Injecting cement based grouts is the best method to eliminate small voids below and with in concrete slabs. Injection of Floadd mixed with cement will reduce the risk of concrete cracks. This will support the concrete and prevent water ingress.
Toilet/kitchen Sunken Areas
Just like the sunken terrace, the waterproofing is very important here also. Just imagine a damp bathroom roof. It is so unhygenic. The best suitable water proofing for sunken areas is a Two Component Cementitious Polymer based water proofing material. However Epoxy based products are also recommended.
Swimming Pool Waterproofing
Imagine a beautifully built swimming pool, not being used because of water leakages. Swimming Pools, being large water holding capacity, require special water proofing treatment. It requires a complete system with Injection Grouting, Joint Repairs, Acrylic Coatings reinfirced with Fibre Glass. Proper corner treatment should be done.
Injection Grouting materails
Basements are the most important part of a house. A bad basement can ruin the entire living experieance of a house owner. People build basement for varied reasons. Basements are built to be used for Entertainment, Indoor Sports, Study, Office space, Storage and even living spaces. Basements are structures built in varied soils. Water in the soils leaking into basements is a problem that has troubles home owners . The water may enter the basement through the walls, floors, and joints between them. Unfortunatly, over the years, contractors and houseowners have ignored importance of waterproofing of the basement at the time of concreting. Even if they have applied some waterproofing using variety of methods. Most of these methods have not been effective.
A wet or just damp basement is not suitable for any use. Moisture will get into the building materials and/or storage and cause mold, mildew, rot, bad smells, and damage to floor coverings, furniture, and stored personal items. These things never seem to get better over time. Basement dampness tends to get worse over time. So even if water seepage is only a once a year occurrence, it needs to be fixed before the basement is finished.
Basement Waterproofing depends upon stage when it is being done. Is it preventive waterproofing or corrective? Is it being done from Positive Side (Outside) or Negative Side (Inside). Injection Grouting, Pressure Grouting, Waterproof Mortars or Elastomaric Coating or a multi application of some of these.
Terrace Garden Waterproofing
Due to shrinking plot sizes, Terrace Garden are becoming very popular in cities these days. Apart from the planning and designing the structure for terrace garden. The structure requires additional reinforcement which should be designed by the structural engineer. While designing a terrace garden, following should be kept in mind:
Good Slope, andh
There are different treatments for waterproofing for terrace garden.
The application depends upon size, design and the structure of the Terrace Garden.
Roof/Terrace Sunken Area
In Modern construction terraces are sunken. Which means the bottom part of the terrace is flat and the beams are placed on the terrace. Such construction design requires very efficient waterproofing, as there are chances of water ponding in case the top surface fails.The hydrostatic pressure would be more then the flat terrace. Ideally the sunken areas should have waterproofing on the sunken surface as well as the plaster which is applied after filling the sunken area. Nano Polymerised Polymers or Elastomeric Coatings are the best for such surfaces.
We provide Products & Application for Thermal insulation for Roof and Terraces. We undertake requirement audit of the site and depending upon the site requirements design a suitable Thermal Insulation system.
