How to waterproof the floor?

Waterproofing the floor - the necessary work to help create a protective layer that prevents the penetration of moisture.

Materials and methods of waterproofing

The modern market of building materials offers a large selection of materials for effective waterproofing of the floor. These can be:

  • cast materials - polymeric solutions and mastics used to create a protective layer;
  • Impregnating materials penetrating deep into the porous structure of the floor, which create a protective layer
  • coating solutions based on cement, with the addition of aggregates and synthetic resins;
  • cement-based plaster, with the addition of special viscous, polymeric compositions;
  • Painting waterproofing - applying several layers of a special waterproof varnish on the work surface
  • waterproofing coating, which involves the use of materials based on bitumen, which are applied to the floor surface under the influence of high temperatures.

The appropriateness of using a particular material and type of waterproofing will depend on many factors - the material from which the floor is made, the height of the foundation, the number of floors, the presence or absence of contact with groundwater, etc.
