Su Yalıtımı | Waterproofing

Waterproofing saves time and money. So if you want to make sure your surface has stood the test of time, look to professional waterproofing services. This will ensure that the surface will never be damaged by water and that the seal will continue.

What is Waterproofing

Waterproofing describes an object that is waterproof or water resistant, relatively unaffected by water, or resists the ingress of water under specified conditions. A method by which a product is made resistant to water damage. It is a barrier formation designed to prevent water from entering or escaping into various parts of building structures.

Water penetrating into the buildings causes corrosion of the iron in the bearing parts of the buildings and a decrease in their carrying capacity. Water causes the concrete to rot and cracking. In addition to ensuring the safety of the building, the waterproofing application prevents the formation of bacteria and mold, and prevents the dripping of water from the roofs or ceilings, thus providing healthy and comfortable environments.

In order for the buildings to be long-lived and to provide a healthy, comfortable and reliable area, they must be properly protected against internal and external factors. The most effective way to be protected from these internal and external factors is waterproofing. The main elements of waterproofing, which is a specialty, are the right detail, qualified materials, and healthy application.

Waterproofing in buildings is done in order to prevent water from entering the building envelope and damaging the building elements and therefore the structure, regardless of the severity, condition and where it comes from. The presence of water in liquid or gaseous form in structures is the most important cause of wear and harmful effects.

In buildings with exterior sheathing, waterproofing should be done as well as all exterior thermal insulation. For waterproofing, waterproofing paints that can resist the severity of water should be applied on exterior facades. It has been observed that thermal insulation does not provide 100% efficiency in buildings without waterproofing. For this reason, it is useful to think about the benefits of waterproofing before applying thermal insulation. Waterproofing for your buildings extends the life of your building.

How to Make Water Insulation

It is done in the “best fit” way to the current situation. The reason for this answer is that physical conditions that are not dependent on technology alone do not always provide 100% successful waterproofing. For example ; presence of side buildings in old buildings, later interventions, ground structure of the region, etc. For reasons, foundation insulation may not be healthy. The place where the application will be made should be seen in person and a solution should be produced. In order to solve the problems of each structure, the structure should be examined with the title of “doctor”. Sample problems and relevance in solutions;

Basically the water leakage problem: If it is an old building, it is difficult to drain around it. Research should be multidimensional. However, internal control measures can be taken.

Water leakage problem of the water tank: According to the reinforced concrete conditions of the tank, membrane or sliding-based insulation can be made.

Terrace water leakage problem: If it is economically and physically possible to completely disassemble and rebuild the terrace under current conditions, other solutions are produced.

Waterproofing on Reinforced Concrete Surfaces

It is the process of protecting the floor slab concrete against water. Many different processes can be done to make waterproofing. Among these processes, waterproof insulation coatings are preferred. For example; Membrane applications, which means cover, are the most preferred waterproofing materials that come to mind in this regard. These applications, which seem to be a cheap system, are applications made by using PVC membrane, glass fiber membrane, polyester felt, carrier membrane. However, it has been observed that these applications are generally not very healthy due to joints and application errors.

The best method for waterproofing is sliding-based waterproofing materials. These materials are isolation insulation materials applied by brush or roller. Waterproofing materials applied as sliding form a single piece on the reinforced concrete surface without forming joints and cover the entire concrete surface. At the same time, it fixes it into the ground and provides better adhesion.

In sliding-based waterproofing systems, the entire reinforced concrete surface is completely covered, the drain edges are insulated in detail, and the waterproofing process is terminated by turning to the bottom of the marble on the insulation parapet. In case of clogged drains, a pooling system must be installed in waterproofing applications so that the accumulated water does not exceed the parapets or door sills and enter the apartment.

Application Areas

A healthy waterproofing should cover all structural elements of the building.

  • walls in contact with the ground,
  • Foundations and table concretes resting on the ground,
  • ampatments,
  • flooded jeans,
  • exterior walls,
  • window edges,
  • terraces and balconies,
  • roofs,
  • hidden streams,
  • Wet areas such as bathrooms, WCs,
  • pools,
  • water tanks,
  • It is made to parts of the structures such as cold expansion joints (dilations).

In addition, an effective waterproofing is applied in landscape areas (in areas where flowers, trees, plants will be planted) in order to prevent plant roots from damaging the floor concrete. Waterproofing is also used in areas such as tunnels, water channels, hidden streams, chimney edges, parapets, balcony overhangs.

Why Should You Have Waterproofing?

One of the biggest problems in waterproofing, usually seen in buildings with floors below the ground level, is moisture and water intake problems. The wall, which is exposed to moisture, becomes damp in time and its paint swells and its plasters fall off. The problems in the basement floors of the interior walls of the building, which are under the ground, cause serious damage to the building carrier, columns and curtains. Damaged walls should be excavated from the exterior, if possible, and waterproofing should be applied to the building curtain walls from the positive side and closed again. In cases where exterior excavation cannot be done, negative waterproofing must be done inside the building.

Water leaks occur on the floors and walls due to the accumulation of water due to the contact of rain water on the balconies and terraces or the lack of sufficient slope, the necessary waterproofing application is not made, the detail applications are not fully performed. Since the problematic areas on the ground are very difficult to be repaired and resolved locally, all applications must be done by careful and professional teams from the very beginning.

In terrace waterproofing applications, waterproofing is applied with bitumen-based, cement, elastomeric resin, polyurethane-based and transparent waterproofing products. Since sliding-based waterproofing products are used, there is no additional joint in the application and waterproofing is applied in one piece on the floor. In addition, the waterproofing problem is eliminated by applying polyurethane-based injection waterproofing to prevent water leaks from cracks in the terrace ceilings.

You can do the necessary maintenance and repair for your buildings by preventing damages that may occur in wet areas such as foundations, basements and curtain walls, terraces, balconies and bathrooms.

Customer satisfaction is ensured with the waterproofing services provided by the experienced personnel using the highest quality materials. In addition to the negative insulation in the elevator bucket and basement floors, the problems that occur in the pool and water tanks are eliminated in a short time. Thanks to our company, which helps you at a very affordable cost, you can permanently get rid of problems such as moisture, mold, dampness, cracks and achieve a healthier environment.
