Water proofing and Thermal proofing

Water proofing and Thermal proofing

The waterproofing membrane is the most crucial component of the roofing system because it is responsible for keeping water out of the structure.

The construction of an impermeable barrier across the surfaces of foundations, roofs, walls, and other structural parts is known as waterproofing.

The impermeable barrier’s purpose is to prevent water penetration.

Water-resistant and waterproof coatings are applied to building surfaces.

In the waterproofing of buildings, liquid waterproofing membranes, cementitious materials, polyurethane liquid membranes, and bituminous materials are commonly used.

Basements, walls, bathrooms, kitchens, balconies, decks, terraces or roofs, green roofs, water tanks, and swimming pools all require waterproofing.

 

Thermal proofing:

People who live in hot climates prefer a cool interior atmosphere, whereas those who live in cold climates prefer a warmer interior atmosphere. However, we know that heat is transferred from hotter to colder places. Heat loss occurs as a result.

Thermal insulation is used in buildings to prevent heat loss and maintain the desired temperature inside.

The goal of thermal insulation is to reduce heat transfer from the outside to the inside of the building.
