Most home and business owners think about their foundations or basements when considering the need for professional waterproofing. However, there is a lesser-known issue that should be addressed to avoid costly repairs or replacements down the road.

The hardscaped spaces around a home or business are also important to maintain and the space in question will determine the process of being well protected in order to keep it enjoyable for residents and employees.

From stone pathways to pool decks, finding the right waterproofing company is key in ensuring the longevity of your outdoor space and protection for the rest of your property.

Texture Makes a World of Difference

The texture of outdoor applications plays a key role in keeping options affordable and making spaces enjoyable for homeowners. For example, when repairing and waterproofing a pool deck, one popular technique in known as knockdown texture.

Knockdown texture can also be used to give underwhelming basement walls a more interesting dimensional look following a repair that includes waterproofing the space so that water does not return or cause damage afterward.

A naturalistic texture like knockdown provides an effective means of waterproofing patios and pool decks while also providing traction to potentially reduce slipping. Textures can also be a means of controlling the temperature of hardscaped spaces outdoors.
