Damp Flooring Problems In Basements

All our floor membranes can be used as a stand-alone product for dealing with a specific damp floor problem, or they can be used as part of a well designed below ground Newton System 500 waterproofing scheme.

Damp Floor Problems Above Ground Level

Two options are available when faced with a damp floor:

  • Replace the damp floor
  • Fully isolate the dampness from the flooring

If the slab is in poor condition it is often best to replace it and install a damp proof membrane below. However, in many listed properties the floor cannot be removed and so a damp proof membrane must be laid above to protect the new floor finish from the dampness within the slab.

Often where a new slab has been laid, commercial time constraints dictate that the floor finish is laid before the new slab is fully dry.  

Our floor membranes can be laid as soon as the ’green’ slab can take pedestrian traffic – often the next day – allowing for even moisture sensitive flooring to be laid almost immediately.

Floor Membrane Finishing Options

Newton floor membrane products are the ideal underlay for all types of floor finishes, including

  • particle board
  • laminated
  • solid wood flooring including oak
  • tiles

Advantages of Newton Membranes:

  • They are quick and easy to install
  • By creating an air gap, Newton floor membranes allow for finishes to be applied whilst the damp floor is still drying out.
  • The Newton floor membrane range enhances acoustic and thermal performance.

Newton 603 Flooring Membrane is ideal for moisture sensitive timber floors

Newton 603 Flooring Membrane is ideal for moisture sensitive timber floors

Newton 603 used as the damp floor solution in this farm house

A Newton Specialist Basement Contractor (NSBC) had been contacted by the client to carry out damp proofing work on this property. During the time that the work was being carried out with subsequent re-plastering, the client mentioned that they would like a new floor. The NSBC suggested they could lay a secret nailed oak floor straight on top of the still damp floor by utilising Newton 603 Flooring Membrane to ensure the moisture sensitive oak would remain dry.

Newton 603 Flooring Membrane is ideal for moisture sensitive timber floors. It also allows you to put a floor with a new slab back in to use very quickly. Read More…

Solution for Previous Failed Tanking, Russian Orthodox Church

Newton System 500 waterproof membranes installed to the walls and Newton System 600 flooring membrane to floor

Newton System 500 waterproof membranes installed to the walls and Newton System 600 flooring membrane to floor

This prestigious New Build project constructed in reinforced concrete was only two years old when the original “tanking” failed. The failure resulted in large areas of standing water to the lower ground floor. Extensive damage occurred to internal fixture and fittings rendering the property unfit for use.

A Newton Specialist Basement Contractor (NSBC),was called into to design and install a robust waterproofing solution. Newton 508 Mesh membrane was installed in the convoluted areas of the church with Newton 508 applied to the other wall areas. Newton Basedrain was cited at the wall floor junction of all retaining walls to capture and divert ingression of water to Newton Titan Pumping System. The floor areas were protected with Newton 520 as a lost drainage layer as the integrity of the RC slab was in question. Insulation was then deployed on the 520 with Newton 601 Slimline floor membrane installed above as an effective dpm. A 65mm screed and floating floor was then chosen as the final floor finish to the project. Read More…
