As with our foundation installation services, we work through the stages of basement projects in an efficient and professional manner to meet every expectation regarding budgets, timescales and workmanship.
The phases of basement construction include:
1. Excavation – Using plant equipment to expedite the process, we excavate the proposed site to the arranged depth. This depth depends on multiple factors such as the type of soil, the kind of structure above and the intended use of the basement.
2. Construction – Two of the most common construction methods for basements include pouring concrete into formwork or the use of prefabricated concrete blocks. However, the latter doesn’t suit soil types prone to swelling.
3. Waterproofing – As groundwork contractors, we have various waterproofing methods available to us, including the addition of a chemical to the concrete used in conjunction with a waterproof membrane, the process of tanking and the installation of drained cavities.
Whether you live in Epsom, Dorking, Farnborough, Cobham or the Claygate region, waterproofing plays an important role in the long-term condition of your basement.
4. Insulation – In addition to complying with Building Regulations pertaining to ventilation and waterproofing, basements must also adhere to those surrounding insulation. Our groundwork contractors use insulation boards, foam insulation or fibreglass to improve heat retention while preventing problematic internal condensation.
Regardless of the project at hand, D & K Groundwork Contractor Ltd provides outstanding basement and foundation installation results in Farnham, Guildford, Basingstoke, Reading, Weybridge and the surrounding areas.
