Cementitious Waterproofing Singapore
Cementitious waterproofing in Singapore is one of the most efficient and reliable ways to waterproof your property.
The cementitious waterproofing uses cement. Thus, it retains all the benefits associated with concrete. This method involves the application of a concrete based solution. Hence, it is the same material used during the construction phase of new property development.
Many builders will choose to mix a cementitious formula with an acrylic additive first. Next, they brush it onto buildings before tilling or plastering. As cement is highly impermeable by nature, cementitious waterproofing presents itself as a solid contender in the construction business. Moreover, it won’t wear easily under Singapore’s natural humidity in the long term.
Advantages of using Cementitious Waterproofing Treatments
This cementitious treatment provides great protection to HDBs, condos and commercial properties, using a nonporous layer of hard cement that will repel water and prevent leakages. There are several advantages to using cementitious treatments:
- The formulas are affordable,
- Can be applied in damp or humid rooms such as bathrooms,
- Puncture proof due to the hardwearing nature of cement,
- Can be used seamlessly to new builds.
One of the main disadvantages of using cementitious waterproofing is the inability to hold up cracks. Imagine there are leaks from the wall. Cementitious method cannot hold up in the face of any cracks and can become severely damaged if leakage does appear. As such, when applying cementitious waterproofing formulas, contractors must be meticulous and precise.
