Barrier Technologies has extensive knowledge and experience performing damp proofing and waterproofing services and installations, including sheet and fluid-applied waterproofing,
bentonite waterproofing, water repellent systems, and more according to IBC codes (IBC codes reference)
for construction projects in data centers, healthcare facilities, industrial buildings, educational buildings, and more.
Damp proofing and waterproofing concrete and masonry are essential and required by IBC codes for below-grade areas in construction for multiple reasons. While the primary reason for waterproofing is
to keep moisture out of the facility where it is applied, it also protects the building's concrete and embedded steel from structural damage and corrosion
(IBC codes reference)
caused by water infiltration, or deterioration caused by chemicals often found at building sites. Because concrete is a naturally porous material that can crack before or after it completely hardens,
it is vulnerable to moisture and vapor infiltration making waterproofing concrete and masonry an essential step for construction projects. Proper damp proofing and waterproofing performed by experts
like Barrier Technologies will ensure your structure's longevity and durability.
