Structural Water Proofing

in North London and Hertfordshire

a reputation for excellence

Here at Olympic Preservation Ltd, we have been providing structural water proofing solutions to our customers across North London and Hertfordshire since 2013. Whilst all damp proofing is structural to a certain extent, the term structural water proofing is used in the industry to describe water proofing solutions applied to areas with earth retaining walls. This includes basements, cellars, tunnels, underground car parks and other, similar, structures. These areas are normally built underground, beneath the water table and, as such, are susceptible to penetrating damp from the surrounding soil. By performing a detailed damp survey, we can determine those areas most at risk.

From our office in Borehamwood, we deliver effective structural water proofing services over a 15-mile radius. This takes in the whole of Hertfordshire and North London, including our valued customers in Cricklewood, Finchley, Hendon, North Finchley, and beyond.

Professional Structural Water Proofing

in North London and Hertfordshire

As your local structural water proofing specialists, we have much to offer our customers in North London, Hertfordshire, and beyond.

Here is what you can expect from us…

Damp Survey and Assessment

There are several approaches we can take to structural water proofing. Choosing the right one depends on the conditions in the area in question, as well as the overall structure of the property above. Our structural water proofing experts will perform a detailed damp survey and inspection of the site before providing you with their professional advice on the most effective solution.

Barrier Protection

Barrier protection (also referred to as tanking) is the simplest method of waterproofing an underground area. Waterproof cement is used to create a physical barrier across the walls and ceiling, holding back any water ingress from the outside. While often considered an old-fashioned approach, it can still prove highly effective when applied by trained professionals.

Integrated Water Proofing

This method of structural water proofing is installed at the construction stage, meaning it is not suitable for existing properties. It involves fitting a method of waterproofing into the cellar or basement walls during the build itself. A popular choice among construction companies, it provides an effective and permanent form of water proofing.

Interior Water Proofing

Sometimes the most effective solution to water ingress is to simply let it happen and then dispose of the water at its source. This system involves fitting a waterproof membrane to structural elements to protect them from damage and fitting a drainage system and sump pump to channel any water away from the basement or cellar.
