Any rooms below ground level are susceptible to damp because patios, pavements and gardens are above the room level, allowing damp to seep in. Basements and cellars can make cosy, comfortable living spaces and should be utilized to their full potential, however some people find themselves with a damp problem in these areas.
The basements and cellars in old buildings sometimes have failed or non-existent damp proofing, leading them to become damp and the surrounding materials damaged.
Tanking refers to the practice of damp/waterproofing any subterranean rooms such as cellars and basements. Tanking can be implemented as a whole new system, as a repair for a failed damp course or after a significant flood.
At DH Damp Proofing & Timber Limited we use one of two techniques when tanking properties across London and Berkshire, either a cavity drainage system or a cementitious system.
Below you will find a full explanation of what each technique involves.
