Newton Basement Waterproofing

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.

Four Stages of Basement Waterproofing

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.

State 4 – Floor Membranes

The final stage and element of your waterproofing project – the Newton 600 range is floor membrane – click here to view the Newton 601 Slimline Flooring Membrane which is currently only £160 ex VAT for 40m2
