Cellar tanking and damp-proofing services for homeowners in Stockport
Stockport has a relatively eclectic mix of period housing, some of which were built in the Victorian era, suburbs of 1930’s and 1950’s properties and other more modern housing estates. Whether your home and most importantly your cellar, is five, fifty or one hundred and fifty years old – damp and water ingress can work its way through to your property regardless of when it was built.
Stockport is a town built around its rivers; the Goyt and Etherow. Foggbrook, Marple and Cheadle areas sit along the banks of both – amongst other less at-risk areas – and are at a high risk of flooding. Here at Pure Basement Systems we specialise in cutting edge, highly efficient cellar tanking techniques to counteract a multitude of damp and water ingress issues.
Cellar tanking services from Pure Basement Solutions
‘Cellar Tanking’ refers to the process of structurally altering cellars and basements to protect them against water ingress, whether from flooding or damp. The fact of the matter is that the vast majority of UK homes are not built with the correct damp-proof course, or are built in areas prone to flooding. As a consequence, lots of properties are subjected to permanent periods of dampness and flooding, which can cause serious damage to both your property and possessions.
Where cellars and basements have been built into damp earth, they can quite obviously be prone to rising damp and flooding. Cellar tanking systems are purposefully designed to provide a protective barrier between the surrounding damp and your property. Our bespoke cellar tanking services are completely adjustable, and because no two cellars are the same, we will tailor our services to meet your project requirements.
Through utilising cavity wall membranes alongside a sump-pump to extract residual water, we can completely transform your damp basement into a completely dry, useable space. Modeern families and households can really benefit from the extra space gained; from a subterranean bedroom with en-suite, through to home gym or playroom, an underground kitchen to a secluded home office – the possibilities for conversion are limited only by the size of the space and your imagination.
