Repairing a wet basement - step by step

Repairing a wet basement - stage 1

1. The picture to the right shows a wet basement cleared before the application of the water management membrane. As you can see, dirty water can be seen running down the side walls and pooling in the corner.

2. Picture 2 shows the water management membrane applied to the walls to channel water down to the waterguard channels along the floor which in turn, route the water to a pump to be taken away from the property.

3. Once the membrane, waterguard and pump has been completed/applied, a choice can be taken as to whether to plaster or plasterboard the walls. In this case plaster has been applied direct to the membrane.

4. In the 4th picture, you can see that the area has been plastered and decorated. As it happens, this area is used for commercial purposes but the membrane is equally suitable for domestic decoration and use. It's now water and damp proof.
