A water-tight layer of material applied on a surface to block water leaks and damage is called waterproofing membrane. They are made up of liquid applied or pre-formed sheet membranes. To stop water seepage, they can be laid around any structural foundation.
This material is essential in all structures given the extreme type of climate here in Australia. Not only must it stand the extreme weather conditions, it should also tolerate strong chemicals and building movement.
Importance of Waterproofing Membrane
About 80% of building damages are connected with water-related concerns. There are instances that waterproofing is not included at all in the construction process. Sometimes, if they are part of the planning and construction process, poor materials are used or service is barely satisfactory.
An excellently built residential or commercial space always considers the best waterproofing components. Here are the things you are risking when you take this for granted:
Property damage brought by poor or lack of waterproofing can affect a structural integrity. If this happens, the property is no longer safe to use.
Protection against leaks and water damage
If there is a water leak, it can damage flooring material like carpets, as well as furniture. This is a domino effect that can grow further if not given attention early on. Moreover, the seepage can stain walls and ceiling and can affect a property’s aesthetics.
Reinforces building structure
Since waterproofing membrane prevents leaks, the lifespan of a building is further strengthened because rust, rot, and corrosion defects are prevented at the onset.
Increased property value through a low maintenance costs
Property damage brought by the absence of or poor waterproofing can be costly. But it cannot happen if quality waterproofing is in place. As a result, your property value can increase because it is well maintained and durability is secured.
Avoid a failed waterproofing project by using a quality material. The industry’s most preferred material is Remedial Membrane’s clear waterproofing membrane. Here are the reasons why:

- It is a clear flexible membrane that can be applied on an existing surface.
- It is engineered not to blush or whiten when exposed to hot and cold water.
