Structural Waterproofing

Structural Waterproofing

Beadle Property Care Ltd also specialises in waterproofing damp and wet basements and below ground areas. We can transform these areas into usable dry rooms for our archive, retail, commercial or residential customers.

Converting unused space, whether for commercial or domestic benefit, creates a healthier environment to work or live in and can also add great value to your property.

Working to British Standard BS8102:2009, our qualified surveyors will recommend the treatment system which best suits your property. This is often in the form of a cavity drain membrane system which directs water entering the basement into channels. Water will then be pumped away or diverted to an existing drain.

Cavity Drain Membrane Systems

The system incorporates the introduction of a drainage channel system to the perimeter walls, being directed into a sump/pump system. The appropriate cavity drain membrane is fixed to walls/soffits utilising waterproof fixing plugs. A cavity drain membrane is then laid loose to the floor slab and joined at all junctions using waterproof sealing tapes, giving a dry internal surface. Water penetration is then controlled and removed from the property via the sump/pump system, alleviating/controlling water vapour and damp pressure. Alarm systems are also available to the pumping system, for example, when there may be a power failure and high water levels. Finished surfaces are dictated by the membrane being applied and the end use. This can involve walls receiving a plastered finish, direct to the membrane or a dry lining system, which can also incorporate insulation for thermal benefit.

Floors can receive tongue and groove chipboard flooring laid direct to the membrane or a sand and cement screed. Both finishes can incorporate insulation. Such finishes can be dictated by numerous factors which our surveyor will be pleased to advise and guide upon.
