The cold applied liquid waterproofing systems are typically one part liquid rubber type materials that are squeegeed into place with or without felt reinforcement. These materials are typically used in below grade basement walls and horizontal decks which may be roofs of parking garages, basements, occupied below grade spaces.
The waterproofing is installed directly to the structural wall or deck, typically concrete, then insulation, protection and or drainage board is installed with final topping of pavers, concrete, soil to plant grass or even garden vegetative coverings.
Cold applied liquid waterproofing systems have been used for years, as have other types of materials. For all types of waterproofing, there are even technologies that can track where a leak might be located, important for waterproofing that's typically buried under heavy, thick coverings.
