Cementitious Waterproofing Method

Cementitious waterproofing is another common method used to protect concrete and masonry structures from water penetration. Unlike the liquid applied membrane method, cementitious waterproofing utilizes a cement-based mixture to create a protective barrier against water. This method typically involves the application of a cementitious coating or a cementitious slurry to the surface, which effectively fills and seals the capillaries and pores in the concrete, thus preventing the passage of water.

Cementitious waterproofing has several advantages, including:
  • Durability: Once cured, the cementitious layer can provide long-lasting protection against water penetration and can withstand harsh environmental conditions.
  • Resistance to Hydrostatic Pressure: It can withstand a certain degree of hydrostatic pressure, making it suitable for applications where water pressure is a concern, such as basements and below-grade structures.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Cementitious waterproofing can be a cost-effective solution compared to other methods, especially for projects with specific budget constraints.
