A Flood-Proof Waterproofing Solution for Your Home

storms Desmond, Eva and Frank wreaked havoc on over 16,000 residential homes. Newton Waterproofing examines how cavity drainage systems can assist those who are recovering from, or facing the threat of flooding.


Cleanup The greatest challenges following a flood are to make damaged properties fit for

n recent years the UK’s winter storms have been a firm reminder of the threat posed by flooding. In 2015 especially,

reoccupation, and to protect them from future flooding. However, one of the biggest delays in

the cleanup is the need to allow saturated walls to dry out. This can be as slow as one month per inch of wall thickness, and cannot begin until all contaminated materials are removed and a ‘Decontaminated Building and Sanitation Certificate’ has been issued.

Recovery Speeding up this process is therefore a crucial part of any effective flood management strategy, and internal cavity drainage systems are perfect for the role. The cuspated waterproofing membranes create an air gap between the membrane and the wall, providing two major benefits: • Separating the damp wall from the internal environment, allowing new surfaces and finishes to be installed immediately

• Creating positive vapour pressure that ‘moves’ dampness out of the property. As

vapour moves from the inside to the outside in an attempt to equalise, damp in the walls is also moved outwards

Reoccupation and Remediation Cavity drainage systems maintain the structure while protecting internal environments, allowing new finishes to be applied with peace of mind, and enabling reoccupation significantly earlier than if the walls were required to dry out naturally. Finally, cavity drainage systems also

protect properties against future flooding, forming an integral part of an overall flooding solution.
