Spray Applied Waterproofing for Podia, Green Roofs & Balconies

Roofs, podia & balconies place very high demands on the waterproofing material used, particularly in areas where there are residential buildings, underlying offices, or production plants. But we face several pitfalls when it comes to designing a waterproofing system for podium decks, buried roofs, balconies and terraces. When failures occur, it is mainly due to design issues, selection of right thickness for right structural movement and often the wrong selection of products for given type of structure like composite deck, Pre-cast, Long span slab etc., Inadequate waterproofing system affects a structure’s functionality, its maintenance and whole life cycle costs, with far reaching implications for building insurance.

Selection of the right waterproofing product, therefore, becomes pivotal. A waterproofing membrane could be laid above the structural slab and below the finished floor surfaces. Ideally, it should be strong, flexible, percentage of recovery, tear-resistant and elastic so that it can stretch to cover cracks during the structural movement.

Considerations for the appropriate waterproofing membrane include:

  • Roof construction material
  • Number of joints
  • Movement of deflection under loading
  • Build up on top of the deck
  • Use of space below
  • Tightness of site space
