When is the Best Time to Have Waterproofing Work Done?

Now that summer has kicked itself off into full swing, we can all begin to unwind and enjoy the beautiful weather to come. However, before we can afford to completely put our feet up, it’s important to consider the structural integrity of your home. It’s hard to be able to relax if you don’t know the true state of your home, but luckily you’ve got NV Waterproofing on your side to make sure that you can enjoy your summer to the fullest with peace of mind.

The summer is an ideal time to schedule waterproofing work for your home. NV Waterproofing offers free inspections in order to determine the best course of action for waterproofing work on your home. This way, you can find out what work your home needs without the stress of having to pay money simply to find out. The cold weather of the winter is a very difficult time for waterproofing work, so it is crucial to prepare for the harsh cold when the weather is still warm and dry. Foundation excavation and waterproofing other areas of a structure is difficult during wet and rainy conditions because the moisture can cause waterproofing coatings to not stick to walls. These coatings need to be a solvent based product.

The only aspect of waterproofing during the winter that won’t negatively impact the structural stability of your home or other structure is the practice of polyurethane crack filling. Polyurethane is one of the most commonly used methods of solvent based waterproofing, used to fill in cracks in a foundation or other area of a structure. Polyurethane becomes thicker in cold weather, which in turn causes it to take longer to cure, but the added thickness to the mixture is beneficial in keeping cracks successfully filled.
