When a retired couple from stoke on Trent decided to have their own house built, they decided they wanted a basement building to increase the footprint of the property. They contacted the team alongside their architect to look at designs to waterproof the basement space.
Wykamol, of course, explained about Bs8102 and Nhbc chapter 5.4 and the need for a dual waterproofing scheme and the relevant necessity to work to these codes.
Plans were sent to wykamol, and they quickly set about a robust design to waterproof the external and internal walls.
As this was block construction, Wykamol recommended their Universal mortar as a fairing coat to smooth the area first before waterproofing took place
They then recommended priming the walls and installed our Sure proof bba approved self-adhesive membrane system as a Type A barrier.
Wykamol also installed their Geotextile membrane as a protection board and as a drainage layer, this gave a robust waterproofing scheme on the external and a drained protection also
The internal walls were waterproofed using Hydra dry again this is a bba approved product and completed a full scheme for warranties.
When conducting waterproofing getting involved at design stage is always the best option to ensure that schemes can be suited to the correct use of materials and to determine if there are problems with the plans that may cause issues with the waterproofing also.
Working across the UK, Wykamol can attend sites and advise on waterproofing schemes from domestic to commercial premises. They can receive building plans and offer advice and waterproofing schemes to these which can be signed off by insurers for a NHBC warranty.
