Waterproofing & durability system for concrete construction.

Did you know – A complete system is available, waterproofing the concrete itself?

Why Do You Need a Multi-Part Concrete Waterproofing System?

Concrete waterproofing is a notoriously challenging segment of the industry, in design, methods and construction.

For concrete waterproofing, you may have thought that membranes are the only approach. However, these have some significant drawbacks including cost and the difficulty of remediating failures. There are also significant safety and project schedule disadvantages. Multiple parties are involved and must work closely together for a fully successful outcome.

Our holistic, multi-part concrete waterproofing system offers an advanced alternative to membranes in a wide range of situations. The system is safe, quick, and easy, and helps your schedule management.
