Basement Waterproofing, 

As experts in structural and basement waterproofing and ground gas protection solutions, we offer the highest quality of service. From taking design responsibilty, materials supply, to on-site training and support, or installation by our own experienced teams and approved installers.

Atal UK provide design services for all stages of the build from concept stage to remedial works for existing structures.

If you notice any of the following eight signs in your home, contact a waterproofing professional immediately:

  • Water puddles in the basement
  • Water stains on the floor or walls
  • Leaks coming from the floor or walls
  • Condensation on basement windows or doors
  • Swelling or warped doors
  • The smell of dampness that doesn’t seem to go away
  • Visual confirmation of mold or mildew
  • Cracking on the floor or walls

You'll be helped along the way by an ATM(Area Technical Manager).

The role of our ATM is to look after architects, engineers and contractors involved with the Wateproofing and Ground Gas protection elements on a project. Their involvement begins in the design stage and they assist you right the way through to project completion, to ensure you have a point of contact at all times.

Key tip for successfully using waterproofing concrete:

Always check the mix design. The mix design is really the key recipe of the concrete. In this process you're looking to identify whether the mix design is appropriate for the project. For example: Swimming pools will require a different mix design to a basement wall.

Ensuring your design complies with the relevant british standards (BS8102, the Code of Practice for protection of below ground structures against water from the ground, NHBC Chapter 5.4, and BS 8485, the Code of practice for the design of protective measures for methane and carbon dioxide ground gases for new buildings.) doesn't mean overcomplicating the solution. In fact, keeping the waterproofing system simple, may be the most effective way to ensure the contractor installs it correctly.

Work closely with the engineer and insurance provider to understand their requirements.

Ensure the design is achievable. Have you heard the quote; "I can draw a man holding an elephant up but I can't actually do it". It's absolutely key that the design is achievable to install on site, this requires considering a host of factors.

And to reiterate, ensure the solution is simple AND effective. Getting it complete correctly first time, will be cheaper than rectifying the solution with remedial action.

Testimonials

The customers that have been supplied with the admixture have been pleased and we have had no issues with strength or quality.

The change to the bags sizes(introduction of the water soluable bag) has made it easier especially for manually handling on the plant side.

The atal service has been fantastic, the architect specified the types of waterproofing that we’d need. We had early design meetings with atal and the main contractor and from that point we’ve gone through the whole process from design to copmletion. They’ve been great.
