What is waterproofing?
Waterproofing is the way in which we make a structure watertight so that what is underneath is unaffected by water. It is a protective measure that prevents the penetration of rainwater. Waterproofing preserves the condition of structures and interiors.
Why is waterproofing important?
Waterproofing is one of the most important practices in the construction industry. Protecting the structure and the interior of buildings is so important. A home or building is exposed to many weather events like rain, hail, fog, snow, ice, and wind. It’s important, therefore, that the building is waterproof throughout. This includes the foundations and walls. Waterproofing a home or building prevents water damage that could ruin the structure and interior of your home or building.
Structural problems caused by poor waterproofing
Deterioration of the inside of a building – this means things like paint peeling off, wood rotting due to moisture, and dark stains on a ceiling that sags. Also, if exposed to moisture, concrete can begin to chip off. This will start as small pieces but will eventually progress so that huge chunks of concrete can fall off from heights.
Protecting you and your family’s health
If waterproofing in a home or building is not up to scratch, then moisture can find its way in. This can cause numerous health problems. If moisture enters your ceilings and walls, it will lead to a buildup of mildew and mold. Mildew and mold create spores and these can lead to an array of health problems. The spores escape into the air and will travel straight to your lungs when you inhale them. This can cause problems with your health. This is a major problem so it’s important to get your home or building waterproofed to prevent the occurrence of health problems.
Moreover, trapped water inside badly-waterproofed buildings makes for an ideal breeding ground for bacteria, fungi, and molds. People have different sensitivities but many of us are really sensitive to the microorganisms that occur with moisture. This can cause allergies, asthma attacks and other reactions.
You might think that paying for waterproofing is expensive but just think about how expensive fixing up problems caused by water damage. As you will have heard hundreds of times, prevention is better than the cure. Consider your waterproofing bill as a long-term investment. This outlay will actually mean you are better off in the long run.
What problems does failed waterproofing cause?
When a building is constructed less than 3% of the build cost goes on waterproofing.
However, this is one area that you need to make sure is done really well since around 80% of building defects are caused by waterproofing problems and defects. The implications of poor waterproofing are significant.
- Safety – in extreme cases, damage caused by waterproofing failure can be so severe that it causes structural damage meaning that a building is no longer safe.
- Uninhabitable – mold, concrete cancer and structural problems can all make a building uninhabitable. When a building relies on rental income, this can affect a person in lots of different financial ways.
- Leaks – leaks can cause varying degrees of damage to carpets and furniture as well as structure.
- Concrete cancer – if buildings use reinforced concrete, poor waterproofing can lead to corrosion of the steel within the structure. This means that the steel expands. The concrete will then crack and cause more exposure to the steel, which accelerates the corrosion further.
Common reasons why waterproofing fails
The leading cause of waterproofing failure is poor workmanship. The second cause is the use of a waterproof membrane that is not fit for purpose. Waterproofing Cape Town has a fantastic reputation and guarantees all of its work. We keep up to date with all of the latest information regarding waterproofing so you can be sure that our work is the best there is.
Another reason for waterproofing failure is the lack of maintenance. Regular maintenance means you can catch problems early meaning you avoid problems like concrete cancer, which is much cheaper than dealing with a problem later on. Water damage escalates really quickly so it’s important to maintain seals on windows and doors too. Waterproofing Cape Town offers a maintenance service.
