Cellars and basements that are below ground are susceptible to penetrating damp (not to be confused with Rising Damp). When water has penetrated through the walls, waterproofing becomes necessary.
What is Tanking?
Do you think your property needs basement tanking? The waterproofing of cellars and basements is a highly important step in safeguarding your property from the damage that water can cause to a building.

Benefits To You

This will result in a healthier home environment, a new habitable living space, lower heating and cooling costs, prevention of structural damage, and in some cases a reduction in costs of insurance claims in relation to water damage.
