Pescon - The professional approach to building preservation

Make the most of your Basement

Need more living space?

Do you have an unused basement or cellar?

Converting a Cellar or Basement into habitable living space can often be more cost effective than constructing a new extension, with the added advantage of not losing garden area.

Pescon have been carrying out below ground waterproofing for over twenty years, helping our clients achieve their goal of increasing both living space and the resale value of their homes. 

Pescon ’s philosophy in respect of penetrating dampness is to control water ingress with the use of cavity drainage membrane, as opposed to waterproof renders, which block the passage of water, thereby increasing the potential for the build up of water pressure, which can eventually lead to failure of render systems.

The use of cavity drainage membranes allows us to direct water to an extraction point where it can be removed by mechanical or natural means.

Added advantages of the membrane system:

• Repairable in the event of accidental damage.
• Improved thermal properties.
• Skirting boards, units, shelving etc can be secured without compromising the system (not so with rendered systems).
• Reduced drying time, allowing for almost immediately redecoration.
• Reduced surface preparation time

All our specifications and works will comply with BS 8102 (waterproofing of structures below ground)

We will be pleased to provide you with a no obligation site inspection and estimate on request.
