Flood Damage Repair – Case Study
Richardson & Starling solved a basement flooding situation in the Dumfries area. Due to an incorrect tanking system design and installation by the original builder the property was flooded after heavy external rainfall. A new cavity drain system was installed, with waterproofing membranes applied to walls and floor. A sump & pump system was also fitted to collect and flush the water out of the property to keep the living area dry.
