Unused cellar transformed into modern kitchen with help of Wykamol waterproofing membrane

A house in Cheshire now has a stylish kitchen occupying what had been an unused below-ground space.

Basement waterproofing

Mindful that its basement location might make it susceptible to damp or water ingress, the owner of the property in Hale called in longstanding Wykamol partner, Basements North West, to offer their expert advice.

Their proposal included lowering floor levels to increase head height, while walls were to be taken down to maximise the use of space in the basement, including opening up a partly filled-in chamber.

After completing the necessary wall removal and extensive underpinning, the basement was tanked out with Wykamol Pure Virgin HDPE Membrane, which is certified 100% waterproof. The project called for 8 mm membranes to walls and 20 mm to the floors with a drainage channel and pump system to manage and remove any water ingress from the cavity drain membranes.

The membranes supplied were produced at the Wykamol factory in Lancashire, the only plant in the UK which manufactures Type C membranes for waterproofing in line with BS8102.

The Wykamol range includes membranes for use in every situation either internal or external, which allow the application of an array of finishes.
