Waterproofing services for basements.
In recent years, Auckland has seen a dramatic rise in the construction of multi-storey buildings, in particular mixed-use and residential tower developments.
One factor common in most of these is a basement structure used for car parking, storage and utility areas. These basements need long-term waterproofing solutions.
Any solution must be able to last the expected design life of the building and more. Leave a legacy for the longevity of the structure!
Moisture, Steel Corrosion, and Structural Integrity Not only is it crucial to keep the usable space dry, but it is also imperative to maintain the integrity of the structure itself.
Moisture is the biggest factor in corrosion of reinforcing steel. As you may know, water can seep through perfectly intact concrete, given enough back pressure (e.g. forced by gravity).
To achieve a dry result, you need to waterproof the concrete itself. This provides a barrier against seepage which is not dependent on the durability of membranes or tanking.
