    • Efflorescence cannot form in the absence of water.

    •  and must be able to adhere to them and create a bond and seal.

    Tips to Waterproofing & Seal Balconies

    The following tactics will help to ensure good balcony sealing and avoid water ingression.


    Complete all penetrating works PRIOR to applying the waterproofing.


    Choose a sealant or membrane material that suits your balcony structure, balustrade materials and roof materials.


    Ensure any penetrating material are applied with an additional sealant that will create an additional seal on these.


    Make sure you have a good drainage plan worked out with the balcony levels so not water pools are created.

    Repairing Roofs

    • Remedial waterproofing services repair existing & leaking membranes by over coating with a Liquid Applied Waterproofing system.

    • This can save a roof project thousands of dollars without the need to replace the roof or membrane.

    • Roof leaks often occur at points of weakness like roof penetrations, around roof mounted air-conditioning units, HVAC ducts or at skylights, joins/seams in sheet membranes.

    • Flat roofs and low slope roofs also have their own inherent problems typically caused by splits, cracks and tears at the waterproofing membrane seams.

    • Existing roofs may have low grade roof coatings such as mastic, tar or acrylic reflective roof coatings.

    • Using our Liquid Applied waterproofing system we can seal around penetrations, repair drains and gutters, recondition waterways and ponding areas, even seal around skylights and HVAC ducts.

    • Liquid applied roofing membranes can be installed without affecting or disrupting the workplace beneath.

    • Suited to almost all common types of industrial roofing; including corrugated fibro, aluminum, steel, concrete, timber, bitumen and can also be applied over failed sheet membrane systems.

    Findlay-Evans Waterproofing install solar reflective roofing membranes - save on energy costs.


    • These roof membranes exhibit extreme flexibility with advanced elongation – up to three times greater than many other membrane systems.

    • This enhanced flexibility allows the waterproofing membrane to move with the roof substrate normal climatic expansion and contraction.

    • Liquid applied waterproofing membranes have numerous properties crucial for roof projects: UV stable, with stand “ponding” water and molds to the shape of the roof and adheres to just about all roof substrates.
