The Power of Waterproofing Paints

The goal of waterproofing any surface is to resist the ingress if water, especially where it will do long term damage to the structural integrity of a building. Waterproofing materials offer an investment that, if made early on, can save you a lot of money in the long run. Here are some things to which you should consider applying waterproofing paints to ensure their longevity.

The Roof

This will seal up any weak areas and give it added protection from wear and water damage. This should be the first place you begin your waterproofing efforts as it is the first place that will show signs of water trying to creep in. Check that all your shingles are intact before beginning your waterproofing efforts.

Windows and Doors

If you have wooden doors and window frames then you should consider applying a coat of waterproofing paint. This treatment will prevent them from swelling in humid water or if they should come into contact with water (like rain, for instance).

Gutters

This is definitely worth the time and effort even if the time spent and effort required are both rather high. While you are up there you should give them a good clean so you can see any corrosion or leaks. Once they are fixed and patched you should apply some waterproofing. Luckily this comes in the form of an easy to use waterproofing paint.

Walls

Treating your exterior and interior walls with waterproofing paints is a great way to protect the bulk of your home from water damage. It will prevent the growth of mildew or mould that could present health problems for everyone living in the house. If there is already a mould, algae or mildew growth problem be sure to treat it with a biocide before adding any layers of undercoating paint. You can also use a waterproofing paint with properties that will fix any underlying connection and protect against moisture.

You need to patch up any holes in the walls before waterproofing them, so be sure to seal any cracks and repair other damage with waterproofing materials.
