According to our broad experience in this industry, we always prefer to show our clients precisely how their problem can detriment their property if not regulated as soon as possible. We document and verify their current situation with the problem they’re facing. Once we’re done with that, we theorize about how intense this problem certainly is and how we can fix it. One of the ways we’ve used over the years to resolve similar issues is called Waterproofing Membranes. Keep on reading, because if you find any resemblance between your problem and this situation, Waterproofing membranes might be what you need. But let’s first understand what it is and how we use it.

What are Waterproofing Membranes?

To be very specific, Waterproofing Membranes are tiny sheets made out of a 100% moisture-proof substance through which we cover the upper-layer of the plane we want to make waterproof. In this process, it is precisely determined which surface needs more protection and which surface will work with the basic sheets because we always need to make sure that the work we deliver is spot-on. Once we’re done with it, our client can enjoy their lives without the endless hassle of figuring how to get rid of such troublesome situations.

The leakage of water usually takes place through undirected waterflow in apartments around the rooftop. So, when we fix the issues with roofed balconies, we apply these waterproofing membrane sheets in a diagonal direction, pointing the drainage pipes so that the water can easily flow out of the surface way before anything wrong happens. Sometimes our clients ask us if applying a tile above the waterproof sheet would be okay, and our answer is mostly yes since that way, it locks the surface away from water. Also, it enables our clients to customize their ambiance with the style and design they want to without compromising with the normal-looking sheets.

What is Liquid Applied Waterproofing Layers?

In this waterproofing method, we sprinkle the layering substance on that very surface or coat it with the same mix. When dried, the liquid waterproofing mix forms a thick rigid layer over that surface and holds everything in place. The best part is that when we apply the waterproofing sheets, we do not have any control over their size and thickness. Still, in liquid-applied waterproof layers, we can diversify it in however ways we want to because, after all, it’s a liquid. This is a crucial point to be remembered because that way, we’re able to adjust the mix’s liquidity and strength to work according to the clients’ needs.


Whenever we explain this methodology to our clients, they usually prefer the Liquid Applied Waterproof Layers above waterproofing sheets because they ease customization and precision that work according to their needs and requirements. Because we are inclined to serve our clients with perfection and the best-in-class services, we make sure to maintain appropriate thickness within the mix because we understand that this work is supposed to be done properly. Otherwise, if we or the client compromise on the liquid layer’s density, the layer might break sooner or later since thinner layers can effortlessly break into pieces, which isn’t safe. So now let’s look at the services that we offer and how we help our clients enjoy a hassle-free roof:

Damping in stood roofs is a terrible issue in some of the South-African regions, where experts and contract proprietors are encountered with this difficult, problematic situation of damping in stood roofs or slanted rooftops because of the misdirected flow of water and inappropriate water-proofing.

Terraces are some of the most prominent references of the initialization of water damping problems, which can cause massive damage if not controlled suitably while making sure all the works are done faultlessly. The most significant difficulty is that most of the waterproofing mixes sold in the market can’t resist any activity and breaks sooner or later. That is majorly the reason why we concentrate on making our own mix rather than purchasing it from the retail shops.
