Everything You Should Know About Waterproofing


Waterproofing is an important step in making sure that water and moisture are kept out of the structural components of your home in order to prevent damage. The most common wet areas of a home include the bathroom, laundry, and kitchen areas. However, areas such as the roof, walls, balconies, and other spaces can be susceptible to water damage and also require waterproofing. Water can cause damage in areas that don't have sufficient ventilation so it is important to improve the ventilation in these areas. If you can't, then waterproofing should be applied to these areas.

Damage to areas that are not properly waterproofed can include:

  • Structural damage such as rotting timbers
  • Rising damp
  • Mildew, mould, and fungi
  • Paint that peels
  • Corroding metal structures, such as pipes

What Tasks Do Waterproofing Companies Perform?

A waterproofing professional will apply a membrane to the area that requires waterproofing. The waterproofing professional will determine which type of membrane is best. The professional can also assist with repairing cracks and getting rid of mould. They can also advise you on the best areas of your home to waterproof.

Water Seepage

Unlike a leak, water seepage is when water seeps in from the outside into your home. This means that there are no cracks in your walls but air holes and spaces in between bricks, which allows rainwater to seep in. Although water seepage does not increase your water bills, however, it does give you trouble.

In addition, water seepage aids the growth of mold.

Hiring a Waterproofing Contractor

If you want to hire a professional to perform your waterproofing job, this person needs to be properly licensed and certified to perform the work. This will ensure that the waterproofing is applied with absolutely no gaps. In addition, the waterproofing contractor can guarantee that their work will protect against water damage. Before selecting a waterproofing contractor, you should get quotes from several contractors and recommendations from family and friends.
