The waterproofing of the garages

Garages are a vital part of any property, providing a safe and secure space for parking vehicles and storing various objects. However, these spaces are exposed to adverse weather conditions and can be prone to problems. From our position as a company, in Humilogic we want to talk about the importance of waterproofing in garages and how you can protect your parking space from water damage.

Do you want to know all the advantages you can have with a waterproofed garage? We will tell you below.

The waterproofing of garages

Garages are exposed to soil moisture, rain and condensation, which can lead to moisture problems and leaks. The constant presence of water can damage concrete structures, cause corrosion of metals and cause the proliferation of mold and fungi. In addition, humidity can affect vehicles and objects stored in the garage, causing irreparable damage. This process involves applying waterproofing materials on garage surfaces to create an effective water barrier. Waterproofing not only prevents water from entering the garage, but also strengthens the structures and prolongs their life.

Waterproofing process of a garage

The waterproofing process of a garage begins with the preparation of surfaces, which includes cleaning and sanitation of any dirt, grease or contaminants present. Then the waterproofing material is applied following the manufacturer’s instructions. It is important to ensure that the material is applied evenly and allowed to dry completely before use.

Types of waterproofing of garages

There are different methods and materials for waterproofing garages, each with its own advantages and applications. Some common options include:

  • Waterproofing coatings: these products are applied directly on garage surfaces to create a waterproof barrier. They can be liquid, in the form of paints or sealants, or prefabricated waterproofing membranes.
  • Sealants for joints and cracks: they are used to seal joints, cracks and fissures in the surfaces of the garage, avoiding the entry of water.
  • Drainage systems: they are important to remove rainwater and condensation from the garage. They may include gutters, drains and pumping systems.

How long can you make waterproofing a garage?

The duration of the waterproofing process of a garage can vary depending on several factors, such as the size of the garage, the type of surfaces to be waterproofed, the waterproofing method used and the environmental conditions.

For standard size garages, that is the most common we can see, and using conventional waterproofing methods, such as the use of waterproofing coatings or prefabricated membranes. However, it is important to note that factors such as cleaning and pre-preparation of surfaces, proper application of waterproofing materials and the necessary drying time may affect the duration of the process.
