The ruthless desert condition in the Middle East, along with high temperature and humidity encountered in the coastal regions entail special precautionary measures to be taken in placing high-quality concrete. The excessive heat and dry winds cause plastic shrinkage and cracking unless mixes are carefully designed and proper curative techniques are adopted. The high concentrations of salt present in the water, ground and atmosphere cause chemical reactions to take place in the concrete, which rapidly leads to its decomposition.
Basement waterproofing is done to insulate the basement against all forms of moisture seepage contributing to its durability. This waterproofing helps the basement surface in surviving foundation distress and landscaping challenges such as infusion of pressurized gases among sunken, soil zones. Basement membranes have been regarded as an effectual solution for every basement-waterproofing requirement. Basement membranes have a long life cycle and have no known reactions with moisture. It offers years of undemanding waterproofing with negligible need for refurbishing or any kind of repair.
