Basement Damp Proofing Case Study: Islington, North London

1st April 2016

Islington damp proofing


Project Overview

The LHC professionals were recently involved in a basement damp proofing project in Islington North London.

The existing vault was extremely damp and could not be used, so the aim was to make it a completely dry space the client could use for storage.


Project Challenges

This project was relatively straightforward and did not pose any significant challenges – and as with all LHC jobs was completed on time and on budget to the client’s total satisfaction.


Project Materials

Once again on this project we deployed high quality Delta Membrane Systems products to seal and waterproof the walls and floor, plus a sump and pump. The walls were then finished with a specialist white plaster.

Delta’s systems have been used widely in large-scale projects such as the Channel Tunnel and the London Underground, so we work with only top standard materials in getting the job done well.

Project Outcome

Our client – a top London solicitor – was very pleased with the work we carried out for him, and has since asked us to complete more work at his property. He was kind enough to provide this testimonial about the quality of our work.

“Peter Hodge and his team were responsible for tanking a vault of ours recently (Jan/Feb 2016) in Islington. All aspects of the process were professionally handled, from pricing the job, plastering and the related aspects, and finally cleaning up and finishing off. I’d recommend them strongly.” Michael Kent, Homeowner.
