Dorset Tanking Will Give Your Home Extra Space

Due to the rise in property prices, many homeowners are leaning towards creating additional rooms in their houses instead of moving. One way of doing this successfully is by converting your basement into a hospitable room. It could be used as an extra bedroom, study, or living room. To achieve this, you will require our team, who carry out the best tanking in Dorset

Basements that sit below ground level need tanking, Dorset customers, because they tend to suffer from damp. In fact, lateral damp penetration and hydrostatic pressure are caused due to a combination of gravity and the weight of the water above. For every 300mm of depth in saturated ground, the pressure increases by 30g per square cm, which means that the deeper your basement is below ground, the more likely it is to suffer with damp.

Our Dorset tanking service will be able to rectify this problem. Our team have a vast number of tanking and waterproofing options that will turn your basement into a dry room ready for use. Cementitious tanking systems are installed in properties where there is no risk of flooding or ‘free flowing water’. Cavity drain membranes use high density polypropylene and a ‘studded’ profile that lines the walls and floors, giving you a dry internal surface.

A coating can then be plastered over it to leave a smooth surface that can be decorated however you see fit. Our tanking in Dorset also extends to sealed systems that are appropriate for areas in which ‘free water’ is either known or suspected. While we predominantly use taking for basements or cellars, we can also install them as alternatives for damp proofing in structures above ground.
