Why is waterproofing necessary?

Waterproofing is important to consider when you want to decrease the amount of exposure your concrete technology encounters. Avoiding the issue of moisture collecting within the house means you might be left with a strange damp wrinkled look on your ceilings and walls. Here are a few important reasons that waterproofing is necessary.

Protection

Your walls and ceiling are all vulnerable to the infiltration of moisture and sun rays. The agents penetrating the walls can cause the walls to crack and rust to form. Sealing the walls and ceiling with waterproofing acts as a protective layer to resist the agents from making contact with the walls and the ceiling. It also prevents any seepage occurring. Waterproofing will also prevent damage to cause your plasterboard to swell, paint from blistering, damage to beams and other aesthetics within the house.  Protection against Mould collecting. Mould affects the structural integrity of the building. If not attended to it can start to eat away at cellulose materials like wood.

Save

The cost of installing waterproofing in your home can be hefty however prevention is always better than cure. The cost of fixing the walls and ceilings after water damage can be larger than just installing the waterproofing. Damage can be unexpected and deeper than what is seen at face value.

Prevent any health issues from arising

Moisture in the walls and ceiling lead to mould and mildew growth. This means that spores can form and lift into the air.  If you breathe in these spores they can target your lungs and cause serious health problems. With waterproofing, you can rest assured knowing no unexpected health risks are infesting themselves in the walls.

Long term

If the waterproofing is put up early enough to reduce the opportunity of humidity to filter through the walls. It also acts as a foundation for further work to be done. This also means you have peace of mind knowing that you walls and ceilings are well protected.
