Selecting the correct waterproofing application is crucial when it comes to problem areas. As Waterproofing Specialists may understand: different problems require specific solutions; many home and business owners are not aware of the difference in application. Waterproofing and Damp proofing applications are not a one-size-fits-all remedy, therefore, careful identification of affected areas by a trusted Waterproofing specialist is required from the first inspection.
As its name may indicate cementitious waterproofing is a solution for concrete areas often exposed to water, such as showers, floors, walls, balconies, patios, bridges and drains making it suitable for new and existing structures in respective residential, commercial and industrial type structures. As strong as concrete is, water has a means of penetrating the material, causing damage and deterioration over time.
By using a cement-based polymer coating, the cementitious waterproofing application creates a durable barrier to prevent water and moisture from damaging the area, ensuring the concrete remains strong and protected. An untouched surface of cement increases your chances of damage evident in features such as flaking, cracking, peeling or crumbling. The risk is apparent in an inevitable failure in structure, causing a loss of property, a loss of money and a loss of time.
Although cementitious waterproofing is limited by movement in the structure, the application is stress-free and once applied, the treatment can withstand high water pressures. This is also a safe way to ensure concrete is adequately waterproofed, giving you confidence that the only work required in time to come is a general maintenance application.
