Many house and buildings built nowadays are constructed mainly out of concrete, from the roof to the foundations and walls. However, most people sill mistakenly believe that concrete is completely solid that will allow nothing through. Concrete is actually very porous, which means that water can seep through very easily. Concrete waterproofing is therefore very important, as moisture can severely damage the concrete parts of your home and cause major mould and damp problems.

One of the most important parts of the home to waterproof is the roof. If your roof is made of concrete, such as tile or shingle, it would be a very good idea to invest in a concrete waterproofing system. Without concrete waterproofing for your roof, water will be free to seep through the concrete and dangerously weaken your home’s structural supports. Water will enter the concrete columns, beams, and tiles, causing them to weaken and crack. Your home may also develop damp, mould, and mildew problems as the water seeps through. Concrete waterproofing will prevent all these costly and time-consuming problems from affecting your roof.

If you are building your own home, make sure that your roof and other concrete areas such as the deck, driveway, and pathways are also waterproofed with a concrete waterproofing product. This will save you from having to deal with the damage and problems in the future, and make sure that your home stays strong for a long time. It is important to make sure that your contractor understands that you want concrete waterproofing, not damp proofing. Damp proofing is the cheaper, easier option, and many people believe they are the same thing. However, concrete waterproofing is far more effective, and can seal cracks and gaps in the concrete as well as protecting it against water seepage.

To fully protect your concrete roof against water damage and dampness, you need to invest in a concrete waterproofing system such as Rhino Linings Tuff Stuff. This spray-on waterproofing product seals the tiny holes in the concrete to prevent water vapour and water molecules from seeping through into your roof. Tuff Stuff will also repair any small cracks and crevices in your roof stop water entering, and will prevent cracks appearing in the future. Spending a little extra time and money now will prove very beneficial in the long run.

Rhino Linings Tuff Stuff is a revolutionary spray-on concrete waterproofing product that will permanently protect your concrete roof from water-related damage. Tuff Stuff possesses unique features that make it the best concrete waterproofing product available, such as a seamless finish, which means that Tuff Stuff avoids the weaknesses associated with joined membrane products.
