The Waterproofing Toronto is a regional trade association that is dedicated to protecting and preventing leaks (wet) and cracks to exterior foundation. Waterproofing is very important as it helps keep your home dry and protected from water infiltration, insect infestation and mold. We offers many different methods of waterproofing such as: Cementitious Waterproofing, Liquid Waterproofing Membrane, Bituminous Membrane, Bituminous Coating and Polyurethane Liquid membrane. Cementitious waterproofing is the easiest method that waterproofing contractors uses.
The materials for cementitious waterproofing is easily available and they are fairly easy to mix and apply. This method is often used in internal wet areas that is not exposed to sunlight and weathering. Liquid waterproofing membrane method is a thin coating which consists of a primer coat and two top coats, which are applied by spray, roller or trowel. The liquid cures into a rubbery coating on the wall, and is very durable. Bituminous Coating is commonly used on surfaces such as concrete and foundations in basements – it is not suitable for outdoor conditions because sunlight makes it become fragile and very brittle. Bituminous Membrane method is mostly used to protect residential and commercial buildings in roof conservation, in the form of roofing felt or roll roofing products. Roofing felt is the material used to make roof shingles and is used as an underlay protection barrier.
Lastly the Polyurethane liquid membrane waterproofing method is used for flat roof area that is exposed to weathering. This waterproofing method is a little more expensive, but offers higher flexibility because the materials are very adhesive, which creates a seamless barrier around the structure.Find out which method is the right one for you – Let us be your solution to your problem and contact basement waterproofing contractors for our trusted expertise and protection for your home.
