Waterproofing Retaining Wall
Remedial waterproofing is the process of repairing damage caused by a failed waterproofing system and the waterproofing system itself.Waterproofing is the biggest construction defect today and is the cause for millions of dollars in rectification works annually. The buildingindustry is slowly recognising this and acknowledging the importance of a waterproofer that has the knowledge to ensure the system lasts.Waterproofing typically costs 1-2% of the total build cost and while some choose the cheapest quote, this can leave an expensive repair bill.
Leaking showers, balconies, roof tops, planter boxes and retaining walls are quite common and in most cases will require the removal offixings & tiles followed by the replacement of any damaged substrates then reinstallation of the waterproofing system, tiling and fixings. Therepair bill can be that of a full renovation. Some businesses advertise to “fix leaking showers or balconies without removing tiles”, whilethese may yield short term success, they are not a permanent fix.
Water reactive injection systems prove valuable for many scenarios where the only solution is to repair the leak from the negative side.These systems work by using a high pressure pump to inject a water swellable polyurethane liquid into the crack or joint. Once thepolyurethane meets with the water it instantly swells and creates a pressure seal.
