Generally speaking, the term “structural waterproofing” refers to the waterproofing of any structure; however, the property preservation industry applies this solely to the waterproofing of structures with earth retaining walls. Structures that may benefit from structural waterproofing include:
The above list solely refers to underground structures, which is why structural waterproofing is the chosen method of protection. For ground-level or above-ground properties, the method would be described as “damp proofing”.
Ultimately, if structural waterproofing is employed by someone without the necessary expertise, it’s likely to fail in the future. This is because structural waterproofing requires accurate installation by qualified and experienced individuals to be effective.
