What is waterproofing?
“Waterproofing is the installation of a water resistant barrier which is designed to prevent water in flowing, or out flowing, from different sections of a building or home structure.”
Internal areas that are commonly waterproofed include bathrooms, shower recesses, laundries and toilets. The external areas that are waterproofed include roofs, planter boxes, balcony decks, walls, parapets, and retaining walls. Waterproofing can be applied to many mediums including concrete, masonry, cement render, fibre cement sheets, and timber.
Building leak repairs can account for up to 80% of all building complaints. Diagnosis for repair, and installation of the correct waterproofing system can stop dampness issues and prevent the problem from becoming much worse over time. This, in turn, will save you a lot of money and unnecessary damage to your home or building.
