Sovereign - tanking

Sovereign approved tanking systems

Tanking systems are ideal for cellar and basement conversions. They provide vital extra living space in residential situations, and can help you access previously untapped floor space in commercial premises. The work comes at a relatively low cost and adds value to your property, so it is well worth considering.

We are experienced in water proofing and tanking for cellars and basements as well as for wet rooms. We’ve worked on commercial and residential water proofing and tanking projects with great results, and all of our work is backed by a Sovereign guarantee so you know you are in safe hands.

If you are thinking of a wet room, we have a team of skilled tradesmen with the joinery, tiling and plumbing skills required, and our approval from Sovereign means we access the very best systems so you don’t need to be concerned about potential leaks and drainage problems.

And if you’re considering a cellar or basement conversion we can advise you on the right water proofing, damp coursing or tanking system to meet your needs. We’ll bring in a skilled team for every aspect of the project right through to an expert finish).

We have extensive experience in creating stunning bathrooms and kitchens for extended living spaces; please see our project pages for further information.

    Troughton's is a family firm and after working on our property throughout 2015 and 2016, we feel honoured to have been part of this family during the renovation / conversion of our property. During 2015 when the farmhouse was being renovated we were still living in Lincoln. Despite the distance, Jim and Paul Troughton kept us regularly informed on progress, on decisions to be taken and sent us regular photographs. Jim not only acted as a builder but full project manager and his son Paul was instrumental in design choices ensuring a beautiful finished product. Without even asking for many of the features we now have, Jim sourced traditional stone flags for our fire places and some floored areas, plus traditional looking timbers and slates for window trusses and sills. Jim knows exactly how our old farmhouse and barn conversion should look. His own staff have a wide range of skills and where necessary he used skilled sub-contractors. The quality of everyone's work has been faultless and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Every member of staff working on our property has been courteous, polite and friendly at all times. The Troughton Home Improvements team have produced a beautiful home for us. It is truly our dream house.
