Basement floor membranes can be used for two main purposes - isolating moisture sensitive flooring from dampness in the floor slab and as part of a basement waterproofing system.
Waterproofing a Basement Floor
If you are looking to waterproof a basement floor then you need to consider a full basement waterproofing system. As part of this system, you should include floor drainage membranes. These membranes will tend to have larger stud profiles like the PermaSEAL Floor Cavity Drainage Membrane in order to cope with large volumes of water ingress.
Waterproofing basement floors is made easier with the latest range of high quality cavity flooring membranes now available from the likes of Newton as well as our own PermaSEAL range.
Isolating a Concrete Floor
Floor membranes used for isolation purposes are much thinner like this PermaSEAL 1 floor membrane. Waterproof floor membranes can be installed before the concrete slab is fully dry (must be walkable) in order to reduce the length of time it takes to complete a project. Permagard stock a range of waterproof membranes for concrete floors.
All waterproof floor membranes are strong and robust, with a life expectancy of at least 30 years.
