Finding a tradesman for cavity drain installation

Installing cavity drains can be an ideal solution for waterproofing a home. They take advantage of modern wall and floor cavities by using the space to safely divert water that enters a property away from areas where it can do harm. They are a particularly popular solution for waterproofing during cellar or basement conversions. However, as with all waterproofing methods, a poor job will only leave your property vulnerable. When you need this kind of service, the best Pro to speak to will be a qualified local drainage specialist.

What do you need to know about cavity drain installation?

A cavity drain is an controlled drainage system that allows water to flow into a property before diverting it to a sump or collection point. It does this by utilising a waterproof membrane in the cavity of a wall, a system which is not only less disruptive than other waterproofing methods, but is also far less vulnerable to structural movement. The membranes can be installed in a cavity in a wall or floor, and will then be covered as appropriate.
For a cavity drain installation service, your drainage specialist will start with by surveying your property. They will determine if a cavity drain solution is appropriate, before offering you a quote for the work.
While cavity drain installation services are popular for basement and cellar conversions, it is important to keep in mind that using them on a floor will raise that floor’s height. Building Regulations require that all rooms have a certain amount of headroom; if your cavity drain solution would raise the floor too far, you may have to seek an alternative fix.
The cost of a cavity drain installation service is dependent on the size of the area that must be waterproofed. Ask your tradesmen for an average cost per square meter and do some measuring of your own to help you compare your quotes. Remember, if you do not yet have an area where the moisture in your walls can be diverted, you will also need to discuss installing one with your drainage specialist.
