Basement Tanking in Cornwall
Tanking & Basements
Due to modern financial pressures, people are searching for alternatives to moving house. One of the most popular alternatives to this is to develop the basement or cellar into a living space instead and thus expanding their current home. In new builds, architects are more commonly specifying such in-ground spaces, demonstrating both their appeal and their fantastic functionality in providing useable living space.
Tanking with mastic asphalt is the foremost method of protecting areas below ground level against the penetration of ground or subsoil water. This protection needs to be given specialist consideration, as there are many factors to consider, and therefore needs to be designed and installed by expert contractors.
PMA's expertise in creating properly engineered solutions above ground also works for basements and other underground areas. Creating an effective membrane can allow regular occupation or use for basements, cellars and storage areas where they are not otherwise suitable. This applies both to pre-existing walls and to new construction; the choice of an effective sealing coat or installation of a separate barrier system requires the advice of experts.
