Course Overview                  

Anyone can buy waterproofing products, but results show us that not many applicators can install the products correctly. Incorrect application can lead to costly failures leaving applicators vulnerable to litigation claims. Statistically, product failure only attributes to approximately 5% of the failures we see in the industry, with design and application error 35% and 60% respectively (estimated percentages).

Adhering to the stipulations on the technical data sheets is critical but how do you interpret the key pieces of information? If you are using just one product how do you know it is fit-for-purpose? Are you limiting yourself by favouring one manufacturer? And, importantly, whose fault is it if the substrate is not installed correctly and you apply a membrane over it and there is a failure?
