Podium Slab Waterproofing - Risk involved

An effective and durable waterproofing system is absolutely critical to ensure the long-term durability of the structure and to keep maintenance costs obsolete by avoiding possible repair. In sensitive buildings areas like Podium slabs where you plan for water bodies, landscape, children play area sports facilities car parking and drive ways etc proper waterproofing system helps to keep out water and pollutants thereby preventing leakages and also protecting structural elements and embedded steel reinforcement from corrosion damage. A good water- proofing system has to ensure that it keeps performing at optimum level for a very long period of time, even beyond the warranty period to provide maximum value and comfort to the end-user.

Podium Slab Waterproofing

Podium Slab Waterproofing - Requirements
