Grade-level Waterproofing: Plazas, Promenades and Terraces

Grade-level Waterproofing refers to the treatment of surfaces or structures at grade in order to prevent the passage of water into the building under hydrostatic pressure. Typically, then, these surfaces are horizontal but are located only at grade (though they may serve as a roof to, say, an underground parking garage, their primary function is a surface intended for human access). By contrast, roofing systems waterproof a roof surface (above grade) that isn't necessarily subject to hydrostatic pressure.
