Below Grade Water Proofing
Areas built below ground level experience unique risks when it comes to exposure to water and moisture. Without proper below-grade waterproofing, basements and other below-ground structures become vulnerable. Risks may include water damages over time as well as mold, mildew, and the potential for flooding.
Benefits of Below Grade Waterproofing
Water is one of the most damaging forces. It is especially destructive for concrete, wearing it down over time.
Waterproofing helps to keep water out of the places you don’t want it, extending the life of buildings and improving the health of those who work, live, and operate inside those buildings.
Benefits of investing in adequate below-grade waterproofing from the start include:
- Protecting concrete in below-grade areas, effectively extending their life and usefulness.
- Reducing the costs of maintaining and cleaning up below-grade areas of commercial buildings.
- Increasing property value, which is especially important to property managers and property management companies.
Effective below-grade waterproofing systems play vital roles in protecting buildings from water infiltration.
