Masonry Waterproofing

Masonry Waterproofing

SO, WHAT EXACTLY IS MASONRY WATERPROOFING?

DryPro offers masonry waterproofing treatment services to clients in the UK.  Our brick waterproofing is a preventative solution to stop water penetration in the structural brickwork.  England is known for its unpredictable weather therefore it is important for you to prepare by properly waterproofing your home’s masonry.

Unsealed brick absorbs water, which can weaken your home’s brickwork and mortar.  Our brick waterproofing and sealing services improve your home’s value by extending the life of your brickwork and enhancing its appearance.  Contact us today for an estimate and tips on proper care for your home.

WHAT DO YOU USE FOR THIS TREATMENT?

We use environmentally safe waterproofing solutions for all exterior vertical and horizontal masonry surfaces.

 

DOES IT MATTER IF THE MASONRY ON MY PROPERTY IS OLD?

No, our waterproofing treatments can be applied to new or old, above ground masonry surfaces.   The effectiveness of the reaction can be relative to the age of the substrate due the expulsion of excess alkali over time.  Spot tests will quickly indicate whether adequate reaction has occurred to produce repellence.

BENEFITS OF MASONRY WATERPROOFING

  • ENHANCED RESISTANCE TO EFFLORESCENCE

  • BARRIER PROTECTS STRUCTURE FROM WATER PENETRATION AND POLLUTANTS

  • RESISTANCE TO STAINING

  • DETERS DIRT BUILD-UP

  • RESISTANCE TO FREEZE-THAW DAMAGE

  • PRESERVES NATURAL BEAUTY OF THE MASONRY

  • LEAVES A EXTREMELY DRY, YET BREATHABLE SUBSTRATE

Efflorescence may be a sign that your masonry is absorbing water. Our masonry waterproofing services can help!

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT PROCESS?

The waterproofing materials we use are not filler products (pore blockers).  It is absorbed by the substrate and will not crack, blister, peel or alter appearance.  The treated surface will initially maintain a ‘dry’ look.  Other benefits include enhanced resistance to efflorescence, staining and freeze-thaw damage.  Our waterproofing treatment preserves the natural beauty while leaving an extremely dry, yet breathable substrate.

HOW CAN DRYPRO HELP YOU?

We offer a masonry waterproofing treatment for all above ground, level exterior masonry of a structure.  We use environmentally safe waterproofing solutions for all external masonry.

It is specifically designed for porous materials such as mortar, brick, split-face concrete block, stone tile, limestone, natural, and synthetic stone.  The treatment is a clear, odourless liquid that forms a hydrophobic barrier within the near surface, blocking out liquid water while remaining vapour permeable.  This barrier protects the structure from water penetration, pollutants that can harm the structure, freeze-thaw damage, deters dirt build up, deters staining and retards efflorescence
