The weather changes such as rain, wind, or snow can bring water to commercial buildings that are sufficient to cause structural damage and gradually causes damage to the interior with the passage of time. This is only the reason why the roof and walls, and other points of the buildings are constructed strong.
However, they need to combat the severe elements and protect the interior of the building. But these exterior features require effective assistance of commercial foundation waterproofing service (also called SERVICE D’IMPERMABILISATION DE FONDATIONS COMMERCIALES in the French language) in the exterior part to make them more durable and able to withstand constant exposure to the weather.

An exterior waterproofing system for commercial buildings makes use of sealing air barrier to ward off water intrusion. The walls are asleep-sealed bottom plate and the inner corners. Air sealing is also performed for the electrical and plumbing systems, such as cable boxes, or sheathings.
Roof overhang extensions, not just a roof system. Roof overhang also keeps rainwater away during bad weather. They control rainwater runoff and prevent it from directly entering through doors and windows. Therefore the roof overhang is an important part of the commercial exterior waterproofing system.
Although the installation of the exterior waterproofing system most appropriate for a commercial building, it is unavoidable that water may still penetrate the barrier system of the building. When there is moisture intrusion, it is not often easy to remove and dry the area.
To prevent moisture from getting trapped and unable to leave the building, the exterior of the commercial waterproofing system must include a drainage plane systems.
