The heightened risk of flooding and water damage in all parts of the world today means that it is vital that your home has an effective waterproofing system. However, many residential homes are only damp-proof, not waterproof, which simply slows water penetration down. It does not prevent water seeping into the foundations, walls, or roof of your home. Damp-proofing is the cheaper option, but it is nowhere near as effective as a waterproofing membrane system such as Rhino Linings Tuff Stuff spray-on system. Homes which are vulnerable to flooding and leaks should definitely have a waterproofing membrane installed in areas of the home which are affected by water damage.
Unfortunately, many builders and home owners cut corners and costs when it comes to effective waterproofing. The initial cost of a good waterproofing membrane is well worth it, however, as it will save you from expensive water damage and leaks in the future. These can seriously damage the structural integrity of your home, and can even make it unsafe to live in.
Waterproofing membranes such as Tuff Stuff are unaffected by water, they can fill in cracks in the surface being waterproofed, and keep their flexibility over long periods of time. This means that the membrane will not crack and split due to structural movement.
