Domestic Waterproofing

Case Study - Domestic Waterproofing

Floodsense Contracting were asked to go and look at a basement in Kings Lynn by the owners who had for years, suffered from a wet, smelly and unusable space beneath their home.The main issue was the building being in a conservation area and so was listed.

We proposed using a membrane system with channels, sump and pump to create a dry habitable space for the homeowners to enjoy.

As the floor was laid with cobbles which formed part of the listed buildings features, we decided to lay an 8mm membrane directly over these prior to pouring premixed concrete to level the floor in order to protect them for future viewing if required.

The Solution

  • - Laying of an 8mm protective membrane over listed features
  • - Pouring 5 ton of premixed concrete to level flooring
  • - Creation of new sump and pump chamber
  • - Installation of drainage channels and new sump pump
  • - Installation of wall and floor membranes
  • - Plastering of all walls
  • - Laying of moisture resistant tongue and groove flooring
