Liquid Membrane services in Malta
Many people opt out of getting waterproofing membrane coating installed in their house’s exterior as they might think that this is an unnecessary step.
However, waterproofing is not only something that should be applied to old and leaky buildings — it is also an important preserving material that should be added to new buildings as well. This is due to the fact that with the help of a professionally applied waterproofing membrane, you will be able to preserve your building for a number of years.
With the help of this application, you will be able to prevent mould from forming in your home. This is due to the protection that this material offers to walls and roofs. Getting liquid membrane applied in your home means that you won’t have to worry about water leaking through any invisible cracks in your house’s roof or structure. Stones and home foundations always crack over time, meaning that if your home’s exterior is not adequately protected, the cracks can let water seep through — lending to concrete and steel damages.
This is especially true in a place like Malta, where the weather is extremely humid and can have adverse effects on any building’s structure. Moreover, with the help of waterproofing solutions, you will be able to protect your home’s interior temperature from the extreme weather conditions of both the summer and winter months. This will not only help you in being more comfortable in your own house, but it will also offer you the possibility of saving up on electricity bills. It will also present you with the prevention of dangerous health problems which are caused by mould, mildew and humidity.
A waterproofing membrane is a stellar insulator, as it will protect your home from any external elements as well. This is especially important for people who live in elevated places such as penthouses or apartments. These homes tend to feel the brunt of adverse weather conditions more harshly than townhouses or other floor-leveled buildings, as they are generally exposed from all sides to harsh elements and the sun’s rays.
You can get waterproofing membrane installed in:
● Basements lift pits
● Balconies terraces
● Roofs appoggi
All of these areas are exposed to water or rainwater, meaning that they can become easily damaged if left unprotected. If left to get damaged without any sort of protective coating, these structures can lead to costly expenses when it comes to reversing any of the damages
caused. Waterproofing is not a luxury — it is a much needed mandatory application here in Malta.Whether you are looking to prevent mould and mildew from growing in your home, or if you want to prevent your building’s exterior structure from becoming damaged — or even if
you want to save money on artificial cooling and heating systems, it is the ideal choice for you.
