Basement / Cellar Tanking

Tanking Systems

Tywi Damp Proofing use a range of membrane and tanking products to prevent lateral penetration of damp & water in below ground situations.

Following the British Standards 8102:2009 'Code of Practice for Protection of Below Ground Structures Against Water from the Ground' Chapter 5.1 'Waterproofing of Basements and Other Below Ground Structures', we can design & install an appropriate system to meet your needs. 

Membrane Systems

Tywi Damp Proofing have been dealing and working alongside Delta Membrane Systems, one of our main suppliers, for over 15 Years covering from small domestic jobs, large commercial sites, both new and existing builds.

We can tailor design a system that we believe to be the best performing for the individual situation and not just take a 'one for all' design approach.

We can provide a system to the floor, walls and even the ceilings. When using a Type C taking system,  a means to depressurise the ground water. This can be carried out by either. a natural fall to a soak-away,  or by installing a sump and pumping system to take groundwater. We can also install a sump to handle waste from a bathroom, utility room or even a kitchen. Extra features include: a battery back up to power both pumps, so that if there is ever a power failure you will still be dry; remote monitoring means your pumping station will be looked after and we will know before you do that there is a problem with the pumps.

 

Why make my basement water proof?

Both fungi and wood boring insects enjoy a damp environment. Where there is a suspended floor above a void, problems below ground create the perfect environment for the growth of fungi and the spread of wood destroying insects. If treatment is delayed for any reason the damage will be much more than cosmetic. The fabric of the building will be damaged and its structural integrity threatened to a point where it will become unsafe.

More and more people are looking to expand their homes, looking for more space for a growing family. Sometimes it is possible to build an extension off the property, some may decide to convert the loft space into a habitual room. But what if you have a basement that’s not being used. This wasted space could be a cheaper solution to gain extra space within your property.

For commercial properties extending down to the basement could create a perfect room for storage, maybe a room for IT equipment or just an extra office.

Tywi Damp Proofing can tailor to every need and we can provide you with the best performing solution. Working alongside other trades, we can provide you with the best possible outcome.

All works can be covered with a Manufacture Guarantee if applicable.
