Water Proofing and Tanking

Many properties have basements, cellars and vaults that were never designed for modern living. They can suffer from rising and penetrating damp, even flooding.

DTS offers a range of waterproofing and tanking systems that can transform a damp basement / cellar into a dry habitable living space. We offer both cementitious tanking and waterproofing using cavity membranes. We will sometimes combine both damp proofing systems to waterproof a basement / cellar.

Cementitious Tanking

  • Cementitious tanking utilises a system of cement based waterproof coatings to prevent penetrating damp caused by capillary movement of water moving through earth retaining walls.
  • The tanking coatings can be plastered to provide a smooth surface to decorate.
  • Cementitious tanking is used in situations where there is no free flowing water or risk of flooding and in small areas where there is an isolated damp problem.
  • Benefits of cementitious tanking:
    • Can be used in small areas and on convoluted surfaces.
    • Does not require a drainage system or a sump and pump.

Cavity Drain Membranes

  • A studded membrane lines the walls and floors to provide a dry internal surface.
  • The walls can then be dry lined or plastered, and the floors can be screeded or overlaid with tongue and groove flooring.
  • Sealed systems are used in conjunction with drainage or sump and pump where there is active water or flooding.
  • Ventilated systems are used where there is no visible water and in situations where conventional damp proofing methods are inappropriate.
  • Benefits of cavity drain membranes:
    • No need to incur expense and mess removing existing sound plaster.
    • Redecoration can normally be carried out quickly as there is no need to wait for system to cure.

Both of these systems can be designed to comply with BS8102, which is the code of practice relating to waterproofing underground structures.
