Before the wet season reaches its peak, now is the best time for homeowners to waterproof their abodes. Begin by checking your homes for leaks and cracks—and patch these up before further damage which requires costly repairs.
Leaks and moisture accumulation in the home can cause damage to walls, ceilings, and floors and weaken and rot ceilings. Flooring may also peel off and bathrooms and toilets can have ugly, icky-looking watermarks. Worse, concrete walls in the house or the basement can have leaks that can cause more cracks.
The good news is, trusted industry leader Jardine Distribution Inc. makes waterproofing your homes easier with Super Thoroseal and Waterplug.
Super Thoroseal, a superior solution that offers long-term protection, is a cementitious type of waterproofing in non-toxic formula. It can be used in all concrete structures like fish ponds, firewalls, basements, toilets and bathrooms, roof decks, and even concrete water tanks. Super Thoroseal works by seeping into and bonding permanently with the concrete, becoming one with it and effectively sealing pores so that water and moisture are not absorbed. It can also be applied even on wet surfaces.
Complementing Super Thoroseal is Waterplug, a fast-setting hydraulic cement that has a mechanical characteristic similar to concrete. Waterplug is non-toxic and very strong. Once it is set and bonded with the concrete, it can withstand a force of up to 1,500 pounds-per-square-inch (PSI). In comparison, an open faucet has a force of about 40 PSI. Waterplug can also be used to seal cold joints and even anchor bolts of gates and other fixtures.
Optimum Flex is a flexible cement waterproofing slurry that can stand moderate movements and also adheres to wood, steel, or glass.
