From that point on we can decide what will be the most efficient waterproofing system. We offer a 10 year guarantee on our basement waterproofing systems.

Our basement convertion Glasgow team were engaged in surveying a property in Glasgow's West End. The owner of the property was interested in making a significant increase in the amount of living space in the house. Our job was to specify the waterproofing requirements – and make sure that the basement stayed dry after refurbishment. A cavity drainage system was put in place – this manages water penetration and removes it to the drains via a sump and pump setup. It now keeps this property safe from damp and flood water. It’s also easy to inspect for any problems.

Why Property Waterproofing Is Important

During the cold winter months in the UK, the weather is dreadful. Every year we all experience the extreme winds and wet nights. With this comes lots of property damage. Water intrusion can damage entire structures. Some of which can be catastrophic. Once water finds its way into a building it likes to travel. This will affect the exterior first, and then the interiors. To avoid such a situation, you need to ensure that your house or building is properly waterproofed. 
Basement waterproofing ensures the long life of a property. If you ignore or forget the waterproofing stage while constructing a building, it can cause major long term damage due to dampness. Water damage can ruin the entire structure, especially if the water finds a way into the property. Water damaged walls and property fabric create an unhealthy indoor environment which can also result in complex health issues. Therefore, every foundation needs to be waterproofed to ensure its strength against unrelenting damp condition in the ground. Basements and cellars are a key area where water can easily damage your property. For this reason, basement waterproofing is vital to keeping your home protected against water damage.

The price of basement waterproofing systems is cost effective due to the benefits it will yield. Our property is one of the most cherished things and largest investment in our life’s.
