When you decide to waterproof concrete, masonry, and other cement-based materials on your residence or commercial property, you extend the life and durability of its structure. The protection of concrete from water is a big step towards better longevity. In some parts of the country, it's a legal requirement to make your building waterproof. Waterproofing is an integral part of building maintenance and can limit the amount of home repair you may need in the future.
Waterproofing can help your concrete surfaces last longer because water breaks down the particles in concrete—which not only changes its appearance for the worse, but also makes it weaker. The concrete becomes eroded and in extreme cases will quickly be destroyed. If you notice damage to the concrete surface, it's almost certain that the wall adjacent to or underneath the concrete is damaged as well. Waterproofing also protects the concrete from rust and decay that could ultimately destroy the foundation of the structure.
