BASEMENT & CELLAR SURVEY
If you are looking to convert your basement or cellar into a habitable space, or simply need to fix a damp problem below ground level, then why not book a survey with Wise Basement Systems and let one of our qualified experts take a look?
A survey from one of our experienced and qualified surveyors will let you know the full extent of any basement & cellar problems you may have as well as any treatment necessary.
WATERPROOFING REPAIR – DIAGNOSTICS
At Wise Basement Systems we not only plan and design waterproofing systems, we also diagnose problems in basements, cellars and existing waterproofing systems.
Our surveyors are fully trained and qualified and have access to the latest diagnostic equipment to make sure they can correctly diagnose a waterproofing problem and develop a solution to fix it.
DIAGNOSING A WATERPROOFING PROBLEM
While it may seem obvious to treat the general area where damp patches or leaks appear, our surveyor will figure out exactly why the area is damp or leaking. We do not simply patch up a problem and hope for the best – structural waterproofing repairs from Wise Basement Systems are always a complete solution for your basement or cellar.
This attention to detail allows our surveyor to provide a fit for purpose solution that will prevent any future waterproofing failures – all backed by our 10-year structural waterproofing guarantee.
WATERPROOFING DIAGNOSTIC TECHNOLOGY
Our surveyors use the latest diagnostic equipment to give them all the data they need to provide the most accurate solutions available. When required, our surveyors use a combination of thermographic and photographic equipment.
Our surveyors may use thermal imaging to spot damp spots, borescopes to look inside cavity walls and under floors and moisture metres to establish points of water ingress. Not only does this equipment allow the surveyor to gather all the information we need, it also allows them to show our clients and customers graphical evidence of the problems at hand
Many homeowners are unaware that a basement or cellar will require a certain degree of maintenance to ensure it stays dry. Regular maintenance will minimise the need for any basement or cellar repairs and also ensures that the space remains a habitable part of the property. At Wise Basement Systems, we believe prevention is better than cure, so we have compiled these top tips to help you maintain your basement:
- Gutters and downpipes – Check gutters and downpipes to ensure that water can move freely and there is no debris blocking the flow of water.
- Trees – Roots from trees can disrupt the water flow from your basement or cellar and you should take care to ensure tree roots are not encroaching on your property.
- Sump pumps – Ensure that any sump pumps you have installed are working properly and are removing water from your basement. If your sump pump has an alarm then you should test it regularly.
- Check for leaks – Check the walls and floor in your basement for leaks especially at the floor plates.
If you see anything whilst performing these maintenance checks that leads you to believe your basement is in danger of flooding or developing serious damp problems, then we recommend you request a basement and cellar survey from one of our team.
