Find The Right Waterproofing Membrane For Your Building
At API Rope Access, we can help you find and install the right waterproofing membrane for you. A critical part of residential housing and commercial building practices, we can help you stop water from escaping from swimming pools, cavities and prevent its entry from extreme weather conditions. An effective water tight material will stop the passage of water into walls and habitable areas, protecting your area from water leaks and preventing the need for cladding replacement. Most surfaces will be vulnerable without the adequate drainage provided by a waterproofing sheet membrane. These waterproofing systems are typically installed in the following areas:
Keep Your Building Safe And Dry As You Brave The Australian Climate
Australia’s climate is known for its high humidity and heavy downpours as well as rising sea levels and increasing flood events. There isn’t a more important time to install adequate waterproofing membrane on your property. At API Rope Access, we provide a wide variety of waterproofing solutions suitable for concrete structure and construction works. With our experience, we understand which material works best for your site according to your facade design.
This way, you can prevent major water ingress, which can cause various problems from rotting timber framing and flooring, rusty pipes, cracked concrete and undermine foundations as well as create mould infestations. An effective waterproofing membrane layer will keep your building safe and dry while also reducing the costs of your heating bill.
Restore Your Building With A Suitable Waterproofing Solution
Waterproofing membranes play an important role in restorations and facade repairs. Heritage buildings that suffer from corrosion and water based damage can benefit from design changes. Poor construction and rising groundwater levels necessitate the need for an installation that offers good protection. Slumping foundations, damp basements and mould are some common signs of a water issue that needs immediate correction. While there is a vast selection of waterproofing membranes available, it’s essential to understand which one is the right choice for you. Some membranes are multipurpose while others are designed for highly specific applications. On a general note, membranes need to be flexible, capable of expanding and contracting when there are temperature changes that cause the building surface to move. Which type of waterproofing membrane is right for you may be determined by the following conditions:
