Bournemouth tanking and structural waterproofing
At Prokil, we have provided a complete tanking and structural waterproofing in Bournemouth service for domestic and commercial properties. We only ever use ‘Type C’ cavity systems to waterproof basements and partially below-ground structures – the results of which will create a habitable environment in your property.
‘Type C’ cavity drain systems are more effective than their predecessor the ‘Type A’ systems as it diverts and manages water seepage and penetration. This system has a studded plastic membrane and is secured to your floors and wall. As a result, water will be deflected into a perimeter drain and will be discharged into a drainage point/sump and pump. The drain system has several internal options like free standing dry lined metal frames or a membrane directly applied to the plasterboard.
Traditional systems or ‘Type A’ systems used a mixture of materials and systems to hold back the hydrostatic water pressure. The downside of these ‘Type A’ systems is that they caused issues for properties such as:
- Extensive damage to property
- Catastrophic failure of system
- Build-up of water pressure
- Created weak points/defects
