ProTen Installation of a Below Ground Waterproofing System
Installation of an external waterproofing system to an external wall of a new build domestic basement in the Northampton area. Fully compliant to BS8102:2009.
As basement waterproofing contractors, ProTen Services were invited by a local architect to submit an estimate to install a designed external application, below ground waterproofing system. ProTen Services were subsequently instructed by the main contractor to carry out the installation of the agreed system.
A lime suppressant was applied to the concrete block walls to reduce the risk of ‘free lime’ effecting the system. A two-coat waterproofing slurry was applied to the wall/floor joint area with a waterproof fillet at the base of the wall using a specialist mortar.
A polymer modified bitumen thick film sealant for waterproofing external structures was applied in two-coats to which a glass fibre mesh was installed over the wall fillet and into the internal corners. The external waterproofing membrane was then applied which provided a 4-layer high compression strength membrane system. Specialist fixings were applied to seal the waterproofing system.
A fully BS8102:2009 compliant and watertight basement external wall, ready for the main contractor to backfill and then apply finishes.
