is a complex component of Construction Waterproofing. Water in the form of vapour, liquid or solid presents below ground construction with many unique problems.
Its one part of waterproofing you shouldn't skimp on. You only get one chance to ensue waterproof integrity at this stage of construction.
Below ground waterproofing will be required for areas such as:
It's critical that we are involved in the planning and construction phase to provide the best outcome for waterproof integrity. With several options available, we can advise on which is best suited to your project.
Installing the proper membrane on the "Positive" (the Outside surface) side of the wall is absolutely the best practice method. And with this, there are many systems (Liquid and Sheet systems) that may meet your requirements.
We are Trained and Accredited to install both Liquid and high performance sheet membrane systems
"Negative" (Internal facing surface) side applications of membranes for below ground waterproofing are really not recommended as the only defence.
Negative Applications are more likely a Remedial process when the positive side membrane has failed or there is no physical access to the outside facing surface.
We can assist with Negative Applications and Remedial Waterproofing.
Engaging us early in the construction process may save time and money on waterproofing services.
We can link in with Builders and advise on best practice, Australian standards for waterproofing and perhaps systems they are not aware off.
We can stagger installs to suit your other contractors (such as sealing and applying membranes to first courses of block work to ensure the critical cold joint is sealed 100%) so as to achieve quality Waterproofing outcomes but not hold up any process.
