Water leaking through concrete can lead to structural failures, sinkholes, and other costly types of property damage. For property owners, it is important to be aware of potential problem areas in your facility, factory, or residence. For concrete restoration and waterproofing contractors, it is important for your business to know where to look for leak sealing opportunities.

So where are the areas that contractors and property owners need to be looking? Here we have broken it down into two broad categories: Commercial / Industrial / Municipal and then of course, Residential.

Commercial / Industrial / Municipal

  • Tanks: Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants, Aquariums
  • Infrastructure: Concrete Pipe, Manholes, Pipe Penetrations, Lift Stations, Pumps Stations, Utility Vaults
  • Industrial Plants: Machinery Pits, Containment Structures, Retaining Walls, Slab Joints
  • Tunnels: Tunnel Segments, Retaining Walls, Headwalls and Wing Walls
  • Commercial: Floors, Parking Structures, Elevator Pits, Basements
  • Specialized arenas for sealing leaks in Mines, Dams, and Power Plants.

Residential

  • Single Family: Basements, Foundation Walls, Swimming Pools, Fountains, Seawalls, Retaining Walls
