Waterproofing is the formation of an impervious barrier over surfaces of foundations, roofs, walls, and other structural members. The function of the impermeable barrier is to prevent water penetrations. A waterproofing membrane is a thin layer of water-tight material that is laid over a surface. This layer is continuous and does not allow water to pass through it. For example, on a flat terrace, a waterproofing membrane could be laid above the structural slab and below the finish tiles. This will ensure that water does not seep into the structural slab. The building surfaces are made water-resistant and sometimes waterproof. The utilization of liquid waterproofing membrane, cementitious materials, polyurethane liquid membrane, and bituminous material are common in the waterproofing of buildings. Waterproofing is necessary for the basement, walls, bathrooms, kitchen, balconies, decks, terrace or roofs, green roofs, water tanks, and swimming pools, etc.
