Job type: Structural Waterproofing
During the course of this project the existing retaining wall tanking was exposed and then questioned by project consultants. We were approached by the groundworker and asked to assess and make proposals which lead to the wall being comprehensively re-tanked externally, before being protected with geodrainage membrane.
December isn’t an ideal time to be installing external tanking systems, certainly any which are reliant on curing (drying out), because cold temperatures mean that air cannot hold much moisture so you have high relative humidity and nothing dries quickly, with the risk then being that materials are detrimentally affected by rain or frost.
As a result we specified a spray applied system which is a bitumen rubber based material (massively elastic), which is mixed with a catalyst as it exits the spray nozzle, causing instant curing, meaning that the application was completed in a short timeframe and could be covered over within 24 hours.
A quick turn-around and quality installation, designed and implemented by Waterproofing Design Specialist Trace.

"I can highly recommend Trace. I rang to get a damp survey booked in on a property we were looking to buy. Lewis was very helpful over a couple of phone calls, even ringing back on a day off! Offered advice and help even though we didn't end up going through with the survey. Great service, will use again."
“Just had Trace in to deal with a fairly significant damp problem in our house. The work was completed to a very high standard in the timescale agreed before commencement. Really good communication throughout and the tradesmen were really professional. Left the house as tidy as possible every day and I’m made up with the outcome. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to family and friends.”
