Waterproofing Basements

In homes where not apply waterproofing basements, and the constant dampness and mold eventually enters the load-bearing structures and elements of the foundation. Droplets of water fall into the most narrow, sometimes not visible cracks, and when cold water freezes, expands, and leads to extensive and multiple injuries. These injuries can be avoided by ordering service waterproofing a construction company, and can perform waterproofing yourself. If you choose to rely on our own strength, be sure to pay attention to the choice of material waterproofing. Waterproofing material should possess the following properties: – breathability – materials "breathe" – double protection (protective layer + penetration) – application materials can be either manual or mechanized – after completion of processing the materials are chemically inert – work with the materials does not require special training and special safety measures – high resistance to aggressive media (mineral salts, alkalis, carbonic acid gas, oil) – Materials capable of "self-healing" cracks – temperature range Operating temperature range is identical to the material exploitation of the concrete (from? 40 C to +90 C). – The materials do not contain solvents, do not secrete sweat, Radiation Safety – the materials are not toxic and ognebezopasny..
