Roofing Waterproofing Services 

Water leaks can be very difficult to find a sthey track quite a distance from the point of origin.

Waterproofing Standards in Australia

Waterproofing defects and failures, including internal water damage and water entering from the exterior of a building, are the top source of building defects facing Australia's construction landscape today.


Defects from ineffective waterproofing represent a huge cost to builders and business.


And let's not forget the home owners who often face disastrous damage/s brought on by water leaks, then may have to endure lengthy legal battles for rectification costs or face these costs themselves.


Construction and waterproofing contractors not only will need to manage the frustration of needing to manage water leaks issues long after construction is complete, but also are losing a large chunk of their profit margins to waterproofing rectification and remedial services.
