Give your tiles the durability of our waterproofing membrane system
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 tiles and membrane must be laid over a filler material that is sloped to ensure that water flows into the sumps and drains. Any water that remains as puddles over the tiles is likely to seep into the slab over time, so puddles are to be avoided at all costs.
United Trade Links brings over 25 years of experience in using a wide range of different waterproof membranes and sealants. We ensure the solution we create for your wet area waterproofing project is customized to you and your property. We provide two types of waterproofing membranes depending upon the need of the structure.
SHEET BASED WATERPROOFING MEMBRANES
As the name implies, these are membranes that arrive at the site in the form of rolls. These are then unfurled and laid on a firm surface. The most common type of sheet based membrane is a bituminous waterproofing membrane. This type of membrane is stuck to the substrate with a hot tar-based adhesive using blowtorches.
LIQUID APPLIED WATERPROOFING MEMBRANES
Liquid applied membranes come to the site in liquid form, which is then either sprayed or brush-applied on the surface. These are generally considered to be superior to sheet based membranes as they are joint-free.
