How do you make concrete waterproof?
To make concrete waterproof, you can add admixtures and use types of cement to keep the moisture away from the finished building material as much as possible. Sealing the concrete can be done with membranes, bandages or injections. This will create a smooth, water resistant surface.

The right concrete sealer depends on the project and the requirements. Torch on membranes are regarded as reliable, while other specific challenges may require additional techniques. It’s recommended to consult an expert.

Yes – old concrete can be sealed, but it must be done so after ensuring contaminants, damage and problem areas, such as rust, mould, etc are all removed. The concrete can then be sealed to protect it from any damage arising from water.
