Waterproofing

Structures that are built at least partly underground need to be waterproofed for protection from water infiltration due to close contact with the surrounding ground. One common method involves the application of waterproofing materials to the interior and exterior walls of the structure that is in direct contact with the ground. We install the waterproofing system either during building construction or later as a retrofit application for remedial waterproofing or damp proofing.

Damp Proofing structures in Gauteng requires a high level of skill and planning, because ground moisture can come in many forms and affect structures in different ways. For instance, minor seepage can cause infiltration and damage, more so than water that exerts a palpable pressure on the structure.

Many areas of your home can benefit from damp proofing. If you have a concrete deck, patio or driveway, many waterproofing methods can extend their life and beauty. Many people have problems with walls where the plaster becomes loose and falls off, or the paint flakes off due to moisture in the wall.

Waterproofing from the beginning of the home’s construction can save money, damage and frustration in the future. Leaving an area untreated leaves room for water seepage. The natural settling of the house over time will undoubtedly cause cracks and crevices in many concrete areas. These cracks give way to a host of problems caused by water pooling.

The damp proofing materials and methodologies to use depend largely on the ground conditions and the way water is infiltrating the structure. The goal of waterproofing or damp proofing is to create a watertight structure that is impervious to water seepage and pressure. A skilled contractor can implement the right  system which may include a variation of cementitious polymer-based coatings or multi-coat renders, mastic asphalt or liquid-applied membranes, slurries, or even the creative use of epoxy coatings.

With years of experience in the construction industry we are able to assist you with a new construction or remedial action to damage caused by water. Give us a call today and let’s discuss your waterproofing and damp proofing requirements.
