Internal Waterproofing

Internal Waterproofing

Waterproofing is required when earth bears against a structure, whether its 100mm or 10 metres. This is because earth provides a passage for water under pressure contained inthe ground to enter the fabric of the building.

Any structure can be affected by water penetration whether its a small residential or large commercial development. You need to protect your property from this ingress of water.

Protection can be achieved using a number of methods. British Standard BS8102 2009 code of practice for protection of below ground structures against water from the ground defines these methods into three types of waterproofing protection:

  • Type A- (BARRIER) PROTECTION – Protection against water ingress which is dependent on a separate barrier system applied to the structure.
  • Type B – (STRUCTURALLY INTEGRAL) PROTECTION – Protection against water ingress which is provided by the structure.
  • Type C- (DRAINED)PROTECTION – Protection against water ingress into usable spaces which is provided by incorporation of an appropriate internal water management system.
