Leaking Residential Basement

The Problem

On a sloping block, this poorly constructed basement and footing detail to new build house in progress. The project had been abandoned by builder, and the new builder required make good of existing prior work before recommencing project. The lower basement and rooms of the house had suffered extreme water ingress, due to lack of tanking applied. This left the owner with a stalled project and an unworkable site. A swift resolution was required.

The Solution:

ARS came in and used the complete Wetsuit spray applied tanking system to tank the footings and foundations in addition to some excavation works to ensure footings were properly waterproofed. This was applied externally to positive face of footings and foundations, as well as external retaining walls.

The Result:

WetSuitTM water proofing work was undertaken in middle of winter under difficult conditions. ARS completed works within required time frame and the new builder and other traders were able recommence project to the client’s satisfaction.
