Paint-on Acrylic Waterproofing in Cape Town

Acrylic Waterproofing

Acrylic Waterproofing is probably the most popular form of waterproofing which comprises an acrylic-based waterproof compound similar to paint.

It is applied directly to the surface or strengthened with the use of a special fibre membrane, depending on the situation and the product being used.
Suitable for most roof types & joints.

Appling Cementitious Waterproofing

Cementitious Waterproofing

Cementitious Waterproofing should be applied to areas that are subject to moisture or often exposed to water. This includes Showers, Balconies, Ponds, Swimming Pools etc.

Cementitious Waterproofing should be applied directly to cement surfaces and works best if mixed in with the cement during construction.

Application of Torch-on Waterproofing

Torch on Waterproofing

Torch-on waterproofing involves melting or the burning on, of sun resistant (UV protective) Bitumen sheets to the affected surface(s). It is best applied to flat outdoor surfaces like roofs, roof flashings, parapet walls and gutter joints.

Once applied, it is recommended to paint over the bitumous sheeting with a UV protective paint to pro-long its lifespan.


Waterproofing Services

Internal Waterproofing

This is the application of different waterproofing methods to protect the internal walls of a structure from moisture. The interior walls and floors are treated with a suitable waterproofing product.

External waterproofing is applied to the outside of the building or structure to prevent water or moisture, present in the ground, from getting into the wall cavity.

Basement Waterproofing

Basement waterproofing or ‘tanking’ is applied to sub-terrain structures like Basements, underground parking areas & cellars, which are more susceptible to water damage.

Interior and Exterior Damp Proofing

Damp Proofing

Damp proofing consists mostly of solving lateral damp, also known as penetrating damp or from rising damp.

Lateral damp is when water or moisture is coming through the sides of your walls due to structural defects. Water gets into the walls and moisture seeps through into your premises.

Rising Damp is usually caused by ground water that is pushing up into your premises due to issues with the Damp Proof Course installed during construction. We can assist with all types of Damp Proofing…
