The advantages of using RX Wetsuit, a spray-applied waterproofing system


Waterproofing is a crucial element in the construction and maintenance of all types of buildings, whether residential, commercial, or industrial. Its importance cannot be overstated, as it serves as the primary defence against the relentless forces of nature that can wreak havoc on structures. From the ever-present threat of rain and moisture infiltration to the potential damage caused by flooding, leaks, and the long-term effects of water exposure, waterproofing plays a pivotal role in ensuring the durability, structural integrity, and longevity of buildings. Without effective waterproofing, structures are vulnerable to various issues, including mould growth, structural damage, reduced energy efficiency, and compromised indoor air quality.
