Different Methods of Commercial Waterproofing That Experts Use

Waterproofing commercial buildings is quite different from waterproofing domestic properties. The reasons are pretty obvious and thus, professionals offering waterproofing services in Perth like anywhere else will follow any of the following methods to meet the unique needs of the structure of the properties in question.

Cementitious Waterproofing Services

This method of waterproofing probably involves the easiest materials, which are readily available from the stores supplying masonry products. Along with the customary waterproofing materials, the waterproofing contractors in Perth would also use an acrylic additive product, which they mix for getting a better bonding and to attain a more durable, solid coating.

This variety of waterproofing is mainly in commercial buildings as well as in a wide range of heavy duty engineering projects.

Liquid Waterproofing  

Liquid waterproofing is the method that is primarily used for waterproofing the roof of a commercial building  by applying a specially formulated and prepared liquid roof coating. Experts offering commercial waterproofing in Perth will use this type of waterproofing method to deal with any type of roof, including the pitched, flat and domed  roofs.

The coating forms into rubber-like elastomeric or elastic membrane, which is waterproof and is capable of stretching and retracting to its original shape, which causes no structural damage to the membrane itself.

Bituminous Waterproofing

This type of waterproofing involves the use of bitumen (coal tar pitch or asphalt), which is a mixed product that is chiefly made up of some organic liquids, which are sticky, waterproof, or viscous.

Polyurethane Waterproofing

Polyurethane is primarily made up of a pair of  components – base and reactor. One of them is Polyol, which acts as the base. The other one,  isocyanide is primarily the reactor component. These two components combine in a specific design ratio, to form a liquid coating that is suitable for various waterproofing applications.

Polyurethane is an extremely popular variety of waterproofing, much due to the ease of its installation. Unlike the other general waterproofing systems such as sheet membranes, liquid applied membranes, and the likes, this polyurethane application needs comparatively lesser skill and supervision on the part of the experts. Its application is pretty fast and this type of waterproofing treatment can be used in case of post construction applications, including the tiled surfaces. That’s why, the local floor tilers in Perth would suggest following this type of waterproofing for the tiled surfaces.

Bituminous Coating Waterproofing

This is another type of flexible waterproofing method, which acts as an excellent protective coating, as well as a flexible waterproofing agent, more so, when it comes to waterproofing  concrete foundations.

Bituminous Membrane Waterproofing

This is another bituminous waterproofing membrane, which is an extremely popular method that is used for low-sloped roofs.
