Proper acrylic waterproofing system installation services can protect your home or business from water incursion for many years – which Revo-seal does using the correct materials.

Acrylic is a plastic made from acrylic acid. And polymer acrylic is commonly used in waterproofing because of its versatility, strength, and ability to endure harsh weather such as Singapore’s rainy climate.

An acrylic waterproofing membrane is created by applying liquid coatings that cure to form a rubbery barrier against water penetration between the substrate of a wall or floor and the finished surface.

These coatings usually consist of a primer and two top coats, applied by roller, spray, or trowel.

An acrylic-based waterproofing formulation generally comprises a mix including:

  • Acrylic resin
  • Fillers such as calcium carbonate
  • Wetting agents
  • Plasticisers for flexibility

Acrylic polymer-based waterproofing is often the water resistance system of choice for roofs because, unlike sheet-based waterproofing like roof felt, liquid-applied acrylic waterproofing creates a one-piece, joint-free membrane.

Acrylic waterproofing can also be used to seal walls and floors in areas such as balconies.

Benefits of an acrylic waterproofing membrane

Acrylic waterproofing systems are extremely robust and very long-lasting. Acrylic-based waterproofing also has excellent bonding properties.

Other advantages of an acrylic polymer waterproofing coating include:

  • Ideal for uneven and porous surfaces.
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Ultraviolet (UV) light resistance
  • More give than cementitious waterproofing.
  • Kills bacteria.

Acrylic latex emulsions are effective in waterproofing above-grade (above ground level) parts of a building but aren’t recommended for basements, which are exposed to hydrostatic pressure that can force groundwater into the structure.

Revo-seal has the materials and workmanship to deliver effective acrylic waterproofing

A possible drawback of acrylic waterproofing is that some customers find it doesn’t last as long as they expected. This is because the durability of an acrylic waterproofing system depends on the quality of the polymer in the manufacturing process.

We use only materials from prominent brands known for their quality in the market. What’s more, we have a strong relationship with our materials suppliers, and we provide them with constant feedback about their products. This ensures we apply the most advanced waterproofing materials of the highest standard.

How long your acrylic waterproofing coating lasts also depends on the quality of workmanship. A shoddy job can allow water to pool on the membrane, causing it to re-emulsify and break down.

Maintenance of acrylic waterproofing membrane

Due to weathering, roofs with an acrylic waterproofing membrane generally lose the equivalent of a single coating every 5 to 10 years.

We recommend proper, regular maintenance – pressure washing and re-applying a top coat every few years – to avoid long-term loss of membrane thickness.

Of course, when quality acrylic waterproofing materials are installed by skilled technicians to create a watertight membrane of the correct depth, you can expect your waterproofing to last for many years.

Revo-seal will provide you with a standard warranty of 5 years, which we may be able to extend at added cost. This guarantees that in the unlikely event of issues caused by defective materials or poor work, we’ll put things right at no extra cost.

Acrylic waterproofing prices

Several factors determine our residential acrylic waterproofing prices, including the size of the area and ease of access.

Pricing for acrylic roof waterproofing also depends on whether we need to erect scaffolding or safety barriers and whether tiles require replacing.
