Well, for one thing, we live in the tropics where it rains a lot! Therefore, waterproofing can be rather crucial. Plus, waterproofing is a fundamental requirement for building and construction. It also ensures the longevity of your building by reducing the risk of severe structural damage.
The main reasons why it’s so important to waterproof your building are:
To protect the interior from water damage
The external walls of a building are essentially its skin. Just like human skin, these walls act as a barrier for the internal organs of the building and provide protection from external impacts and pressures.
Therefore, it’s important that we ensure that this protective layer is as effective as possible. We can’t control the weather or other environmental factors but we can work to control how they impact your building. By offering a quality waterproofing service, Opat can help protect your building from incurring detrimental water damage.
Once your building has incurred severe water damage, it can be very difficult and expensive to fix. It can also impose several safety risks including the stability of the building, the wiring throughout leading to a blond fuze, damaged electrical appliances or even electrical fires. Severe water damage can also lead to bacteria, germs and parasites.
To prevent the potential onset of health issues
When moisture finds its way into your ceiling and walls, it can provide a very welcome home for mould and mildew. These two elements just love dark, wet places and will not hesitate to invade your building, creating spores. These spores then get projected into the air and can travel straight into a person's lungs when they breathe.
This can cause health problems such as coughing and wheezing, blocked or runny nose, skin or eye irritation, throat irritation or worse. Ultimately, this may contribute to the deterioration of a person’s immune system, making them vulnerable to illness.
You can save money!
Waterproofing is kind of like insurance for your building. It’s an investment that will protect your building from serious damage which can incur some very serious costs. Emergency repairs are never cheap so why not do what you can to avoid them?
Prevention is always better than a cure! Instead of being blindsided by an emergency and having to cover eye-watering repair costs, we can give you and your wallet peace of mind, especially when it comes to the protection of your building and the safety of the people working or residing there.
Makes things a little more comfortable
There is nothing worse than dampness seeping into your building. It’s uncomfortable and can give off unpleasant odours and bacteria. A waterproof building will help promote a more comfortable and safe environment.
Well, naturally, any building elements that are in wet areas must be waterproof. That’s a given. However, sometimes it can be hard to know what signs to look out for that suggest you need to waterproof. The main warning signs that it’s time to looking into waterproofing include:
If you have noticed any of these things around your building or premise, it’s likely that it’s time to employ our services. We’ll get in quick smart and install the necessary protective coating to keep your building in it’s tippest and toppest shape!

It is crucial to find a partner who can offer quality products and services, especially when it comes to the protection and maintenance of your property.
