How We Waterproof Concrete in Finished Spaces
Step 1: Prepare the surface
Step 2: Repair the surface
Step 3: Apply sealant to the surface
Step 4: Clean the newly waterproofed surface
Our team will return to inspect the impervious surface for any problems. Then, we proceed to clean the entire surface. We polish it to make the new sealant stand out.
Additional Step: Apply a finishing product.
Our team can apply a finishing coat on the newly waterproofed surface. Choose from an epoxy-based paint or a clear topcoat to make it look shiny. Many clients opt for this additional step to make the most of the waterproof concrete repair service.
Why Hire a Professional?
Recently, the DIY movement has gained better traction. This is because of the availability of tutorials and step-by-step guides online. But some renovation projects, like waterproofing concrete, are still best left to the professionals. Otherwise, you risk damaging your concrete structure.
- Failing to identify all of the minor damage that needs to be repaired will leave you with waterproofed concrete that has structural integrity issues.
- Failing to use the right sealant solution will leave you with a concrete structure that is still prone to moisture damage.
- Failing to cover the entire surface with sealant or failing to spread it out evenly will lead to weaker areas, which can lead to moisture entering and damaging the concrete.
Any mistakes in the repair and waterproofing processes will lead to issues that can significantly affect the concrete’s long-term performance. Additionally, they can lead to mistakes that will require costly repairs. Avoid these scenarios by choosing to hire a professional like Armourcrete.
