Low Level Penetrating Damp can adversely impact on the environment in your property, but there are various treatments available to correct this potentially harmful occurrence.
We offer Single Membrane and Cementitious Tanking system solutions to treat problems caused by high external ground levels. These solutions will provide a dry internal wall surface, making the cellar or basement rooms of your property habitable again. Our current treatments are designed specifically for rooms below ground level.
If the problem is caused by building defects, these can be easily repaired by a competent builder and/or plumber. Once the wall has dried out and there is no damage to plaster or decay in timbers, then you can re-decorate.
If the problem is caused by 'low level' lateral penetrating damp (below two metres in height), the most effective solution is to lower the external ground level abutting the wall. This is often impractical and very costly. We offer effective solutions to treat damp problems caused by high external ground levels, using Single Membrane and Cementitious Tanking solutions. All our Tanking treatments are covered by a 10 year guarantee, which can be passed on to future owners of the property.
