Extensive repairs will then be necessary and it is likely that all plasterwork, flooring and woodwork has to be replaced. In addition, standing water in your home can present a health hazard whilst also leading to long-term problems such as damp and rot.
With this in mind prevention is obviously better than cure and by investing in a cellar tanking system now, you could save yourself time, money, stress and disruption.
Cellar tanking specialists in Bowdon
We offer a range of scaleable, highly-effective solutions, designed to provide your home and family with long-term protection:
- If you have no requirement to use your cellar and nuisance water ingress is a recurring problem, an automatic sump pump station is likely to be the best solution. Designed to be left to it’s own devices, a sump pump will work away in the background, removing water before it has a chance to enter your cellar.
- If your basement is on the large side, it might also be necessary to install an underfloor perimeter drainage channel, designed to collect water around the perimeter of the room before carrying it to the sump pump.
- Dry wall and floor surfaces are obviously vital if you would like to convert your cellar or use it as a dry storage area. In situations such as this, our team will fit a sealed cavity drainage membrane system. Designed to provide a strong inner lining which will prevent damp and water vapour, this type of system will ensure your walls and floor stay dry and free from damp.
- New build cellar projects often call for an innovative approach and it may be necessary to install more than one type of system. Our team are happy to provide further advice on this if required.
Our team of surveyors and designers are highly experienced in this type of work and are qualified to meet CSSW standards. Cellar tanking work must be carried out by a specialist contractor such as Pure Basement Systems and we’ll use our extensive experience to design and install a system which provides you with highly effective, robust protection.
