Garage Waterproofing Melbourne

Recently we’ve started to experience increased demand on Leaking Garage Waterproofing Services. Mostly, the Leaking Garage problem appears in Brick Garage Buildings.

Why the Leaking Garage problem exists?

 

Builders doesn’t pay much attention to the Garage Waterproofing in the building process – there is a perception that Garage is not a residential space, so the Garage Waterproofing, both external and internal, can be ignored.

 

Garage Waterproofing Melbourne Before

The practice shows the fallacy of such approach – beside of using a Garage as a Parking Spot for the car, Garage is also used as a workshop, gym and, of course, a storeroom. How disheartening is to observe the valued family items – photos, books etc., becoming a wet, plain junk because of the water getting through from the outside. And the reason for that – a couple of hundreds of $, that were “saved” during the building process by skipping the Garage Waterproofing.

 

There are two ways for water to get into the Garage:

 

  • The moisture from the ground travels up through the wall by capillary action.

 

  • The water is getting through the brickwork.

Getting the tools ready for the Garage Waterproofing!

 

Very common is the situation when the external ground level is higher than a Garage Floor – the difference can be from 100mm to 1500mm, if the house is situated in the hills.

How to treat Rising Damp – we’ve covered in other articles and on the Rising Damp Service Page.

On this page I’d like to describe the solution for the situation, when the external ground level is higher than a Garage Floor:

The best way to do the Leaking Garage Waterproofing is to do the External Waterproofing of the Garage – this process is also described in details on External Waterproofing Page.

Unfortunately, in some cases it is not possible to do the External Garage Waterproofing:

  • It can be located on the Neighboring area which we can’t access.
  • There can be a concrete slab and it’d be too expensive to restore it after the job is done.
  • There can be a professionally-made Landscaping, big trees or rocky ground.

In any of the mentioned above situations the only solution left is to perform the Internal Garage Waterproofing – which is completely different from applying the waterproofing paints from the Bunnings (applying the waterproofing paint doesn’t stop the water).

We are doing the real Internal Waterproofing with guaranteed result:

1. First of all we do the Polyurethane Crack Injection – installing the Mechanical Injection Packers into the problem area and applying the High Pressure Crack Injection using the German Webac Machinery. As the product contacts with moisture, it reacts chemically and expanding, filling every crack of cavity presented. After such procedure there is literally no way for water to get through.

  1. On the next day we remove the Crack Injection Packers and patching the holes with Hydro-Cement.

3. As the most problematic area is always the Wall Floor Joint – 90% of Garage Leaks are coming from Wall Floor Joint, we create an additional barrier of 45* Angle Fillet at internal corners between horizontal and vertical surface using Sika Plug – Fast Setting Water Plug.

4. To finish with, we supply and apply two layers of Negative Pressure Waterproofing Membrane to the floor and walls.

This is the Triple Guard against water – supplementing each other and guaranteeing the best Waterproofing Results there can be!

 

That’s how AWC Group solves the Leaking Garage problem.
