Damp Proof Membrane for Damp Houses

Waterproof 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.

membrane materials - plastic dimpled sheet on a roll. Easy to cut and trim with scissors or knife.

sealing and fixing - special Mastic Rope and Tape, with plugs to suit both wall fixing methods.

plastering - plaster straight onto the welded-on mesh with ordinary Bonding lightweight plaster

floor option - for damp floors, or basements use our membrane without the mesh - just lay chipboard flooring or screed directly onto the waterproof membrane.
