Retaining Wall Waterproofing Membrane

Retaining walls are an important part of any landscape or garden design. They can also be used in homes or commercial structures that abut hills or rises in the landscape. One of the most common types of retaining walls is a basement wall. While regions with high water tables like Florida are less likely to have basements the rest of the US frequently incorporates basements in standard building designs. In general, retaining walls help to keep soil and other materials in place, as well as provide a strong barrier to the elements.

However, if the wall is not properly waterproofed, it can become damaged over time due to water infiltration. Waterproofing your retaining wall is essential to ensure its longevity and protect it from the elements. The first step in waterproofing a retaining wall is to inspect the wall for any signs of damage or weakness. Check for cracks, holes, or other signs of deterioration. If any of these are found, they should be filed with a suitable material and sealed. This should be done before any waterproofing is attempted.

Once the wall is in good condition, a waterproofing membrane should be applied. This can be done with either a liquid or sheet membrane, depending on the type of wall and its construction. If the wall is made of brick, stone, or concrete, a liquid membrane such as Semco’s Liquid Membrane, is usually best. This is applied in multiple coats, with each layer allowed to dry before the next one is applied.

Finally, itis important to make sure the wall is properly maintained. This includes checking for any signs of damage or deterioration and addressing them quickly. Itis also important to regularly inspect the wall for any signs of water infiltration. If any are found, they should be addressed immediately to prevent further damage. Waterproofing a retaining wall is essential to protect it from the elements and ensure its longevity. It is important to inspect the wall for any signs of damage before waterproofing and to use a suitable waterproofing membrane and sealant. Regular maintenance and inspections are also necessary to ensure that the wall remains waterproof and in good condition.

The Semco Liquid Membrane system is a 2 or 3 coat water based product that can also be used as an integrally colored finish coating in basement walls and other exposed areas. Due to ts incredible bond strength and elasticity it is ideally suited to retaining wall waterproofing. It also has strong abrasion resistance so it can resist the impact of backfilling soil and gravel against a retaining wall.
