Coating of Concrete Waterproofing

As is the common issue that moisture develops in any form around the buildings sites. The most important to deal with this moisture which is the main success of any project. Many systems are developed to overcome the moisture issues in the building sites which gives complete protection against moisture.

Different companies used to make a number of products for concrete waterproofing and moisture control. There are many waterproofing products available in the market of the various levels so there are many companies which require you to become their certified applicator. Various products have different characteristics that have different applications methods so there is need of a specialist waterproofing contractor having the capability to deal with multiple products.

They make you sure about complete eradication of moisture in your felicity by applying the products in different combinations. As the concrete waterproofing job requires a lot of careful reviews of the manufacturer’s literature about the material because there are many materials of below level used for concrete waterproofing in the market.

Cementitious Waterproofing:

The method used in this technique is the easiest and the product used in this method is always readily available also they are quite easier in their application. The effects of this method could be enhanced by adding some acrylic additive in the cementation product which will provide most durable bonding and provide great protection from moisture. But there are many disadvantages of this method one of them is that they only will stand up good to just above the head of moisture but do not bearable for crack movement because it does not have the stretching to that much extent.

Liquid Membranes:

This coating method for concrete waterproofing used a liquid which is applied through rollers or spray. The liquid is composed of polymer-modified asphalt. The liquid applied seeps through the wrinkle among the coating of the walls. Advantages of this method include that it is very fast in an application as well as it is very cost effective with long-term results because the manufacturer used particular procedures for treating holes. But the main disadvantage is that it has inconsistency in its coverage and it requires very careful applicators.

Sheet Membranes

This method used a special material of asphalt flooring as a sheet which is self-adhered to a laminated waterproof polyethene film. The asphalt is comparatively sticky so it is covered by a paper which is removed during the application. This sheet membrane system will allow quick and repair of holes and wrinkles on the concrete walls due to sticky nature of asphalt. It has a consistent thickness which is the main advantage of this concrete waterproofing.
