Tanking provides peace of mind against damp

For a majority of homeowners in Cornwall the effects of damp on the ground floor and basement levels of the home can be considerable. Many homes require some degree of tanking or damp proof membrane to protect the home from water related damage. At Marnick builders we have used Newton tanking systems to great effect on a number of properties and there is a Newton system to suit any property, from render based damp proof systems to plastic tanking and sump pumps.

We have the experience to be able to advise you on the best possible solution for your home, taking into account all aspects of planning and surveying to ensure that encroaching damp is a thing of the past, allowing you to enjoy your home to its full potential.

Click through the gallery below to see an example of a rigid plastic tanking system in Falmouth. This system drains into a sump pump and is covered with stud walling over the top of the membrane  leaving a stable base for whatever surface finish the room requires.
