Why should you invest in Bournemouth basement tanking?

If you’re looking to sell or expand your living space, converting your basement can be a great way to add room and value to a property. From games rooms, bedrooms, luxurious bathrooms to home cinemas, your basement is a prime spot to install the one thing you’ve always wanted in your home or property.

But it’s not just a simple case of painting the walls and installing your furniture of choice.  It is absolutely imperative that you employ an approved company like Prokil to conduct your basement tanking Bournemouth, otherwise your basement will continue to be cold and damp and structurally unsound.

How does basement tanking in Bournemouth work?  Basement Tanking Bournemouth

Bournemouth basement tanking works by either blocking or filtering water out from the inside of your walls. At Prokil, our preferred method of basement tanking Bournemouth is called ‘Type C’, which rather than blocking the water, manages the water flow between your wall using waterproof barriers.

In more detail, ‘Type C’ basement tanking in Bournemouth involves managing the water flow between your walls through installing specialist studded plastic waterproof membranes. Water filters through the membrane to a perimeter drain and is then ejected using a sump and pump system.

‘Type C’ basement tanking Bournemouth is more beneficial than ‘type A’, which other Bournemouth basement tanking companies may use. ‘Type A’ uses a concrete mix to create a solid barrier blocking exterior water from entering. However, a build-up of blocked water between your exterior and interior walls can cause an increase in pressure and crack the concrete mix that lines your walls. Thus, water can enter and cause all sorts of damage to your brand new room.
