RESIDENCE QUADRIVIUM in Castelnuovo del Garda: advanced construction techniques such as waterproofing for balconies.
Balconies and terraces are subjected to bad weather, which can cause unattractive flaking plaster on walls or cracked tiles on the floor. Years of experience in the field have taught us that water can seep in through the flooring of balconies and terraces, collecting between the tiles and the waterproof layer underneath. The water in the cement is then absorbed by the plaster on the walls, in the long term causing the paint to flake; furthermore, when the temperature drops below zero, the tiles may shatter and become detached. These problems are not found in Abitare Evoluto buildings, because before the tiles are laid on balconies and terraces, the cement is treated with a special waterproofing layer of cement called "Idrobuild", which provides a shield against water infiltration.
