As basements are below ground and therefore, often below the water table, they can be more susceptible to damp problems, often leaving them uninhabitable. That’s unfortunate, as a basement can be an ideal way to expand your living space and increase the value of your property.
Many older buildings have cellars that can be turned into utility areas, home offices or playrooms, for example. Other properties may be suitable for a cellar conversion, provided any works meet basement waterproofing regulations.
Tanking - or basement waterproofing - prevents water ingress. It works by creating a barrier or lining around the basement using a special coating which, when correctly installed, makes a cellar area completely watertight. That’s why it’s important that this work is carried out by experienced professionals such as Ryedale Remedials Limited of Dumfries.
