A wide range of building defects can result in water ingress in a building. Dampmen supply a number of options for waterproofing, the choice of waterproofing will depend on a few factors, most importantly the nature of the structure. A common choice is a membrane waterproofing system. We specialise in cementitious based membrane systems which can be applied to most masonry surfaces, provided that the substrate has been prepared correctly.
Construction joints and expansion joints can form weak points in any waterproofing system, therefore even in structures that have been built with using waterproofing concrete, consideration will still need to be given to the waterproofing of construction joints and expansion joints.
