Steps to Creating a Dry Basement
Stage 1 – Wall Membrane
Choosing the right membrane for your surface is the first stage, and will form the backbone of your basement-waterproofing project. If we take Newton Membrane as an example, we stock everything from Newton 410 Geodrain to 805 Newtonite.
Newton 400 System – Vertical Drainage down to land drain
Netwon 500 System - Internally applied waterproofing system; cavity drain waterproofing when ingested water is captured and diverted by the membrane out of the property
Newton 600 System – Flooring membranes
Newton 800 System – Damp proofing membranes ready for plaster or render.
Netwon 500 is a full basement waterproofing system and it one of the leading membranes in the country for a range of waterproofing systems.
Stage 2 – Drainage
Once you have a wall membrane sorted, you need to choose how the water leaves the property and choose a drainage system. Channels of Newton Basedrain is a popular solution, and we stock a range of options and sizes.
Stage 3 – Sump System & Pumps
When the membrane and drainage systems have removed the surplus water from the property, you need to choose a system to physically remove it. Contact our expert team for more information about how to select the right sump systems or browse our full range of sump pumps.
