Water Proofing Repairs and Installation Sydney
BRW IS ABLE TO SUPPLY AND APPLY A WIDE RANGE of high quality WESTOX external coatings for buildings as AN EFFECTIVE measure to protect against weather and contribute the longevity of both residential and commercial buildings.
GENERALLY older structures and those near the coast, are subject to far greater weathering effects and damage. Often, roof slabs, balconies and masonry wall areas are subject to ingress of moisture, salt and other contaminants, which means deterioration is more rapid.
The results from this mean costly repairs if the property is neglected or inappropriately treated.
BRW Remedial is the best in the business when it comes to waterproofing buildings.
Determining if your property has a water damage issue
The following points are key indications that your building has water damage:
- Rotting carpet or floor coverings.
- Corrosion of metals such as steel reinforcement, lintels, beams, flashings and door frames.
- Swelling and rotting timbers like skirtings, architraves, floor joists, beams, framing, wall boards; and de-lamination of tiling.
- Blistering of paint and plaster; and deterioration of facades.
- Damp, musky smell and mildew.
- Signs of calcium staining to the front edge of your balconies
Causes of Water leaks
The most common causes of waterproofing failure are:
- The waterproofing membrane is old and needs replacing.
- Building movement as a new building settles, the movement of joints of the structure may cause a tear in the membrane system or overstretch it.
- Having been previously incorrectly diagnosed and repaired.
- Lack of expertise of earlier tradesmen, or improper products.
- Lack of attention to penetrations and corner details.
- New penetrations such as pipe work, cables etc.
- New materials and incompatible material combinations.
One of the No 1. reasons for failure is the decision to chose the lowest priced quote when waterproofing BUT the saying " you only get what you pay for " couldn't be more true when it comes to waterproofing !
