Wine Cellar Waterproofing

The Problem

An exclusive lakeside residence in Tahoe California had an extensive wine cellar constructed and this required waterproofing and sealing as a crucial measure in cellaring and maintaining the correct conditions for wine storage.

The Solution

The masonry walls were first treated with a waterproof render to seal the porous brickwork, then applied with Wetsuit seam seal and Wetsuit parts 1 & 2. The walls were subsequently back filled and construction continued.

The Result

Seamless application of Wetsuit provided a complete monolithic cover including seams and points of penetration such as pipework and services, ensuring protection against the surrounding soil water table. As well as protecting from water ingress this ensured protection against concrete cancer and masonry degredation. This in turn contributes to the stability of the footings and building long term lifespan.
