Protect your Basement from Water Damage
With effective waterproofing, you will maintain a structurally-sound foundation that will last a lifetime. This allows you to keep your investment at its top value.
If you are using your basement as storage space, ensure that your belongings are protected. Irreplaceable family items can get damaged by water, so think ahead, as you will never be able to get those precious items back.
Basement waterproofing can be achieved through blocking the passage of water into the building with external waterproofing or cementitious waterproofing and controlling the ingress and flow of the water to a pre-determined evacuation point by the use of cavity drainage systems.
John Newton Membranes and Delta Membranes are designed to control the passage of water using cavity forming membranes, drainage channels and sump and pump water evacuation systems. These come in a variety of sizes and types. Some membranes are plain, designed for flooring while others have a mesh welded on the face for direct rendering or for fixing dot and dab plasterboard systems.
These are used to secure Perma-Seal membranes to building substrates and to fix battens or tracking systems. P-Seal Quick Plugs are designed to give a rapid fix into various substrates. Plugs can be installed into either 10mm or 11mm holes depending on the substrate.
P-Seal Quick Plugs are quick and easy to install. Simply drill at 10mm or 11mm hole (depending on the substrate) to a depth of 70mm. Next, put the P-Seal Quick Plug into the hole and use a large head hammer to gently drive the plug in, making sure that a good even seal is achieved.
