What is the best time of year to waterproof your building?

Let’s say you’ve chosen the waterproofing solution that works best for you. What time of the year is best for waterproofing? There are a few factors that determine this and it can vary depending on where you are, but the best time to waterproof is generally in the winter. An advantage of waterproofing in the winter is that as the weather becomes cold, the concrete shrinks, causing any fractures in the concrete to expand. Because the cracks are filled to their full width, the resins used in crack sealing do not have to expand. Products like RX Proflex can be applied in extreme conditions (even at -18°C) which means they can even be applied during South African winters. Now that winter is here, it is the ideal time to get your property waterproofed.
