The OnlineWaterproofingShop – buy online this unique range of waterproofing and building maintenance products , unmatched performance, providing solutions to common and not so common building maintenance and waterproofing for Architects, Builders, Building Maintenance Professionals, Waterproofers and DIY’s everywhere
Having experienced and solved many waterproofing issues over the last 25 years I have decided to put the onlinewaterproofingshop online to allow customers to improve their knowledge about day to day issues involving problems which arise in new & older buildings and be able to gain access to products which, solving many day to day issues, they don’t know exist. Then buy waterproofing products online.
Most buildings require waterproofing systems to protect the various areas of the construction from the elements. The maintenance and ongoing protection of building structures involves the selection of the correct of waterproofing membranes and coatings. These waterproofing products protect all the constructional building elements and contents as well structural integrity for the life of the building.Design elements are used to keep the water away building structure, use of waterproofing products with varying degrees of waterproofness, depending on where their intended use eg. paint coatings on external walls usually are only water resistance.
Membranes used include acrylic, bituminous, cementitious, clear coatings, and many more.
Efflorescence is not only unsightly, caused by the presence of water in masonry, and over time causes the degradation, weakening the strength of the masonry, corrosion of the steel reinforcement thus reducing the life of the building structure. Salts and efflorescence removal from and new or old constructions is essential to maximise the life cycle of a building. Maintenance of buildings affected by efflorescence, historical and public buildings, walls, floors, masonry, brick, block structures may include treatments with clear sealers and other waterproofing products
Concrete Restoration and Corrosion Protection
Cementitious products are used in the maintenance and restoration of concrete and masonry building structures such as concrete spalling (concrete cancer), filling or leveling concrete floors or walls, setting of manhole covers.
The most challenging Concrete repair was for the Navy: Repairing and sealing of 250 and 400 ton FERRO-CONCRETE barges using Maxrest and Maxseal. This repair carried out on inside to prevent sinking and from outside as preventative maintenance, to waterproof repairs and eliminate salt water ingress. https://youtu.be/ZXEhzPgNO2M
Oxide converters and anti-corrosive coatings provide protection of reo/ reinforcing bars, rusted iron, steel found on poorly maintained building structure, especially in aggressive environments eg. close to the ocean where high salt content creates electrolysis which hastens degradation of the concrete and the rusting of the steel.
Corrosion protection materials also protect the reo against attack from strong chemical agents-diluted alkali and acid solutions.
Construction Joints in new construction need caulking to prevent the water penetration through podium slabs, roofs walls and other penetrations in wall and slabs. The deterioration of control joints from lack of proper building maintenance, poor choice of raw materials in the construction phase, all result in further water penetrations which can destroy the entire waterproofing system once penetrated ie. leaking so it is of high priority that small leaks from gaps between slabs are re-caulked as quickly as possible.
Brickwork and mortar lines also need to be re-caulked from time to time to maintain the waterproofness of the waterproofing system.
