This course will provide an overview of effective concrete waterproofing technologies and how they improve the durability and lifespan of structures. It also includes a discussion on water penetration, system selection, membrane protection, and various types of waterproofing materials including sheet-applied, fluid-applied, and cementitious waterproofing.
There is no such thing as a water-tight structure. Because water takes the path of least resistance, it will find even the smallest opening in the building envelope, allowing moisture to enter the wall system, no matter how many layers of protection are provided. Therefore, in addition to keeping water out with various weather resistive barriers (WRB), systems must be put in place to allow water to exit the envelope once it inevitably does get in.
