This is the major and the most significant reason for waterproofing. A commercial space or house, for example, is exposed to many elements; however, water is one of the most common elements that comes in direct contact with a building. Without adequate waterproofing, water can penetrate the foundation, walls, and the floors of a building. Denying water and humidity access to a building, there will be no water damage to the building.
When water or moisture gain access to a building through the walls or ceilings, it can encourage the development of mold and mildew. This in turn, creates spores that contaminate the air and cause health problems when inhaled, infiltrating the lungs. Waterproofing eliminates the possibility of mold and mildew growing; thus, enhances the health of the people occupying the property.
Waterproofing helps to save money by preventing damages to the building or items that water can damage. Consequently, you do not have to spend money on repairs or replacement of damaged structures, items or materials. In addition, when waterproofing the roof using the GACO waterproofing system, you gain UV and thermal protection. This helps to not overload the HVAC system.
