The importance of a flexible waterproofing service

Good waterproofing design is essential, but even your best laid plans can sometimes need modification. All construction sites are dynamic systems and it’s important for the site technicians to be trained and experienced so they can recognise a potential problem. They must know what to do and who to consult when this occurs. Our staff are dedicated and diligent – just what’s needed on a busy site.

Clients might change their specifications, or unforeseen events may occur on site – this is where our extensive experience is vital. Dealing with contractors and sub-contractors and making sure that the waterproofing element of the contract is not compromised means you can relax, knowing we’re on hand to lend a hand. These are the kind of things that matter when providing basement waterproofing for new homes, so they matter to us too!

‘Type A’ and ‘Type C’ basement waterproofing methods (BS8102 nomenclature),  are generally used, including Vandex’s superb range of cementitious materials which we’ve successfully applied all over Yorkshire for years. We also work with our key suppliers at Fosroc; Safeguard and Visqueen.
