Wykamol waterproof an historic home in St Johns Wood

When this amazing house on Cavendish Avenue was sold, the new owners decided to create a mammoth 2 story basement under this home which is having a 2-year full renovation on it.

This was a complicated basement build with swimming pool and health suite on basement level 2 as well as family rooms on basement level 1. This project was a challenging waterproofing project for Simon Wooton and the team from Advance Property Preservation.

A dual waterproofing scheme was designed for both levels of this large basement creation and as such Wykamol and Simon decided the best course of action was to use Wykamol’s 2 BBA systems HydraDry and Cavity drain membranes.

The new concrete structure was first sprayed with Wykamol’s Crystalline slurry, Hydradry with 2 coats of this Type A system which was used as a primary resistance and waterproofing coat.

Once this had cured a Type C waterproofing cavity drain membrane system including perimeter drainage, was installed throughout the 2 floors to give the building a dual waterproofing scheme.

Being able to design these projects and working with contractors like Simon enables Wykamol to get involved with some amazing projects commercial and domestic across the UK

The team at Wykamol cannot wait to see this amazing house finished and the basements being used to full use. If you have a project anywhere across the UK or Ireland, please do not hesitate to contact Wykamol and have a chat about how they can help design your project.
