Use this 3 part SimpleSpecs™ master specification to specify hot fluid-applied waterproofing used on below-grade walls and decks.
The liquid applied bituminous-based waterproofing form a seamless barrier against water penetration on concrete, masonry, or plywood substrates.
The waterproofing cannot be left exposed and should be protected from the weather.
Some systems are available for use on vegetated roofs that incorporate root barriers, drainage media, and special growing media. Consult with a manufacturer of these products to determine specific requirements.
This waterproofing requires a protection course to prevent damage during backfilling and placement of overlying construction. A drainage course applied over the waterproofing reduces hydrostatic pressure, thereby reducing the possibility of leaks. Some drainage boards can also act as a protection course.
