What is Waterproofing?

As a result, preventing a passage for water.
Why is Waterproofing Important?
Water leaking into a concrete structure can cause many problems and severe damage. If water can find its way into a buildings structure, mould and bacteria can form quickly.

Types of Waterproofing

Swimming Pool Waterproofing
Swimming pool leaks tend to result in a very slow and gradual water loss, often unnoticed until its costs you hundreds of dollar in lost water. This is also a big cost for the environment too!
Bathrooms, laundry and wet areas are hugely important when it comes to waterproofing.
