What is a waterproofing system?

Waterproofing is the process of making an object or structure waterproof or water-resistant, so that it remains relatively unaffected by water or resisting the ingress of water under specified conditions.

It can be finished in a range of options, including the classic knockdown texture, customized hand trolled Stone Surface, decorative tile pattern, or a natural slate or tile of your choice.

Metal lath and fiberglass act as anti-fracture membranes, preventing cracking.
