Converting a damp cellar or a basement can increase your living space as well as the value of your property. Properly waterproofed, your basement can be converted into any room you want. We offer two different systems for waterproofing cellars so that we can ensure we use the technique best suited for your job. For further details, call Anchor Building Services (Lancashire) Ltd in Blackburn.
This durable system uses a cement-based powder mixed with water. The walls and floor are cleaned and rendered. Two coats of the slurry are then applied, followed by a screed applied to the floor and plaster to the walls. We can also take care of your woodworm and wood rot problems.
A membrane is fixed to walls and ceilings by special sealed fixing plugs, as well as to the floor. Walls can then be covered with plasterboard or plastered directly. A drainage facility is included unless one wall is above ground level.
Often, the best solution is a combination of the two systems. If you would like to increase your living space or are concerned about moisture in your basement, give us a call today to arrange for an expert consultation. We’ll visit your home and determine which solution is best for you.
