This extremely effective system utilises an ‘egg box’ style design, cavity drainage membrane. The membrane allows any water penetrating through the fabric of the building, to flow in a controlled manner behind the final wall covering, into concealed irrigation channels and thereafter into a sump. The water is then pumped into standard drainage.
Concrete Repair, or ‘tanking’, are terms that describe a process used to prevent damp or water penetrating walls. It is therefore frequently the technique chosen for basements, lift pits and swimming pools. This is true for both new build and existing structures. Tthis is an area of work where we believe we have unparalleled experience.
Wet Rot is a relatively common occurrence and can usually be dealt with by removing the source of dampness. However, the true Dry Rot fungus (Serpula lacrymans) is serious and requires immediate attention to avoid extensive damage. It is malignant and will spread even through thick walls in search of timber to attack.
During the last 26 years Harrison Preservation Ltd. has developed a range of tools and techniques that enable us to confidently tackle almost every type of timber problem. Where faced with joist end decay on major or bressumer timbers, that are required to be retained, one of our fail-safe techniques is the use of Epoxy Resin Repair.
This is a aspect of home ownership that affects millions of properties in the UK. As a result, over the last 26 years, we have installed and guaranteed damp proofing in over ten thousand domestic homes. A prime factor is that our housing requirements have changed significantly from the days before fridges became commonplace, c1960.
At Harrison Waterproofing, as long time, authorised TAM injection repair specialists, we’ve successfully repaired water leakage in basements, lift pits, concrete and brick tunnels, bridges, concrete reservoirs, multistory car parks and shafts.
Where the water pressure is particularly high, where noise and dust are likely to cause concern or where it’s required to retain the existing features of a building, we generally recommend a Cavity Drain Membrane (CDM) system, to control damp or water ingress. With a CDM system any moisture is allowed to pass through the masonry.
All of these factors will ultimately influence the type of treatment carried out. For this reason our Surveyor will visit to investigate the affected areas. Based on their experienced analysis, we will then select the most appropriate treatment such as insecticide, fungal decay eradication, traditional or resin repair.
