Incompatible tie-ins may cause leaks

The first step to ensuring a successful blindside waterproofing project is to include all trades in pre-installation meetings. We discussed this in our previous blog

A second step – sequencing waterproofing transitions at grade with the rest of the building envelope – is just as important. Dissimilar materials may create incompatible tie-ins and cause the waterproofing system to fail. Leaks are often seen at  transitions between waterproofing and membrane air barriers purchased from different manufacturers. 

Once the waterproofing membrane is covered, reasonable and cost-effective resolutions are not an option to correct discontinuous waterproofing conditions. You only get one chance to get it right!
