Cellar Waterproofing & Tanking


Most commonly used would be the 8mm cavity drainage membrane due to the cost difference between a cement render and membrane (the membrane being the cheaper and more reliable option)

It is also easier to take the cellar to a finish with plasterboard with the membrane as you can fix through the membrane with the waterproof plugs.

Top tip if converting a cellar is to make sure the air is getting mechanically changed this will stop mold appearing and damaging the contents
