WATERPROOFING OF BUILDINGS
1010401 WATERPROOFING OF BUILDINGSWaterproofing is considered to be an important part in modern construction. The word 'waterproofing' may be a misnomer as it is virtually impossible to provide absolute exclusion of water or moisture from a masonry/concrete structure. The process is basically an attempt to exclude maximum amount of water or moisture from a structure.Waterproofing is important because it keeps a building dry, reduces internal humidity, and results in making a building more comfortable to work. It is also important to the integrity of the building itself. Typically, building waterproofing is done in several different ways to create multiple barriers for water so that it cannot enter a structure.
