A waterproofing membrane is a water-tight layer of material that is applied to a surface to avoid water leaks or damages. Waterproofing membranes are typically pre-formed or liquid-applied sheets. To minimize water penetration, they can be attached to or placed around the foundations (much like a structural slab). Waterproofing will assist stop water from seeping the foundation and safeguard the property from water damage, whether it's for your building's basement or roof. A waterproofing membrane is applied to the concrete to aid prevent water penetration while also making it easier to maintain. The waterproofing membrane can be used in the interior, such as in the case of repairs, the exterior, or in regions inaccessible to individuals, depending on the construction and requirement.
