Aquasafe® - the perfect solution for a waterproof basement

With an AquaSafe® basement system from Glatthaar Keller you can be rest assured that your house will have optimal protection against penetrating moisture. Precast concrete panels and additional tanking of the external joints and walls means that our waterproofing system offers 100% protection against ground water levels. This is a proven and effective barrier against all forms of damp.

Further waterproofing options are available to prevent against seepage and water pressure, should your property be located in an area with rising water tables, poor ground conditions, or at high flood risk. A simple ground survey will determine which waterproofing system is necessary for your chosen basement, and with the experience of building over 500+ basements each year, you can rely on Glatthaar Keller for a wealth of knowledge and expertise.
