Exterior waterproofing is one of most efficient and reliable ways to perform waterproofing of your property. This technical solution includes 2 protections – damp proofing and waterproofing.
Damp proofing protects your foundation structure elements from the effects of moisture in the soil. The damp proofing is an asphalt basecoat applied by hand or sprayed on your foundation wall.
Waterproofing has been designed to insure redirecting of underground water away from the foundation wall to make sure that water won’t seep through. The waterproofing collects all the water in the soil and re-directs it to special drains (weeping tiles) to drain it away.
