What is Waterproofing? –The conventional system of waterproofing involves ‘waterproof membranes’. This relies on the application of one or more layers of membrane (available in various materials: e.g., liquid applied, Bitumen, PVC, EPDM, etc.) that act as a barrier between the water and the building structure, preventing the passage of water. However, the membrane system relies on exacting application, presenting difficulties.
Why is it important? – In building & construction, a structure needs waterproofing since concrete & various other building materials will not be watertight on its own. If areas are not waterproofed they will lead to leaking within the confines of your home along with weakening the structure.
