Protectahome design and install Basement Waterproofing solutions for all types of new and existing buildings. The earlier we are engaged on a project the better, as we can then ensure the right type of Basement Waterproofing system is selected and the installation scheduled to meet with the construction or refurbishment programme.
The British Standard BS8102 Code of practice for protection of structures against water from the ground, defines three principle groups that Waterproofing systems fit into. These are Type A (barrier – previously Tanked) protection, Type B (structurally integral) protection and Type C (drained) protection.
Protectahome consider each project individually. We then select an appropriate Basement Waterproofing system from a range of systems and processes that we know are reliable and are capable of supporting the environmental grade (as defined in BS8102) being designed for. Depending on the end use of the building and the type of Basement Waterproofing system selected, additional measures may be required to achieve and maintain the environmental grade. For example, this may include the provision of mechanical ventilation and/or drainage. These support measures will be identified by our surveyor working as your Waterproofing Design Specialist.
A number of Basement Waterproofing design principles are common to new and existing buildings. This means it doesn’t matter if the basement or cellars end use is as a retail leisure area, domestic accommodation or the conversion of a pavement vault or coal hole. We conduct a full assessment of requirements to ensure that our design is capable of delivering the environmental grade required and we deliver dry, useable basements, with a guarantee from a company with over thirty years experience.
