Cold Waterproofing

The cold applied liquid waterproofing systems are typically one part liquid rubber type materials that are squeegeed into place with or without felt reinforcement. These materials are typically used in below grade basement walls and horizontal decks which may be roofs of parking garages, basements, occupied below grade spaces. The waterproofing is installed directly to the structural wall or deck, typically concrete, then insulation, protection and or drainage board is installed with final topping of pavers, concrete, soil to plant grass or even garden vegetative coverings.

Hot Rubberized Asphalt Waterproofing

The Hot Rubberized Asphalt waterproofing systems are usually applied hot with a notched squeegee to a monolithic, solid deck of some type, but typically concrete. Some configurations have a reinforcing layer of felt material in between layers of hot rubberized asphalt. This roof is always covered with protection from the sun's ultraviolet lights. Then, insulation, drainage board, concrete or garden vegetative materials, sometimes pavers or photovoltaic panels are used for coverings. Read More

There are many different types of sheet waterproofing materials. There are Ethylene Diene Butadiene Monomer (EPDM), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Self Adhered Rubberized Asphalt or Butyl adhesive / polyethylene composite products, and several other sheet materials.
