About Cellar Tanking

Known as either basement or cellar tanking, the process is one of the most traditional forms of waterproofing and is often used within older properties. In the past construction of buildings used stone foundations with little to no mortar between the gaps, allowing water to freely enter the building. Preventing leaks can easily be achieved by installing a lining onto these walls, otherwise known as tanking. This stops unwanted water from accessing the building and gives you the potential to use the space within your home or business.

Typically, tanking results in a smooth and seamless wall surface which provides control and protection. Liquid waterproof coating is applied to the floor and walls to create a ‘tank’, resulting in permanent waterproofing. As it is easy for water in the earth surrounding your home to enter through gaps, it is important to do all you can to prevent this.

The cost of tanking will depend on the space you have within your basement. If you would like to know more, do not hesitate to get in contact with us.

Do I Have Rising Damp?

Rising damp can cause havoc within any home or business, which is why it is important to be able to spot the signs before it is too late. If it is left untreated, then long-lasting issues with your property’s stability and structure can occur. The value of your home can also be affected, as well as your finances.

Being able to recognise rising damp can help you to prevent these risks before they happen, saving you money and keeping your home in top condition. It normally appears in the flooring and surrounding inner walls, so it is worth checking these. Damp may appear on the stonework or skirting board and it is important to find the source of this. Once this has happened, then it is important that you get a professional on board to help you fix the issue.

Some common signs of damp include:

  • Staining and ‘tide marks’
  • Peeling wallpaper
  • Decaying skirting boards
  • Salts appearing within plaster
  • Black mould
  • Crunching sound when touching wall
  • Salts forming on outer brickwork
