Every building is at risk from damage caused by water ingress.
Premier Contractors are experts in ensuring first class installation; the key issue in waterproofing.
If waterproofing is done incorrectly, moisture can build up, causing damage directly to the building and to the contents inside it.
The waterproofing experts at Premier Contractors have over 60 years’ experience, and all our surveyors are CSSW qualified.
We specialise in basement design with extensive expertise in the use of a wide range of waterproofing systems.
Our skills and service encompass every aspect of a project from full design to construction and installation of structural waterproofing systems in existing basements, cellars as well as new underground/earth retaining structures.
We offer a comprehensive 10-year guarantee backed by GPI insurance on all our projects.
As an approved installer of waterproofing systems, Premier Contractors have first rate knowledge of a wide range of specialist products which offer effective solutions to problems in both new and old construction.
Whether the issue is aggressive ground water conditions, where basements are liable to flooding, or where simple dampness, contamination or salting problems, we have the team and the capability to help.
To protect the whole structure, we can apply protection to the exterior or interior of the structure, dependent on the specific circumstance.
In either case, there are several options available to suit, and whichever method is specified, our systems all offer Type A barrier protection, preventing the ingress of water into the inner building fabric.
On the external or “positive” side, pre-applied barrier membranes can be bonded sheet membranes, sodium bentonite matting or liquid applied coatings.
Internally, on the “negative” side, post-applied approaches include cementitious coatings and bitumen, or polymer-based liquids applied via spray, trowel, brush or roller.
Premier Contractors are hugely experienced in the installation of top quality, effective Dampproof Courses.
Often, after installation, walls need to dry out which can cause delays in re-decoration or damage to plasterwork whilst still wet.
To overcome this issue, Premier Contractors can offer an 8mm cavity drain membrane system to allow the wall to breathe and dry out without the disruption of delaying redecorating.
Whatever waterproofing a building needs, it needs to be done right. Premier Contractors are a leading and approved provider of every possible preventative measure.
below ground waterproofing
Basement waterproofing needs very careful surveying and planning, and Premier Contractors are approved installers of below-ground waterproofing systems.
It is accepted that water will enter many buildings and an internal cavity is provided to depressurise and manage the water, sometimes referred to as a “water management system”.
A Type C System is a below ground, internal waterproofing system, comprising membranes, drainage and, if required, pumping systems with backup ancillary products.
Water can be discharged from the property either via a gravity drainage channel or removed by a sump pump.
Premier Contractors’ Type C systems meet BS 8102:2009 recommendations for a “maintainable waterproofing systems”.
