How To Properly Waterproof Concrete?

Do you need some information on how to waterproof concrete? Your home, at some point, may have cracks in the cement that need repair or waterproofing. Here are some quick tips to consider, if you have to do some waterproofing or repairing of cracked cement.

Ensuring a waterproof concrete is an important measure of protection you can afford your property. Leakage and seepage are effective in destroying your home property or office building. The leakage or seepage may be small, but over time, the leakage will grow and the damage it can cause your property may be serious.

But even if the seepage is just small, it can still cause damage. If the leak is in the wall, all things-furniture, appliances and décor-may be damaged with the water or fluid that leaks. The same thing can be said if the leakage is in the basement.

Your expenses may double if you will not act as soon as possible. The damage the leak can cause may grow, plus you have to spend money to repair or replace damaged belongings. Doing a concrete damp-proofing is amenable, although it may take a few steps to accomplish.

First of all, you have to stop the leaks. Find the source of the leak or its cause and fix it. It is easy to detect the leakage. The area is usually damp and moisture begins to seep through it. It is best if you fix the problem by using an outside service company.

There are three causes of seepage. The water pressure from the source or anywhere from outside may have built up, forcing water to seep through the pipes. It could also be that the house has already started to deteriorate. Or, the common cause is when the quality of materials used in constructing the house is substandard.

So, after you have ensured that there are no cracks or holes in the area you would like to make waterproof concrete, apply a waterproofing compound directly to the affected area or area you would like to be waterproof.

Depending on the size of the cracks, there are appropriate products to apply. If the crack is just a hairline, then applying a regular waterproofing mix will suffice. Nevertheless, cracks that are larger than 1/8 inch should be cleaned and patched first before you apply the waterproofing compound.

Special epoxy and latex cement formulas are good for small patching or mortaring jobs. But if the job is big, it is best to mix your own mortar for patching holes and cracks before waterproofing the area. The common mortar mixture for filling up the holes and cracks is one-part cement and two-part sand. The water should only be enough to create thick slurry.

A putty knife or typical trowel will help you fill the holes and cracks with the mortar mixture. If the leakage is caused by a pressure from the water system, you may need to use a chipping chisel and hammer to create a dovetail groove.

Some close the cracks and holes by using a weep pipe through the wall to allow water trapped against the wall to escape. Now, you are ready to work on your waterproof cement. Spray the area you would like to make waterproof with water to moisten it, before you apply the waterproofing mix.
