Waterproofing your Sydney strata is an essential aspect of safe strata management.

A building that is vulnerable to water damage and flooding is never good news. It can do a lot of damage to your property, belongings, business and people.

Ensuring your strata building has all the preventative measures will give you and the residents peace of mind.

There are multiple methods available for commercial waterproofing such as sheet and torch on membrane and liquid membrane.

There are also other services to supplement safety like sealing, insulation and epoxy coatings.

Whether it is a new building or an older one that’s up for an upgrade or repair job, then making sure that it is properly and professionally sealed is crucial.

Torch on membrane

One of the most reliable methods of waterproofing is torch on membrane. It is a welding process that bonds the sheet to the building, creating one of the best waterproofing applications possible.

Because of the polymer mixture, sheet and torch on membrane has superior performance in cold weather and has high tensile strength. This makes it extremely effective for balconies and rooftops.

It is important however, that torch on membrane is executed by professionals. Otherwise, it will not be effective and your building could still incur damage.

Liquid membranes

This type of membrane is a flexible coating that is highly resilient and preferred for smaller detailed areas.

This is why many property owners opt for balcony membrane waterproofing. Once applied, it is UV resistant and breathable.

Watertight seals ensure that no matter what weather systems come roaring through, your balconies and buildings are safe.

Importance of strata waterproofing

Strata buildings face many issues. And at Titan Waterproofing, we are one of the few waterproofing companies in Sydney that tailor our services after an analysis of the site.

Some of the main issues found in strata and commercial buildings are worn out waterproofing, damaged joints or inaccurate applications.

What makes it worse is that once a leak occurs, it can be difficult to pinpoint where the source is.

In strata schemes, a leak or water damage can spread and cause irrevocable repercussions. Because it is a shared building, it is detrimental and dangerous to allow water problems to occur.

Ensuring main water access points such as roofs and balconies are especially secure is necessary for overall safety.

Also, the financial impact of water damage can be very high. The best way to overcome potential problems is to manage the risk to prevent it from even occurring in the first place.
