What is Waterproofing?

The term Waterproofing is usually applied to the upper areas of a building. Different products can be used to prevent water ingress. Choosing the correct product is critical to the long-term solution of the problem, many products carry guarantees when properly applied, therefore it is very important to use a properly trained contractor, who can match his application guarantee to that of the manufacturer. Waterproofing a foundation requires the same care as damp-proofing regarding surface and drain pipe treatment, but is much more exacting in the treatment of the wall itself.

What is Damp-Proofing?

Damp Proofing is a term which describes the variety of treatments that are applied to prevent damp-problems from affecting your property. However, damp proofing is known as a type of waterproofing for constructed walls where a damp-proofing barrier is placed in walls and floors. Damp-proofing works as a long term prevention to moisture decay. Concerning walls and foundations, damp proofing prevents moisture and water passing through to interior spaces. Thus, damp-proofing course helps prevent timber decay and structural damage by preventing outbreaks of dry and wet rot.

There is quite a difference between dampproofing and waterproofing. Dampproofing is intended to keep soil moisture out, while waterproofing keeps out both moisture and liquid water.
