Waterproofing is the very essential part of any structure construction. It Increases the Sustainable life of the construction by increasing your building value and thus avoids Structural Damage. It can reduce Maintenance Cost, Improves the air quality of the buildings, Prevents Costly Damage, Lowers your Heating and Cooling Costs overall creating a healthier home environment.Download Brochure
Roof Waterproofing from Panache gives the range of products protecting the roof from water leakage & weather resistance. Roof Waterproofing provides a complete system for protecting the roof from water leakage at various places & for various applications. Roof Waterproofing also has the specialty of providing a complete system for any problem with technical backups.
Waterproofing is the process of treating the surface or structure and making it waterproof or water-resistant so that it is protected from damages that water could bring and remains relatively unaffected by water or resists the ingress of water under specified conditions. Water-resistant and waterproof often refer to resistance to penetration of water in its liquid state and possibly under pressure, whereas damp proof refers to resistance to humidity or dampness.
It is essential to waterproof your buildings. Interior areas of buildings must be kept dry from roof to basement. Water infiltration can lead to damages such as insect infestation, mold, and in worst cases building failures. Waterproofing is very important as it helps keep your buildings dry. It helps reduce humidity inside the building and thereby protects things inside the building from damage caused due to humidity or water exposure. It is also important for the veracity of the building.
In areas that experience high annual rainfall and occasional flooding events, water-Proofing is a must. Foundations and basements need to be waterproof, especially in areas where the groundwater table is high.
Plaster for complete construction can be made water-resistant with the use of Waterproofing admixes. There are different types of waterproofing methods based on the use of chemicals and methodology.
There are Different Types of Waterproofing Methods Popularly Used In Construction
Conventional waterproofing - Brick Bat Coba
Liquid Waterproofing Membrane
Bituminous Coating Waterproofing.
Bituminous Membrane Waterproofing
Polyurethane Liquid Membrane Waterproofing.
PVC membrane Waterproofing
Crystalline Waterproofing/Bio Concrete waterproofing
Depending on the level of water damage or owner preference, waterproofing systems can be installed indoors or outdoors.
The concept of waterproofing or protecting buildings against the damaging action of water derives from the need to avoid water and humidity that act negatively upon construction and materials used in construction. This negative effect manifests in several ways, creating health problems, structural deterioration, corrosion which is like cancer in a building, facility damage, and several other problems.
1. RISK OF DAMAGING YOUR PROPERTY: One small leakage can cause a lot of damage to your interior, and it can damage structures such as floor joints, beams, floors, studs, skirting, and frames. It can also cause blistering of paint and swelling of plasterboards. Water leakage might also cause a possible short circuit of lighting and PowerPoint. All of this can cause serious damage to the building’s appearance and structure and provide a place for mildew and molds to grow.
2. HEALTH RISKS: When moisture finds its way inside your house, the moisture trapped in the house has the potential to become a breeding ground for fungi, molds, and mildew. It projects spores into the air, which may lead to many health problems leading to allergic reactions, asthma attacks, and other infections and irritations. This can also breed mosquitoes and pose more serious health problems such as dengue fever. It is always healthy and preferable to get waterproofing done to your roof at the right time, and that will keep you and your family away from any expected and unexpected health problems.
3. LONGEVITY: By waterproofing, you will have a membrane protecting your roof at all times, this membrane gives an additional layer of protection from leaks by rain, snow, wind, decay, and wear. This membrane also reflects sunlight, reduces the impact of extreme light and heat on your roof, and makes it more comfortable to live in. Thinking about waterproofing can help prevent further problems and headaches about the matter later. On the other hand, waterproofing also reduces the risk of critical damage. Most waterproofing solutions can last up to ten years and extend the lifetime of your existing roof.
4. COST SAVING: A Waterproof roof coating is very simple to repair and also to maintain as it saves a lot of money than your existing roof infrastructure. Not only does it reduce wear and tear, but it is also significantly cheaper than an overall roof overhaul and repair. By having a waterproof coating, you are also spared the frequent maintenance cost, and roof repairs will not be frequent. Prevention is always better than cure, so without waterproofing, the cost of the roof repair process might blow your budget. By installing waterproofing, you will experience significant cost savings as a long-term investment.

Waterproofing From Panache Provides With The Unique Products. For Complete building enveloping, Panache can assist you to achieve the best cooling + waterproofing treatment solution for your project.
Panache provides two types of waterproofing -
A) Protective Grade Waterproofing
B) Exposed Grade Waterproofing
A) Protective Grade Waterproofing - When the surface is waterproofed, it has to be protected by screed/tiling, etc. This normally is done on the mother slab on new construction.
FAP (Fabric applied protective waterproofing )
2K Waterproofing (2 component waterproofing)
FAP Waterproofing ( Fabric Applied Protective Waterproofing)
Fabric or Fibre mess laying with priming
Preparation of Product Mix
Finishing and submission of the surface.
In FAP waterproofing, the fabric is reinforced along with the use of waterproofing 2 K chemicals Hi Seal slurry liquid & hi Seal slurry powder or cement. The on-site emulsion is made by these 2 K waterproofing chemicals and fabric reinforced for strong binding and bearing the expansion-contraction of the substrate and bridging the cracks.
C) Exposed Grade Waterproofing
Exposed waterproofing is done on the existing roofs or roofs exposed directly to Sun radiations. This type of waterproofing is with the added benefit of cooling.
FASC -(fabric applied sustainable cooling )
Benefits of Panache Systems -
Highly tough & flexible cooling and the waterproof layer formed.
Can be done on China Mosaic defected roofs also.
Minimum life of 4 to 5 years over other conventional products.
Best for existing roofs.
All the products of panache are Green Pro & GRIHA certified. The Company is also in process of getting EPD certification. The use of Panache products in any project results in a reduction in Power Costs, CO2 Emissions & UHI Impacts, and an increase in Thermal Comfort & Health Benefits. Panache believes in providing.

A Cool Roof coatings consists of a binder (usually an organic compound or silicone compound) blended with pigments and other additives to provide two main benefits: protection of roof membranes for longer roof life cycles; and reflectivity of solar radiation, for lower air conditioning costs.
The main components of most Cool Roof coatings are the binder, pigment, water and reflective pigments. Water serves as a liquid carrier, which provides viscosity, allowing the pigment and binder to be spread on the roof as a thin coating. The majority of white coatings in use today are water-based coatings
An energy efficient , white, reflective, elastomeric coating manufactured by Panache can reflect up to 92% of visible light, keeping the roof surface much cooler than with aluminum, black, or non-reflective roofing materials. Lower temperatures mean less energy usage, and translate to money saved. Elastomeric roof coatings protect the roof substrate adding years to your roof, plus saves against costly tear-offs and re-roofing.
