It refers to waterproofing of wet areas such as swimming pools, balconies, toilets/bathrooms and kitchens. Why it is critical is because of the constant use of water. By and large, the points of leakages are weak areas such as wall joints, joints between cisterns and pipes, and faulty piping materials that corrode. So if the moisture penetrate through the floor or walls to the concrete, it can cause extensive damage. Thus, it is important to have an impermeable barrier over the concrete so as to prevent the penetration of moisture.

Most people are confused with the terms “water resistant”, “water repellent”, “hydrophobic” or “no hacking” waterproofing membrane which treat the substrate surface to reduce and/or restricts the movement of water. While waterproofing membrane is a coating applied under tiling that protect concrete and doesn’t allow water to pass through it all.
Most incidents of water leakage occurred at pipe penetrations and structural joints between floor and wall. As a matter of fact, the walls at shower area and basin area also require waterproofing. Because these areas are the source of splashing and seepage.
Not to mention, poor workmanship is the number one cause of waterproofing failures. Common reasons includes:
So whether it’s renovation or new construction, waterproofing is the most crucial step for any types of wet areas. For one thing, wet area waterproofing is required to ensure that any water leaks are fully contained. If wet area waterproofing fails, the damage can be severe. Consequently, rectification may involve stripping out the whole wet area and starting over.
Generally common water leakages occur in toilets, bathrooms and wet areas e.g. balconies, swimming pools are:
Flood infusion treatment is a unique treatment that provides excellent waterproofing without the need for hacking or other intrusive works. The infusion technique utilize crystalline waterproofing technology, enabling concrete to self-seal through the development of needle-like crystals. These crystals penetrate concrete pores and capillaries to seal and block water penetration. As a result, achieving watertight concrete structures.
A liquid applied coat that makes almost any substrate surfaces water-repellent. The technology uses nano particles to penetrate deeply into pores capillaries without clogging up the substrate. Treated substrate surfaces remain breathable.
Bathroom or Toilet waterproofing involves applying a physical barrier to the floors and walls, so as to prevent water penetration into the structure. The waterproofing membrane is applied first, before tiles are laid to protect the walls and subfloor.
