There is a variety of waterproofing solutions suitable for a variety of basements. Each of these solutions typically uses one of two waterproofing methods: membranes or structured waterproofing, otherwise known as tanking. The damp proofing products that we advise on include Wykamol’s Cavity Drainage damp proof membranes and cement-based tanking products.
Plugs and Tapes
We can advise on a large variety of plugs and tapes products. The plugs products in this variety include super brick plugs, plaster plugs, COB plugs and plug seals, while the tapes products in this variety include Wykamol butyl tape, Wykamol butyl rope, Wykamol Overseal, DAB collars and big-selling Wykamol Corner.
When installing Wykamol Cavity Drainage membranes, it is crucial to also provide an appropriate drainage solution. Mechanical drainage must be used here due to the common impossibility or inconvenience of natural drainage. The sumps, pumps and alarms products we can advise on include BlackSump™ and SumpFlo™ products.
We can advise on a huge variety of Magna sewage systems products. These products are fully automatic packaged pumping stations that have been specifically designed for pumping foul and waste water when gravity drainage is impossible or uneconomical to install. We can also advise on Aquaflush and Powerflush systems.
Wykamol provide many different surface treatment products, including many that can be applied as surface coatings etc. to help to protect masonry. The surface treatments products that we can provide advice about include SBR latex-based liquid damp-proofing paint Technoseal DPM, water repellent Enviroseal and salt neutralisers.
Effectively ventilating a basement is always worthwhile, as making its air dehumidified, conditioned and breathable can hugely increase a basement’s worth as a living space. We can give advice about many different ventilation units, including Wykamol Homevent units which use the Positive Input Ventilation principle, core drill ventilator Vario BM 418 and Black Hole Vent BM 720 and 725 units.
