Our Awesome Culture

The founder of Waterproof Lab identified the need to offer specialist waterproofing solutions to the professionals like architects and engineers. This was clear from the diabolical state of the industry that generally seemed to lack work ethics and truly offer unique and lasting waterproofing solutions that work. Most importantly to build a company based on values that are solutions based, look after their people and honesty.  The rest will take care of itself.  Waterproof Lab has become a reputable force in the local waterproofing market known for their honesty and solution based specialised waterproofing systems and methodology.  

Waterproof Lab continuously strives to update their knowledge by attending leading international waterproofing conferences and exhibitions and now imports reputable brands that allows the South African Building industry to compete with best waterproofing systems in the world.  Currently, Waterproof Lab is the sole importer of Firestone RubberGard™ EPDM rubber membranes and accessories. This allows architects, engineers and building contractors to offer sustainable waterproofing solutions for flat  roofs, water containment structures like dams and reservoirs, commercial box gutters, balconies & basements.

Solutions Based Outcomes

Waterproof Lab strives to upgrade the standard of waterproofing in the South African Building Industry. Our thinking is fresh. We think out of the box for our clients and find solutions that most cannot. Our waterproofing systems and solutions are tried and tested internationally.  We only associate with the top brands worldwide, that are proven in this industry. We continuously upgrade our skill sets and offer training to our industry, with one goal in mind – to be the leading professional South African brand that is known for its attention to detail & customer service.

Looking After Our People

Waterproof Lab only has people who want to be here. Our team strives to support one another at all times. We believe that if we have happy people, who care about their customers, are passionate about making a difference and have high standards all round, then in turn our clients will be happy!

Honesty and Positive Human Values

Waterproof Lab only advise clients on solutions that will work in the long term. We do not offer short term solutions. We strive to remove the cost of ongoing maintenance for clients due to inferior waterproofing applications and solutions. 

We will rather walk away from a project than sell a client short.  We understand that by offering honest advice to our clients, whether they be architects, engineers, building contractors, or any other end user with complex waterproofing problems and solutions, we will grow our market share and our reputation. Happy clients tell others, period!  We believe, if our team strives for positive human values, they will care for everybody they deal with.
