What is Building Waterproofing?

Building waterproofingWaterproofing a building isn’t something you’ve probably thought much about. Most people consider waterproofing things like phones, shoes, and household items, but waterproofing an entire building isn’t something most people have thought about. While you may not have spent a whole lot of time debating what goes in to waterproofing a building, it’s important that you have an idea of what it is, especially if you own a business. You’ll want to make sure that water isn’t able to leak in through a basement or any other cracks.

Building waterproofing helps keep water outside, where it belongs. In order to do this, there are a few steps that special contractors take. When buildings are first built, there are generally quite a few precautions put in place to avoid having water get in. These are more stringent in places that get a lot of rain or are particularly moist. However, sometimes water still manages to make it in and extra measures are taken to help water run off buildings.

Problems associated with water coming in include mold, humidity in the building, and in serious cases, problems with sheetrock and rotting. If you have any experience with any of these things, you know that building waterproofing is important. Sealants, irrigation systems, and facades are some of preventive measures that can be taken against water damage. You should be careful about doing any of these yourself, though as there can be serious issues if you don’t waterproof properly. You should only trust a job like this to professionals.
