Waterproofing has wide range of applications: roofs, foundations, terraces, collection tanks and storage tanks; according to the specific performance needs of the structure different materials and solutions are used.
Each flat roof has its own problems and needs, some are driveways, some are used by pedestrians, others house a green roof, so the solutions use different materials according to different functions: bituminous or synthetic membranes (PVC, polyethylene, polyolefin, etc.) or cement mortars with added polymers.
Good waterproofing is based on proper design, the care and careful implementation of the laying surface and the perfect execution of the details such as vertical joints, drains, thresholds and skylights and is essential to the building’s performance over time.
The insulation must be paired taking into account the characteristics and functions of the roof, finding the best solution to protect from rain seepage and condensation, and compatible with the waterproof membrane.
Good waterproofing guarantees excellent living comfort, because the environment will be dry, furthermore greater durability of the building will be guaranteed, enabling the avoidance of costly periodic maintenance due to leaks, remaking flooring, detachment or oxidation of metal reinforcements with an associated inevitable degradation of the structure.
