Waterproofing any building or infrastructure is a broad capability that can involve a large range of products and methodologies. Nearly every building asset requires some form of waterproofing system to prevent water ingress or escape. Waterproofing can involve structural engineered injection solutions, liquid applied membranes, torch-on membranes, adhesive applied membranes, or a combination of all. Waterproofing can be performed on the smallest planter box to large expansive building roof tops and balconies to the waterproofing of basements and car parks and underground infrastructure.
Waterproofing is an integral part of a building structure, be it for residential, commercial or industrial purposes. Good waterproofing prevents water leakage and seepage in the long run. It will also save you money, time and inconveniences when waterproofing is done right the first time.
Why Is Waterproofing Important?
Waterproofing the home or office is becoming an essential part of general building maintenance, especially with the rise in freak weather occurrences across the globe. Below we discuss the benefits of waterproofing, and the possible effects when it has been left too late because of Small Leaks.
Even small leaks can cause problems. Home and business owners often don’t realise that roof leaks are not restricted to the roof, but spread throughout the building, and are capable of weakening walls, damaging electrical equipment, causing the onset of mildew, and even accumulating below the building when the leak is frequent or sustained over a long period of time. This can pose a number of potentially dangerous structural problems, and also can create a breeding ground for insects and other pests capable of carrying disease. Leave all these issue to us , being one of the best waterproofing specialist in Singapore, we ensure we will solve all the problem.
Waterproofing a home is a preventative measure that can actively contribute to cost savings in the long run. It effectively increases the sustainability of a structure, which can help upkeep costs down, and adds to the overall value of the building. Since it keeps pests at bay by eliminating potential breeding environments, it actively benefits the health of the building’s occupants, thereby eliminating unnecessary medical costs.
In addition to reduced maintenance costs, there is yet another important benefit: reduced consumption of maintenance resources means a reduced impact on natural resources, thereby making the structure more environmentally efficient.
