Midland Tanking Basement Services

Underground Waterproofing

Solutions for leaks, floods, drainage problems and mould.

Midland Tanking offer a range of different approaches and products for keeping the water out of your basement or cellar.  This is the bedrock of their work and is the most important part of any underground project.  Get it wrong and its only a matter of time before water gets in. 

Midland Tanking can install a simple underground water management system just to stop your space flooding, or they can provide a comprehensive membrane system with associated humidity control suitable for archive storage. Installations can be provided on their own or as part of a sub-contract for larger works.

Basement & Cellar Conversions.

Basement Conversion - Office/StudyConversion of existing spaces for residential and commercial use.

If you're looking to convert an existing underground space Midland Tanking can help you make the most of it. They can undertake the whole design, specification and build service as well as taking care of all the statutory regulations (such as building regulations approval, planning & listed buildings consents and Party Wall Act notices).

Generally there are no limits to what you can use the space for.  Bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms, home offices, home cinemas, the uses are as varied as your imagination.  Whatever the existing construction it can be adapted, although usually costs determine what is realistic! 

When it comes to designing your basement Midland Tanking will work with you to choose the best system and options for your needs, and to specify the very best design that suits your budget.

Retro-fit Basements.

For homes that don't already have a basement.
With ever increasing house prices its becoming viable to add an extra floor to your house under the existing footprint.  Especially in conservation areas, where there is no space for extension or for listed buildings the addition of space underground can be the only way of increasing living space.

Although its expensive, the costs of moving (solicitor's fees, moving fees, estate agent's fees, stamp duty etc.) can soon exceed the costs of providing more space underground and the work can all be undertaken without having to move out.  Disruption can be kept to an absolute minimum with nearly all works capable of being undertaken from outside with the additional provision of portable w/c's and site facilities if you value your privacy.

New Build Basements.

Design, specification, structural and building services for all underground new build projects.

As land prices continue to increase the inclusion of a basement under new build properties makes more and more economic sense.  For example a basement under a bungalow will provide 100% more space and a basement under a two storey house 50% more - usually for an extra 20-40% on the build cost!  Add in the cost of the land and the extra space becomes even better value for money.

Midland Tanking offer a range of services for new builders, from a "ground up" design service, consultancy project management, waterproofing of new build structures, right through to the build of the complete watertight underground structure. 

Garden Basements.

Garden BasementCreate extra space for your home under your garden.

The alternative to a retro-fit basement is a garden basement.  A new substructure is built alongside the existing property and covered over to reinstate the garden.  Again the solution is most suited to properties in conservation areas or in listed buildings where it is not practical to add extra space in the conventional manner.
