Rubberized asphalt: Rubberized asphalt is a waterproofing membrane that is made from asphalt and rubber. It is flexible and can expand and contract with temperature changes, making it well suited for cold climates.
Polyurethane and polyurea: These materials are applied as a liquid and then cure to form a waterproof barrier. They are flexible and can withstand freeze-thaw cycles, making them suitable for cold climates.
Bituminous waterproofing: Bituminous waterproofing is a type of waterproofing membrane that is made from asphalt or tar. It is resistant to freezing temperatures, and is commonly used in cold climates.
Cementitious waterproofing: Cement-based waterproofing materials are used to make concrete and masonry surfaces waterproof. They are resistant to freeze-thaw cycles and can be used in cold climates.
Liquid applied membrane: These are liquid waterproofing products that are applied as a liquid and then cured to form a waterproof barrier. They can be used on various surfaces such as concrete, wood, metal, etc. and can withstand cold temperatures.
Insulation: Insulation is not a waterproofing material per se, however, it plays a vital role in preventing water from penetrating the building’s structure. Insulation is used to prevent heat loss and keep the building warm and dry, which in turn helps to prevent the formation of ice dams and keep water from penetrating the building’s structure.
