Domestic Heaven Basement Conversion and Waterproofing

When a homeowner in the leafy suburbs of Manchester decided they wanted extra space they contacted one of our registered installers (Basements North West)

Tony Saville managing director contacted the waterproofing team at Wykamol and asked them to attend site to look at this project and design the scheme to waterproof the basement. 

The property a large, detached dwelling had 4 chambers to the basement and the client anted a home cinema, bar and home cinema. 

Wykamol came up with a specification of Type C Cavity Drain Membranes linked into a modular drainage system and specialist double pumped chamber and monitoring alarm system. 

The project took 3 months from start to finish included in this was new concrete floors throughout the scheme. 

As can be seen in the photographs our high visibility 20mm floor membrane is on the floors and our 8mm membrane to the walls also. 

Being on site to advise the contractor and check on progress means that the installer is confident all the way through the project. 

Our CSSW team of technical managers can advise in all matters relating to these kinds of projects and making the products ourselves in the UK means the contractor gets a great value British manufactured product which is more cost effective than European equivalents. 

The scope of works on this job goes to show whether it is a domestic conversion or a large commercial project the team at Wykamol can help all the way along from conception stage to finish sign off the job. 

Contact the team at Wykamol to get us to help on your next project and rest assured there will not be any hidden dangers like some projects we get asked to look at from contractors who are unregistered and do not understand the implications of drainage issues below ground.
