What is Tanking?
Tanking is the term often used to refer to the waterproofing of basement. Tanking is a completely waterproof membrane applied over a surface, preventing the entry of water. It can be useful in homes with basements which may be flooded due to flood water coming in from above. It can also prevent water coming in from below if the water table rises. Tanking gives you peace of mind that your whole home is protected. You can see one of our experts being interviewed about Tanking by the BBC below.
The two most common wall tanking methods for waterproofing basement walls are:
Structural Waterproofing. This is a multi-coat, pore-blocking slurry mix. It is sandwiched between two coats of dense cement render. The tanking slurry contains polymers that enhance adhesion to the wall and increase tensile strength. Once applied the tanking is able to withstand external water pressure. A dry environment is maintained due to a physical barrier stopping water entering the basement area through the walls.
