Basement Tanking in London
We create waterproof systems that keep basements or cellars free from water & damp
Basements and cellars are usually situated either entirely below ground level or at least partially below the ground. To avoid any issues with basement damp, the space has to remain at a constant temperature with some form of ventilation.
External basement tanking systems are normally put in when the basement is first built. An allowance needs to be made for water to be kept away from where the walls meet the floor, since this is a weak spot.

Commercial and residential customers may require basement taking if they have:
- Underground Car parking
- Wine storage facilities
- Coal storage facilities
- Storage of any type of materials
- Space for a Heating system
- Space for an Air conditioning system
Choosing the right basement tanking service
The type of basement damp proofing required depends on your basement type
Types of London basements:
- Part of the floor could be lower, which is true basement space, and part of the floor could be above ground level with a door to the outside.
- Look-out basements have basement walls that extend above the ground level.
- Walk-up basements have exterior entrances through stairwells with basement doors.
- Underground crawl spaces are a type of basement where you cannot stand upright, usually for storage.
In all these cases, facilities would have to be in place to prevent damp problems occurring in the future.
