When working with masonry products like concrete and stucco it is important to finish the surfacing with a waterproofing membrane. Water proofing membranes are often applied to home foundations, but can be applied to many other surfaces like patios and balconies. A quality masonry waterproofing product will provide a slip-resistant, breathable finish, that is able to prevent water intrusion. Water intrusion can cause many problems for homeowners ranging from cosmetic to structural. Some of these potential issues include hairline cracks in stucco work, cracking or crumbling sidewalks, or lifting concrete pavers. The cost of these problems greatly exceeds the cost of applying a coating of waterproofing membrane over the finished masonry project.
