We are a multi skilled company providing turnkey solutions water ingress related issues. We understand your need for quality service, work ethics, reliability and a high standard of workmanship. We provide solutions to all water ingress related issues, and are well capable to remedy the issue. We do all the necessary work from start to finish. The waterproofing and the repairs of the damage caused by the water ingress.
For the waterproofing of balconies, roofs, parapets, walls, basements, retaining walls and showers. We use different waterproofing systems and the correct application of the system for the area to be treated. Waterproofing failure is usually an incorrect application of the system according to manufacturer's standards. There is also the process for the application of the system which cannot be compromised, the process needs to be followed and short cuts to save time can cause failure of the waterproofing project.
The torch on of Modified Bitumen Waterproofing Membranes is ideal for sustaining harsh weather conditions and offering complete water damage protection that is impact and tear resistant. Torch-on coatings provide excellent elasticity, ensuring all usual movement is well accommodated, restricting any unnecessary structural damage and costly long-term repairs. Two layered ‘torch-on’ systems are to be used in Southern Africa due to the thermal movement from high temperatures from the sun and the constant UV.
Self Adhesive Waterproofing
This waterproofing is a high-performance, self-adhesive sheet membrane constructed from an oriented laminate of high density polyethylene sheeting laminated to a bitumen-polymer modified adhesive compound. Areas where this waterproofing is applied must be clean and free from dust. Before the application of this waterproofing a Neoprene Primer must be applied. This primer has been specifically designed to improve the adhesion of self-adhesive waterproofing membranes to concrete, masonry, timber and metal surfaces. Areas of use Counter flashing, Ridge capping, Pipe dressings, Gutter sealing, Flat roof repairs, Valley linings, Roof sheet laps, Covering drive screws, Counter flashing for torch applied membranes, showers. (For tiling purposes there is a specific stick specially designed to receive tiles)
Cementitious waterproofing coatings are breathable, seamless coatings used to provide positive and negative side barrier on concrete and masonry surfaces. It must be applied to clean concrete or masonry surfaces because it chemically reacts to elements in the concrete or masonry to create a waterproof barrier. Various cementitious waterproofing products are available and can be used in a variety of areas. We have used this product very successfully on balconies and showers.
Concrete and cement is porous. Its tunnel-like capillaries are a natural part of its mass, and permit the passage of water and other liquids. It is a chemical treatment that would fill these capillaries to prevent the penetration of water and other liquids from any direction. By means of diffusion, the reactive chemicals in Crystalline waterproofing products use water as a migrating medium to enter and travel down the capillaries of the concrete. This process precipitates a chemical reaction between the product, moisture and the by-products of cement hydration, forming a new non-soluble crystalline structure. This integral structure fills the capillary tracts rendering the concrete waterproof. These products create a negative water barrier meaning that if water come from the inside of the wall it will stop it.
Liquid-applied waterproofing membranes are designed to give you the best possible moisture protection. These liquid-applied products provide a monolithic, seamless fluid membrane and are well-known for their ease of application. These membranes cure to form an elastic waterproof seal that can be applied using a roller or brush. It’s durable membranes feature strong adhesive properties and will bond with most surfaces. A liquid waterproofing membrane is essential for protecting many building structures.
The benefits of this process lies in its simplicity to apply. The joint free process is the most important benefit as there is significantly no chances of seepage of water unlike in roll sheet Waterproofing Membrane and other water proofing methods. You can cover larger area in a day and if applied next day can start overlapping the layer finished last day with spray liquid waterproofing membrane.
