Why Waterproofing? This High-Tech Treatment Offers More Than Water Resistance

Foundation problems spell the doom of any building, whether it’s a state of the art shopping mall or a 100-square-foot garage. As the experts at Apex Water Proofing will tell you, the damage to the majority of failing foundations is caused by water.

Most concrete formulas aren’t waterproof, and they’re easily permeated by water vapor leaching out of the surrounding soil or gathering inside the foundation. In addition to making a nice damp home for all manner of molds and bacteria, a lack of good water proofing can let water build up in the soil around the foundation, causing it to buckle or sink. Waterproofing foundation concrete helps repel water and redirect it to the drains at the base of the foundation.

Water and weather-proofing outdoor surfaces, from parking lots to decks and patios, is equally important for safety and upkeep.
