What we do
STRUCTURAL WATERPROOFING DESIGN TEAM
We can provide a design and installation service in full compliance with BS:8102(2009) and the latest design digest (5.4) for below ground waterproofing. The design of which is required by the building warranty providers.
CAVITY MEMBRANE SYSTEMS (APPROVED CONTRACTORS)
Cavity Drain Membrane provides an alternative way of waterproofing walls to the traditional cementitious basement tanking systems. A crucial part of the Type C waterproofing process is the selection of the correct Cavity Drain Membranes. We are Delta Membrane approved installer.
PUMPING AND DRAINAGE SYSTEMS
Our team are professionaly trained installers of all types of packaged pump systems and drainage including telephonics, battery back ups and alarms when required. Typical applications include pumping foul, surface and ground water from domestic and commercial properties.
Koster waterproofing (internal & external)
Koster waterproofing can be applied from either inside or outside of the structure, even if actively leaking. At Oaks we will use a combination of KOSTER waterplug and sealing slurries to achieve a dry, healthy living space internally and a watertight surface externally.
WATER BASED EPOXY RESINS
Water based epoxy resin is suitable for all applications where concrete or masonry requires waterproofing and proptection. It is applied in the same manner as ordinary emulsion paint with the added benefit of application in damp conditions. Once dried water based epoxy leaves a tough, non-toxic, waterproof, easy to clean surface. Avilable in a range of colours.
WET AND DRY ROT TREATMENTS
Wet and dry rot is usually a tell-tale sign that there are underlying issues within a property which can often lead to further issues. At Oaks, we deliver our customers an effective treatment, which prevents the regeneration of the rot efficiently, carefully and professionally.
Damp Proof course injection
At Oaks we install a damp proof course by pattern drilling the masonry at the base of the damp walls and injecting a specially formulated solution of DPC barrier cream, until the entire depth is fully impregnated. This forms an impervious barrier to rising dampness, which prevents moisture rising from the ground into the treated walls.
After a program of damp treatment or damp proofing it is often necessary to remove sections of contaminated plaster-work and decoration, and replace it with specialist replastering. This is particularly important if your damp problems were related to rising damp. At Oaks our experts can assess which areas of your walls will require replastering.
SIKA WATERPROOF RENDER SYSTEM
Sika®-1 Waterproofer is an aqueous solution containing complex colloidal silicates. In the presence of water these swell and block the capillaries and pores in the applied sand/cement renders, screeds and mortar to provide an effective barrier against the transmission of liquid water.
We are passionate about helping our clients to get the best possible solution.
Oaks provide a written guarantee on all works which in turn can be underwritten by the Guarantee Protection Insurance Company.
