We have underpinned the lower ground floor (LG floor = common construction practice in Victorian London, whereby the floor is not technically a full basement.) of a mid-terrace house. Luckily, our neighbour on one side did the same thing at the same time.
The new concrete that forms the pin on the other side (i.e. the wall with the neighbour whose LG floor was not underpinned, and remains at its original slightly higher level) is therefore subject to ingress of water from the soil on the other side.
We have stripped our internal walls back to brick.
It just so happens we have also dug a basement at the rear, which requires a waterproofing system (cavity drain membrane and sump pump).
Should we apply the same cavity drain membrane system to the existing LG now that we have underpinned? We can get water that drains from the LG floor out to the new basement and use its sump pump.
What are the pros and cons of doing this?
I guess the alternative might be to "tank" the wall with a waterproof render.
