This guide illustrates the waterproofing of different types of roofs. Whatever the area to be treated, several components are required. The right combination and compatibility are essential to ensure successful performance.

Based on our global knowledge of construction physics and our experience and track record in the repair and waterproofing of several structures, we know that Risk Management is a unique and relevant topic in the construction industry and requires reliability in all respects, including products, full system solutions (from membranes to detailing products), professional consultancy, approved and warrantied application, etc.

Causes of construction failures and the probability of their occurrence have been identified following several surveys  in Europe, resulting in four basic categories of deficiency: Design, Construction, Materials, Use and Maintenance.


To control these risks and secure their investment, owners, investors, general contractors and engineers first and foremost need complete waterproofing solutions supplied  by a reliable manufacturer with proven experience in Risk Management.

Risk Management provided by BASF focuses on reducing the probability of the occurrence of the causes that have been identified as damage generators:

  • Detailed analysis of needs and review of specifications and drawings to ensure perfect waterproofing.
  • Improving planning reliability of waterproofing installation objectives with defined product systems that include not only waterproofing membranes but also detailing such as joint treatment, crack injection, substrate repair, etc.
  • Ensuring greater certainty about technical application  and projected durability based on expert workmanship. 
  • Managing installation via BASF Licensed Contractors  and/or BASF Approved Applicators.
