Waterproofing is an essential element not to be overlooked. The lack of, or poorly installed, waterproofing “is the single biggest contributor to problems and premature failing in building structures, plaster and paint systems,” explains Gary Pienaar, owner of Bone Dry Waterproofing.

With offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg, Bone Dry Waterproofing is a pioneer in the supply and installation of waterproofing solutions for the local market. They advocate the importance of waterproofing to protect buildings against water infiltration, keep buildings watertight and assist with the longevity of paint systems.

Local conditions

  • South Africa has diverse weather patterns, with extremely high ultraviolet (UV) levels resulting in an increased demand for waterproofing solutions that offer long-term performance.
  • Local options offer different performances, guarantees and lifespans, depending on the specific needs and requirements of each project and the clients’ budgets.
  • These systems include torch-on bitumen-, acrylic- and polyurethane-based waterproofing, as well as cementitious waterproofing.

“There is a big upswing in popularity with the single-ply waterproofing membranes such as PVC, TPO and EPDM due to their superior performance,” says Pienaar.

PVC waterproofing systems

Made from a single layer of synthetic polymer material, these waterproof membranes are highly resistant to water and UV radiation, with a long lifespan. PVC waterproofing systems are a popular choice due to their durability, ease of installation, waterproofing performance and environmental friendliness.

Structural integrity

Waterproofing is a crucial step in maintaining the structural integrity of a building and preventing damage caused by water infiltration. “Investing in a top-quality waterproofing system pays off in the long run by protecting your property, preventing costly repairs and increasing its value,” concludes Pienaar.

Issue: Preventing damage to a building’s structure, plaster and paint systems.
Solution: Waterproofing ensures the longevity and durability of a structure against water infiltration.
