The Best Company to Call for Basement Tanking Bournemouth Has to Offer
Basements are not a common feature here in the UK, so if your property has one, consider yourself lucky. A basement provides you with loads of extra space – as with loft conversions, a basement usually spans the entire width and length of the property. But more often than not, basements are riddled with damp as they haven’t been properly waterproofed. This is where basement tanking in Bournemouth comes in.
The goal of basement tanking is to waterproof any underground rooms, preventing water absorbed through porous brick walls from entering the basement. Damp proofing is necessary as basements are subterranean, so they are surrounded by earth, which always contains moisture. For years, we’ve provided Bournemouth basement tanking services which are second-to-none.

Basement tanking is a skilled process which involves using a non-porous, waterproof material to coat the walls and floor. Particular attention must be paid to joins between the walls and floor, as this could provide a point of entry for moisture leading to mould forming. If the current surface is unsuitable, for instance, because of old or damaged brickwork, we’ll create a new surface over the top that’ll allow the tanking treatment to bond.
When completing basement tanking in Bournemouth, we’ll proceed to plaster over any surface, providing an excellent finish that’s ready to be painted, tiled, or wallpapered over. Once we’re finished, we’ll give everything one final inspection to ensure that damp doesn’t find a place to worm its way in.
