APP: The Experts In Waterproofing Systems

Basements are beginning to make a long awaited return to fashion due to living plots reducing in footprint and increasing in value. This means the call for effective basement waterproofing has grown in order to accommodate a living space. Protecting the property against water ingress is the key to opening up additional living space. Without this waterproofing the basement area could be liable to excessive damp that can cause health problems and structural issues.

The British Standard 8102:2022 as mentioned above gives guidance on the three different waterproofing systems available. These are: Type A, Type B and Type C.

Type A Waterproofing System:

This is better known as tanking as a type of barrier is applied to the walls and floor of the underground structure either internally or externally.

Type B Waterproofing System:

Including waterproofing additives to the concrete used in the formation of the walls and floors when building the basement.

Type C Waterproofing System:

This is the most commonly used system for existing properties as it can be implemented with less intrusion than the previous two forms. A cavity membrane is applied to the walls and floors of the basement in order to manage water ingress and channel it to a sump pump. The pump then extracts the water away from the building safely.
