Basement Waterproofing Exeter
As basements are usually below ground level, they are prone to water damage if not protected. Waterproofing your basement is the effective way of protecting your property and belongings. Having the right system in place for your home will help to give you the peace of mind, that your home is protected.
Waterproofing Your Basement
Most basement areas will have a protective layer on the outside masonry, but this can deteriorate over time, as above this is usually below ground level and can be troublesome to keep up to date.
One of the best ways to combat water damage is to put in waterproofing on the inside of the basement area. Which in turn allow better maintenance over time. Adding a cavity drainage membrane will give you this assurance.
What Is Cavity Drainage Membrane
A cavity drainage membrane is a system to protect your basement. This membrane has a space behind, that acts as a dry lining to the walls, ceiling and floors. Any water that makes its way into the cavity will then be drained away in a canal system and pumped away to ensure there is no water damage to the basement.
After the system has been installed, the walls can then be plastered as usual and the room is a valued addition to your home, giving anything from a social space to an extra bedroom.
