When a specialist basement contractor who builds and waterproofs basements wanted help with the waterproofing of a Notting Hill home, they chose the team at Wykamol to help with a design and specialist drawings to waterproof this large new basement space.
The scheme needed a dual waterproofing design to give two forms of waterproofing to conform to BS8102.
Wykamol HydraDry, a crystalline cement based waterproofing slurry, was used as a Type A system followed by a Type C cavity drain membrane system linked with a perimeter channel system incorporating flushing points.
Wykamol were on site every step of the way to check on progress and to sign the project off for insurance warranties.
These amazing homes in areas like Notting Hill. have become a favourite to conduct these structural works of digging underneath the property. The excessive costs of property in these areas makes the creation of a basement space invaluable in pounds per square feet of space created.
Wykamol and their design team work across the UK and Ireland, looking at basement plans and designing these schemes to create robust waterproofing schemes.
Care must be taken when dealing in spaces like this to establish not only the waterproofing but drainage and pumped drainage designs for what the client wants to use their property for.
Collaborating with specialist pumped drainage manufacturers Wykamol can also help design the pumped drainage for areas like bathrooms and kitchens which are below natural drainage areas.
Every step of the way Wykamol can take care of these issues and formulate an action plan to tackle all these situations.
