During a flood, water will always use the weakest components of a building to gain entry. This could be a variety of places, including doorways, basements and drainage systems. Although brickwork may initially appear to keep your property watertight, in the case of flooding, this can be severely compromised. The pressure of floodwater can cause water to seep through walls and floors at a startling rate, resulting in devastation. Fortunately, at Stormguard Floodplan, our Vaxseal Waterproofing solution can be applied to any exterior brick or stone work, to prevent floodwater seepage.

Guard Your Masonry from Floodwater

If your property resides in a flood risk, it is especially important to guard against water that can enter your home through brickwork. In a recent study, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors concluded that waterproof sealant, when applied by professionals, can significantly slow the ingress of water to masonry walls. Our experts at Stormguard will first assess your exterior walls for any damage, identifying any repointing or remedial work that may need completing. Once your walls are prepared, our Vaxseal Waterproof sealant solution is sprayed onto the brick or stone. As this sealant is clear in colour, there are no changes to the look of the masonry and your home will continue to look the same.

Vaxseal Waterproofing Technology

In addition to the invisible appearance of the sealant, our Stormguard Vaxseal Waterproofing technology also has a range of other benefits. The solution is non-toxic and 100% breathable, meaning that there are no resulting condensation issues. Once applied to your home, the sealant layer can last up to five years, protecting your walls from water seepage during a flood, as well as keeping your home insulated by reducing heat loss. To fully protect your home, we recommend combining waterproofing with our other flood protection solutions, including Flood Barriers, Air Bricks and Flood Doors.
