Proof Membrane for Damp Houses
membranes, made of studded membrane polyethylene, are ideal for lining damp walls
and damp floors. Cellar conversions can also use this technique as a form of tanking,
although traditional cement based tanking still has its place. Waterproof membrane
used in cellar tanking is ideal for DIY Damp Proofing because it is so easy to
fix and seal. The outcome is a dry basement conversion with rooms that can be
decorated and inhabited as if above ground. Tanking membrane is also sometimes
referred to as an air gap membrane because it is studded or dimpled. The studs
touch the wall and create an air space This is a good insulator, reducing the
risk of Condensation.
