Basement Waterproofing Melbourne

Waterproofing basements is one of our specialist services. Finding moisture in your basement can be very concerning. You might be wondering how on earth you have found yourself in this situation. The causes of water damage in basements can be varied and complex.

Rainwater Damage

Got a wet basement? You might have a problem. Basements can become damp when rainwater runs towards the external walls of your home from your roof, yard or driveway. It can even happen when drains are blocked. If this is the cause of your problem, you’ll need to install waterproofing membranes, as well as making sure the water ingress is redirected away from the home,

Internal Leaking

Another way basements can become wet and damp is through internal leaking. When you have a leaky shower, bath or sinks, water can seep through basement walls. Basement water leaks can cause significant structural damage to your property. It can also cause costly damage to any materials you keep in your basement and ruin expensive equipment you happen to store there.

Water Table Problems

Some parts of Melbourne and greater Victoria have issues with rising water tables. This can cause basement floods to occur through no fault of your own.

Basement leaks can rarely be fixed with DIY waterproofing tools. If you have water damage to sub floor structures, you’ll need a professional. Leave it to the experts- call Citi Tiling Group.

What is The Waterproofing Method Used?

These problems can occur for some time before you are able to carry out leak detection. Once you notice a leak in the basement, you know that you have to take action before further damage occurs. Waterproofing products can fix leaks quickly and simply. They are safe for use in the home and have crack spanning capabilities that mean weak spots can be protected.

Applying a Waterproofing Membrane

If you have moisture in your basement, you could have water in concrete foundations, blocked up in drains or issues with yard drainage. Basement waterproofing involves covering relevant surfaces with a waterproof membrane which is similar to liquid rubber or waterproof paint, but which has been specially designed to provide maximum waterproof protection.

Basement Waterproofing- How is it Done?

When you’ve got a basement leak, contact Citi Tiling for a complete assessment of the size and nature of the problem. Our first step is always to check for safety and carry out an audit of the structural integrity of your basement. To do this we will need adequate access to your entire basement. Any significant damage will need to be repaired and damage to concrete walls immediately addressed. This is also when any floor joint repair work can be done.

The next step is the application of the seamless membrane waterproofing treatment that provides a cohesive waterproof treatment to the floors and surfaces of your basement.

Get Rid of Mould For Good

Mould thrives in damp and dark areas without sufficient ventilation. Installing effective waterproofing compounds across all areas of your existing basement will help eliminate the damp and allow you to get rid of any mould that has been able to grow. Our basement waterproofing service involves the application of a special sealant to all areas of the basement, including:

  • Insulation boards
  • Foundation walls
  • Retaining walls
  • Localised ground structures
