Notting Hill homes gets a new basement waterproofed with the help of Wykamol

During the total renovation of this beautiful home in Notting Hill, the owners decided to dig down and create a new extended basement space. They chose Noble Structures to carry out the structural works. 

In turn, Noble Structures selected Simon Wootton from Advance Property Preservation to carry out the waterproofing installation. 

 Wykamol and Advance have worked together over many years, and Simon and his team are very well experienced in the waterproofing sector with CSSW qualification. 

A joint design was undertaken, including a Type A cement based crystalline slurry as a primary coat alongside a Type C cavity drain membrane system that incorporated BS8102 and a dual waterproofing scheme for the insurers. This would be linked to a perimeter drainage system utilising a specialist sump chamber.

As can be seen in the photos, our high visibility yellow membrane has been used. Simon and his team always prefer the colour membrane as taped joints are easier to see instead of darker membrane alternatives. 

Wykamol attended the site to check on progress as well as helping to design the scheme from the very outset of planning. 

The growth of these retrofit basements does not seem to be slowing. An advantage is with the with the planning application, as they are not visible and do not cause issues in conservation areas unlike above ground extensions.

As a British manufacturer, Wykamol are passionate about not creating plastic waste and all refuse material from the membranes is collected and recycled. 

Our membrane manufacturing facility is powered by 400 solar panels, this keeps CO2 emissions down compared to imported membrane systems.    

If you have a project why not contact the Wykamol Group and let us help provide an initial design for the scheme free of charge.
