The Importance of Waterproofing

  • April 13, 2023

Water proofing is the simplest and most effective method to protect the quality and aesthetics of a construction project. Some investors may believe that waterproofing is not really necessary and that it is costly. However, reputable investors and contractors have affirmed that waterproofing is their top priority and that it is crucial factor in determining whether a construction project will withstand the test of time and remain solid and durable.


Why is waterproofing necessary for your construction project?

For residential buildings, factories, and apartment complexes, proper waterproofing is essential. If a building is not waterproofed correctly, it can lead to serious consequences:

In the case of leaks from concrete roofs, the structure of floors, beams, and columns of the house can be damaged, affecting the quality and longevity of the building.

In the case of leaks from exterior walls, mold and moisture damage can ruin the paint and aesthetics of the building. If water damage is left untreated over time, it can lead to the growth of mold, which can directly impact the health and safety of people.

Therefore, using waterproofing solutions is the simplest and most effective way to prevent these risks


The Timing of Waterproofing

Waterproofing should be implemented during the construction process, as investing in it from the outset can save you two to three times the cost of repairs that may arise later. For construction projects such as supermarkets, hospitals, schools, factories, etc., it is nearly impossible to halt operations for repairs. Therefore, waterproofing is the ideal choice to prevent unnecessary risks.
