Green roof or roof garden is a essential element of green architecture, a growing trend that encourages sustainability in building constructions. However, many have been reluctant to the idea of roof garden, since its determining factor is also its biggest struggle: WATERPROOFING.
There are numerous waterproofing solutions available in the market, all with different applications: concrete mixture, crystallization, liquid absorption, surface covering using bitumen liquid, self-adhesive or torch applying membranes, etc. In some cases the waterproofing system required 3, 4, or even 5 separate layers, which was extremely complicated and expensive.
Surprisingly, the complete waterproofing system is not yet available: according to the American Society of Home Inspectors, there are about 60% U.S. homes and basements have wet or moisture problem, and the most effective solution is installing drainage - sump pump and dehumidifier system, then keep it running along the life of the basement, up to 50 years.
