Service Details



The scope of work for waterproofing before painting involves preparing surfaces to protect against moisture intrusion. Here's what it typically includes:


1. *Surface Inspection:* Evaluate the condition of the surfaces to identify areas prone to water damage or leaks.


2. *Cleaning and Surface Preparation:* Clean the surfaces to remove dirt, dust, and contaminants. Repair any cracks, holes, or damaged areas.


3. *Priming:* Apply a waterproofing primer or sealer to create a moisture-resistant barrier. This primer also helps the paint adhere better.


4. *Caulking and Sealant Application:* Seal gaps, seams, and joints with appropriate waterproof caulking or sealant.


5. *Waterproof Membrane Installation:* In some cases, a waterproof membrane may be applied to surfaces that are particularly vulnerable to water infiltration.


6. *Waterproof Paint or Coating Application:* Apply a waterproof paint or coating to surfaces. This forms an additional layer of protection against water.


7. *Multiple Coats:* Depending on the product used and the level of protection required, multiple coats may be necessary.


8. *Drying Time:* Allow sufficient time for drying and curing between coats.


9. *Cleanup:* Properly dispose of waste materials and ensure the work area is clean.


10. *Final Inspection:* Confirm that the waterproofing measures are effectively in place, and the surface is ready for painting.


Waterproofing before painting is essential to prevent water damage and extend the life of the paint job, especially in areas exposed to moisture or wet conditions. The specific scope can vary based on the surfaces involved and the extent of waterproofing required.
