Horizontal Waterproofing

When it comes to horizontal areas on a building, they can be the most crucial areas to keeping a building watertight. Horizontal areas are very susceptible to water and freeze-thaw damage. Draining water from the surface is a challenge, as slope is minimal or sometimes non-existent. The transition between the vertical wall and the horizontal waterproofing should be carefully designed and built to avoid the water infiltration. Horizontal surfaces involve a variety of sizes, shapes and surfaces, resulting in confusion about the best way to waterproof them. Black Roofing & Waterproofing is well versed in finding solutions, installing and maintaining these key areas.
