Waterproofing

As often as not, the obvious signs of concrete cancer, and other structural issues are the tip of the iceberg. What we often find upon investigation is that the issues are all too often caused by water ingress into the concrete slab where it reacts with the reinforcing steel.

Once the steel can be treated or removed and replaced, the slab needs to be protected to prevent the issue occurring again. This is where correct waterproofing technique is of paramount importance.

With extensive experience across residential, commercial and industrial properties, we are often regarded as one of the most knowledgeable and professional companies in the waterproofing field.

Waterproofing Methodology

Having identified the original issues, we will take the time to ensure they do not occur again. We will undertake extensive substrate investigation, analysis of flashings and other elements around the slab to determine what measures to take and the most effective and viable waterproofing system for the particular job at hand.

The waterproofing systems we offer include:

  • Liquid membranes
  • Torch on membranes
  • Loose layered sheet membranes
  • Hypalon bandages
  • Tanking membranes
  • "Negative waterproofing" through injection
  • Applied chemical solutions
  • Polyurethane sealants

No job is too demanding, nor too large. We have applied our water proof membranes to a number of large and complex jobs around Australia including the Department of Education Building and Reserve Bank of Australia.
