West Chester, Pennsylvania (prsubmissionsite) October 17, 2019 – Waterproof Caulking and Restoration, a Pennsylvania waterproofing company, just released a guide explaining what is waterproofing and what can be waterproofed in buildings.
To avoid water damage, waterproofing certain areas of the building you are in comes with many benefits. Waterproofing is the formation of impervious barriers over surfaces of foundations, roofs, walls, and other structures of a building to prevent water penetration through these structures and entering the interior. Common materials used to waterproof include cementitious material, bituminous material, liquid waterproofing membrane, and polyurethane liquid membrane. Often waterproofing is a requirement for basements, bathrooms, kitchens, balconies, decks, and roofs.
Basement waterproofing is necessary to prevent leaks, humidity, and musty odors from entering your home. Waterproofing the walls, floors, and cracks in the foundation will keep the basement dry. Waterproofing your bathroom starts with the walls to prevent mold, mildew, and rot. It is also recommended for the floors and ceilings to keep water from seeping through the floorboards and help usher moist air out of the bathroom. Kitchens benefit from waterproofing since there are so many nooks and crannies that split and crack that you may not even see. Waterproofing your kitchen is good for under the sink cabinets and faucets, the kitchen floor, vertical surfaces, and the backsplash. Waterproofing the lining between where your balconies, decks, and roofs to the rest of your home is also a great preventative tactic to keep moisture from entering your home when it rains.
