A key cog in an effective exterior waterproofing solution is a water-tight membrane that is attached to the foundation’s cement walls.
Waterproofing membranes are multi-layered, made from polymers and bitumen. A key feature of 4mm-thick poly membranes is its ability to stretch, to cover over cracks that may form in the home’s foundation walls over time. The product’s flexibility can also accommodate any structural movements in the house.
Breathable membranes allow water vapour that has been trapped to evaporate into the air – another key. Also, the membrane has to be strong – it can’t tear.
Overall, the quality of the waterproofing membranes used ensures long-lasting results across all application areas, excellent tear and puncture resistance, equally able to withstand heat and cold weather flexibility.
