Canalside Country Cottage Conversion

We were contacted by a householder whose picturesque cottage, whilst being in a quaint location adjacent to a canal, was subject to flooding on a relatively regular basis, even though ground floor level was only slightly below external ground levels.

Following strip out works and suitable preparation, a system of water management was introduced on the basis of a Type C Drained Protection System. This involved the installation of a perimeter drainage facility at the vulnerable floor/wall juncture together with sump chamber and mechanical pump operation for the collection and discharge of ingressed water. A high capacity Cavity Drainage Membrane from the Sovereign SovDrain range was also utilised to assist in containing such water and prevent further flooding.
