Project Description


Rising house prices and planning permission issues are leading more homeowners to think about ‘building down’. Constructing and converting basements are an ideal way to add space and market value. Whether you’re looking for a new space for a gym, study, home cinema or wine cellar, basement conversions are a great investment and we’ve created hundreds throughout Cambridgeshire.

A crucial stage in any basement project is structural waterproofing. Sitting below ground level, water can easily enter basements unless they are sealed. Even basements with no history of water ingress can still be at risk and basement tanking or waterproofing can protect against damp and flooding.

Fully compliant basement tanking systems

Basement waterproofing is a specialist process and it is important to engage experts as early as possible. If you are considering a new below-ground structure or a basement conversion, our specialist designers and installers work with your architect, engineers and main contractors to provide all aspects of structural waterproofing.

APP Protect is fully qualified to design, supply and install basement tanking and structural waterproofing systems, in accordance with BS 8102:2009. The British Standard gives recommendations and provides guidance on methods of dealing with and preventing the entry of water from surrounding ground into a structure below ground level. By working to these standards, we ensure that below ground structures remain dry and valuable furnishing and possessions are protected.
