Basement Waterproofing Systems
Their are two types of basement waterproofing systems commonly used in existing structures.
Type A Waterproofing Systems
Adhered waterproof membranes or “Type A” waterproofing systems are commonly:
- multi-coat renders
- cement-based coatings
- bituminous paints
- epoxy coatings
This form of waterproofing provides an unbroken barrier to water. These systems are applied to clean walls and floors and are usually protected and held in place by floor screeds, renders, plasters or other “loading coats”.
Type C – Cavity Drainage Systems
Cavity drainage systems or “Type C” waterproofing usually utilise:
- Pre-formed high-density drainage membranes
- Drainage channels
These are designed to direct any water entering the structure back out in a controlled and managed way.
Typically, cavity drain membranes are installed to the walls and floors and these direct water into drainage channels. The channels then allow water to be directed to sumps or drains so that it can be removed safely from the building.
Members of the PCA who specialise in structural waterproofing are able to consider the nature of the building and the client’s design requirements to ensure that the correct method of waterproofing is selected and executed to the highest standard.
