What Is Waterproofing and Why Is It Important?

When something is waterproof or water-resistant, it will be relatively unaffected by water or will be capable of resisting the infiltration of water under specific circumstances.

As opposed to damp proofing, the term refers to resistance to moisture or dampness, water-resistant and waterproof commonly refer to the ability to resist the penetration of liquid water and maybe pressurized.

Providing a structure, building, or home with waterproofing is an essential component. Waterproofing must be performed as per the architectural plan during the construction process, otherwise, damaging outcomes may destroy the building, structure, and personal belongings. As part of the roofing process, siding, foundations, as well as various penetrations within these surfaces, water resistance and waterproofing must be ensured.

Waterproofing services are provided by HydroStopSA to the following industries:

If you wish to properly waterproof your investment with long-lasting and durable results, it is crucial to determine the source of water infiltration and to select the appropriate system and solution.
