Tanking is just one of several flood defence methods available from the team at Stormguard Floodplan, allowing for security and peace of mind when it comes to defending your basement from becoming victim of ground water. Our tanking method is 100% compliant with the Code for Sustainable Homes and is even suitable for use in listed buildings.
Tanking involves structural waterproofing, utilising several layers of a multi-coat, pore-blocking slurry mix. The mix increases tensile strength of the walls by way of the polymers that enhance adhesion. Tanking ensures the maintenance of a dry environment, continually withstanding external water pressure. Tanking is designed to last. Look no further than Stormguard Floodplan for our tried and trusted method.
Alternatively, another good option for securing the flood defences of your basement includes the installation of a sump pump. Sump pumps are built into the lowest part of your property and force rising ground water out and prevent flooding. Sump pumps are capable of pumping 2650 gallons of water every hour.
