Waterproofing

Andersal waterproofed the Conservatorium of Music during heritage restoration with 12,000 square metres of membrane.

There is a statistic often quoted in the building industry: waterproofing makes up 1.8% of the total construction cost, but accounts for 83% of building defect complaints. If a structure isn’t adequately waterproofed during its construction, Anderson can protect it against future degradation by applying structural waterproof membrane systems. If you’re in the process of building a new structure, Andersal can ensure that the structure is waterproof from the get-go to eliminate the need for constant maintenance during the structure’s lifetime.

The team at Andersal work under a philosophy of designing and implementing long-term solutions that require minimal maintenance in the structure’s future. Our team will provide you with long-lasting, effective and economical concrete waterproofing solutions to suit your needs, making use of the highest-quality technologies and equipment to protect your structure against failure.

Key areas of application include:

  • Balconies
  • Terraces
  • Roof tops
  • Planter boxes
  • Walkways
  • Car parks
  • Retention walls and basement walls
  • Any other concrete area where water flowing through cracks can cause leaching and corrosion.

Andersal are not however resourced for internal waterproofing or minor repairs to private residences.
