Waterproofing

There is no single approach that will work for every liquid intrusion situation; it’s critical you understand the strengths and limitations of each waterproofing.

How does Fort Sands prevent water ingress?

The type of waterproofing method in waterproofing depends purely on the area of application. In construction, a building or structure is waterproofed with the use of membranes and coatings to protect contents, and structural integrity. This is one of the primary and integral parts of a building envelope.

 

Finding the water intrusion and diagnosing the complete waterproofing system is critical in identifying the root cause of the problem.

 

Sometimes it’s not about the waterproofing, it’s about the landscaping and how water is managed around the property. Getting rid of the water before it gets to the structure is sometimes even more important than the method of waterproofing.

 

Fort Sands has worked on many different structures: Water Treatment Plants, Industrial plants, Chemical Plants, Food and Beverage processing facilities, Parking Structures & Lots, and commercial properties.
