For those residing on a flood plain, you may know only too well about the importance of waterproofing your property. Water damage from flooding not only damages your personal possessions, but can also ruin home furnishings and lead to structural issues with your property. Therefore, it’s important to assess the areas of your home where water may cause damage, and carry out necessary prevention measures.
With the development of specialist waterproofing compounds, there is now an easy way of protecting your external walls from moisture damage. Our professionals at Stormguard Floodplan are experts in applying our specialist Vaxseal Waterproofing wall sealant, to protect against water that may enter into your brickwork.
The Stormguard Vaxseal Waterproof wall sealant is a clear treatment applied on top of your ordinary bricks, so as not to alter the appearance of your home. Following suggested remedial work to brickwork or stonework, such as repointing, our professional team will carefully spray the non-toxic sealant. With a lifespan of up to 5 years, you can be sure that your property walls will be well-protected against any ingress that may happen in the event of a flood.
How Does Waterproofing Work?
Suitable for application on brick, stone, stucco, or concrete walls, the compounds within the sealant form a silicone barrier in the microscopic holes within walls. These microscopic holes are prone to allow the passage of water and moisture through, in the case of flooding. Following our Vaxseal application, water and rain will simply roll off the brick or stonework instead of penetrating through. As well as providing a waterproof membrane, the sealant can reduce thermal loss by adding a layer of insulation, in turn lowering your energy bills.
