External Waterproofing Solutions, Systems & Basements
Externally applied Waterproofing systems for use below ground are favoured by many specifiers. External Waterproofing systems have many advantages, primary of which is excluding/managing free water to prevent entry into the building. Ease of installation during the construction phase and the reduction in detailing can also present significant advantages. There are however disadvantages that must be considered and these can often be the deciding factor in which type of Waterproofing system we recommend.
There are numerous types of external systems to choose from, each requiring careful design and installation. Selection of which type of system to employ depends on multiple factors including geotechnical information, assessment and classification of the existing water table, type of structure to which the Waterproofing system is being applied and the provision and effect of external drainage.
