Waterproofing in Goa

Waterproofing is the technical skill that needs years of expertise in making concrete & civil structures in Goa resistant to the continuous onslaught of water. Every civil construction structure in Goa, whether it is new or old has to have effective protection from the Goan Monsoon rainfalls and other sources of water too.
In simple words, “Waterproofing” means making the structure resistant to the ingress (forceful entry) of water. Waterproofing services also include the specialized work of “damp-proofing” which provides protection to the built structure from natural humidity and dampness.

In layman’s language, Waterproofing always is spoken with reference to buildings, basements, bathroom areas, swimming pools, flat & sloping terraces and external surfaces (walls) of structures.

BUILDING CONSTRUCTION WATERPROOFING

In Civil Construction the external structure of a building is waterproofed with the use of membranes and coatings to protect the RCC structures giving it a lifelong structural integrity. In building construction, waterproofing is an essential aspect of constructing a protective envelope to cover the building. The roof covering materials, siding, foundations and all of the various areas where water can penetrate need to be water-resistant and sometimes waterproof. Roofing materials are generally designed to be water-resistant.

SLOPING ROOFS IN GOA

To discourage water retention, building of flat terrace roofs are discouraged in Goa due to the vigorous and long rainfall season every year from June to September. Individual bungalows and even group housing colonies have sloping terrace roofs to assist the rainwater to disperse easily towards the ground.
Even sloping terraces and sloping roofs in Goa have to be waterproofed from the continuous assault of Monsoon rains. Many types of waterproof membrane systems are accessible, including felt paper or tar paper with asphalt or tar to make a built-up roof, other bituminous waterproofing, EPDM rubber, hypalon, polyvinyl chloride, liquid roofing, and many more.

WALLS FACING THE ONSLAUGHT OF SOUTH WEST MONSOONS IN GOA.

The monsoons of Goa are also called the “South – West” Monsoons as that is their direction of arrival. Mostly the rains in Goa are in the direction of South West or facing the Seaside. This means that some walls of every building structure are battered directly and have a more direct impact of the rains than the other walls. Masonry walls are built at the time of construction with a damp-proof course to avoid rising dampness and the concrete in new foundations needs to be damp-proofed or waterproofed with a liquid coating, basement waterproofing membrane (even under the concrete slab floor where polyethylene sheeting is commonly used), or an additive to the concrete.

MODERN TECHNOLOGIES USED BY A.A.Chowhan GROUP FOR WATERPROOFING IN GOA

Within the Waterproofing Industry in India, there have been great technological advances in waterproofing materials, including integral waterproofing systems as well as more advanced membrane materials. Integral systems such as hycrete work within the matrix of a new concrete structure have been introduced giving the concrete itself a waterproof quality.
