Moisture damage is one of the most common headaches of facility managers and building owners. Moisture continuously seeks a way to gain entry into the building. It can appear in common liquid form, or enter the property through the air. It can be brought by wind, rain, or seepage from underground. An effective waterproofing system can keep water out, and even drive it out when it does come in.
Waterproofing contractors install effective barrier systems in buildings and facilities to:
1. Prolong building life
2. Improve indoor air quality
3. Increase energy efficiency
4. Comply with existing building codes
Waterproofing for Longer-Lasting Structures
Waterproofing contractors consider the various ways that moisture enters the property in designing effective waterproofing systems. The presence of moisture should be managed properly to avoid water-borne damages. There is constant danger of water erosion taking place undetected. Water can continually weaken the building’s foundation through time.
Waterproofing contractors install water barrier systems that prevent moisture or water vapor from coming inside the building or above ground. They also design barrier systems that allow the building to “breathe” or channel any moisture out of the building.
