Tanking is a damp proofing term used to describe an application where a wall suffering from water ingress is covered with a waterproof, water impenetrable coating.
Usually it's a chemical based slurry, applied in conjunction with a waterproof rendering system.
We use tanking below ground in basements and cellars and sometimes we will apply the slurry above ground, where a chemical damp proof course may not be the best application, such as old stone walls.
All our tanking treatments come with a 20 year insurance underwritten guarantee.
Forget the cheap versions available in builders merchants, we use only the finest grade sovereign grey slurry,3 times the price of the generic versions builders merchants sell. To do the job correctly it needs to be carried out by a professional like ourselves, so call us if you have a tanking job that needs to be carried out correctly!
