Gold Coast Retaining Wall Waterproofing
Do you have water leaking through a retaining wall? Or want to ensure your wall doesn’t leak? Cambridge Waterproofing is your Gold Coast Retaining Wall Waterproofing specialist. In areas such as basements, carparks, underground storage areas and beneath retaining walls, you’ll often see water leaks coming through the wall downstairs. This can lead to dampness and mould, as well as compromising the foundations of the wall and surrounding buildings if left unchecked. When waterproofing a retaining wall, a great deal of care and attention is required, and best practice techniques must be used to avoid membrane failure. Once the wall is finished, it’s often back-filled and you can’t access the membrane to repair it. To make the best use of space in modern homes, some living areas are at basement level or below natural ground level. In this case, an effective, robust waterproof barrier between the external wall and the outside ground material is vital, as it will ensure no water leaks in to accumulate within the wall or inside the building. Concrete, brickwork and various types of natural stone are vulnerable to water penetration. Our Gold Coast Retaining Wall Waterproofing services can help with:
- Installing a waterproof membrane to ensure positive below ground tanking to the exterior wall at the time of construction
- Preventing concrete walls from cracking and becoming more porous
- Protect brick block walls from experiencing water seepage or pooling of water
- Provide a barrier to prevent soil beneath the foundations swelling and/or losing its strength
- Prevent water from leaking into your basement causing damage to interior walls and floor coverings, staining on walls and damage to soft furnishings
- Prevent lifting of rendered surfaces on building exteriors
Any type of water ingress to a retaining wall is an issue. It’s important to get waterproofing right on a retaining wall from the construction stage and ensure the membrane doesn’t get damaged during back-filling. This is because, when a water leak occurs in a retaining wall, the issue must be addressed from the inside, which is the negative side and this makes any repair or waterproofing all the more complex. It is vital that the right angle between the wall and the sub-straight, whether it’s a concrete footing or concrete slab, is adequately sealed, as this is where most leaks occur.
