Waterproofing is a process where building surfaces or structures are treated through the
application of membranes or coatings to prevent water or moisture from passing through into
the internal areas. This is important for protecting structural integrity, the longevity of building
materials, and the prevention of fungal growth. Waterproofing workers install and repair
waterproofing systems using a variety of materials, which they prepare, mix and apply.
Individuals who are suited to this trade are physically fit and comfortable working outdoors.
