There may not have been any major flood warnings across the country just yet, but winter can be a time of year that people dread due to floods. With heavy down pours becoming more frequent, a good number of households across the country are at risk of flooding water damaging their homes.
Whether you have dealt with flood water in your home or not, everyone knows that the water can cause a great deal of damage to a home. Furniture can be ruined, carpets may need replacing and walls can become damp, even after the flood water has drained away.
Though we may not be able to prevent heavy downpours and flooding, we can help you protect your home when short ‘flash floods’ occur.
Peter Cox DryWall Thermotek combined with our mortar treatment, and can be used to increase the flood resistance of masonry in those first few minutes of a flash flood. Once it has been applied to a wall surface, it permeates deeply before curing to form a water-repellent barrier. While this is not a full flood protection system it can help reduce the amount of flood water that is able to pass through a masonry and can be used in conjunction with a full Cavity Drain Waterproofing system.
