Waterproof Walls

Whether you already have a water issue in your basement or want to make sure you avoid one, there are several different steps you or a professional can take to handle the issue:

  • Start by stopping any existing seepage or leaks
  • Repair visible cracks or holes
  • Pack any floor joints that are leaking
  • Once the necessary repairs are finished, avoid future issues by waterproofing the basement's walls

What Can Waterproof Walls Do for Your Home?

Waterproof walls are 100% waterproof. Because this type of wall won't absorb any water, you won't have to worry about rotting, swelling or discoloration. Waterproof walls are fiberglass free. Since fiberglass can cause irritation or more serious health issues, not having this material in your home will give you peace of mind. There is no way for bacteria, mildew or mold to grow on waterproof walls. The hygienic nature of these walls will prevent your home from experiencing what's known as "sick building syndrome."

What are the Main Features of Waterproof Walls?

Waterproof walls are chemically inert. These walls will not be impacted by petroleum products, chemical solvents or any type of acid. The color used on waterproof walls goes all the way through them. Because the quality of the color will hide any scratches, your walls will continue to look great for longer. The matte texture of waterproof walls makes them very attractive. Regardless of your home's interior style, you'll be able to take advantage of all the benefits of waterproof walls without settling for a less attractive look in your home.

Waterproof walls are created from fully recycled resins. Knowing this will allow you to enjoy your new walls without worrying that you're taking a toll on the environment. This type of wall is easy to install. Whether you hire a professional or tackle the installation as a DIY project, you'll be able to have your new walls in place in no time. Waterproof walls are most commonly used in bathrooms, laundry rooms, basements and utility rooms. Because these walls work so well, they are also used in commercial settings like hotel bathrooms and commercial kitchens.

How are Waterproof Walls Installed and Maintained?

Waterproof walls are available in different colors. Popular options include light gray, almond and bright white. Waterproof walls require very little maintenance. The standard installation process for waterproof walls only has a few steps. The waterproof sheets should be installed over walls that are smooth and unfinished. This application can be done with a notched trowel and a latex adhesive that's non-flammable and moisture curing.

In the event the installation is being done on a non-porous surface, a special adhesive can be used to ensure the application holds. Once the adhesive is applied, it will fully dry within three days.  If you do need to clean your walls, all you'll need to use is a rag and a standard home cleaning product.
