Waterproofing is one
of the most critical, yet neglected subjects because the common man is not exposed
to the concrete technology. He just wonders and is shocked when he sees leakage
in his building, but most of the time he considers it as inconvenience rather
than a serious matter.
infiltration causes major problems to a structure. Water damages a building first
cosmetically then structurally. It is important to realize that by the time a
stain shows up on the interior of your building most likely irreversible damage
has been caused to the exterior. Water soaked roof insulation will never dry out.
moisture in insulation can also decay a roof deck and will cause roofs to fail
prematurely. Water entering walls will rust steel relieving angles and carrying
beams, which support the structure. Moisture penetrating reinforced concrete structures
carry chloride ions, which will rust reinforcing bars causing them to expand in
size resulting in spalling of concrete. As one begins to understand the mechanics
of water infiltration one begins to understand the importance of keeping a building
enters the building and can have immediate and long term undesired effects. Apart
from damage to the building contents, structural damage is unavoidable if the
problem persists. Water damage can be compared to fire as a cause of building
decay and deterioration. Water is hydrophilic and to convert it into hydrophobic
is the definition of waterproofing.
