Cellar treatment in Milton Keynes

Following an ongoing problem with water ingress within the cellar of a large detached house in Olney, Kenwoods were called in to assess. Cellars such as this are constructed below ground and were not built to be dry spaces, hence are particularly susceptible to dampness and water ingress. The original walls had no form of waterproofing other than the mass of the walls themselves.
