Damp walls are a common problem in cellars and basements because the earth surrounding the walls is often saturated with water. It is not just cosmetic issues like damaged paint and damp patches that can result from water ingress but it can also lead to damp related issues like black mould and dry rot. This moisture carries salts and minerals with it that will damage any fishing touches you have applied to the wall.
Tanking, Waterproofing or cementitious waterproofing is the application of a waterproof material directly onto walls, floors or even the ceiling. The barrier created will prevent moisture getting through the coated surface preventing water damage and damp.
This can be done by using our range of tanking slurry to create that impermeable waterproof barrier, giving you piece of mind that your finished wall will stand the test of time.
