Waterproofing Planters

While planters are known to provide a natural aesthetic accent to the appearance of any building, apartment or condominium community, or commercial business, they must also be waterproofed. Sometimes, the waterproofing system inside a planter may wear down over time, or perhaps a planter drain might rust or crack. If you find that your planters are leaking, look no further.

 

At WICR Waterproofing & Decking, we can assist you with repairing existing planters that are leaking, or waterproofing new planters that are being installed on your property.

Raised planters are usually located either on the ground or on a deck surface. It is not enough to simply place a planter or potted plant on the deck, since this can cause rotting or damage to the surface and substrate by trapping water. Instead, we assist by installing the necessary waterproofing, as well as drainage, irrigation systems and other features to ensure the beauty and overall longevity of the vegetation.

 

We also do waterproofing projects when a raised planter or below-grade planter is causing leaks into the building foundation or an underground parking garage. In many cases, below-grade planters have not been properly installed with waterproofing and sealant to ensure that the water used to irrigate the vegetation does not seep into the adjacent structure. Our waterproofing company can help you fix the problem by applying waterproof membranes, as well as a drainage system to draw off the excess water. We commonly use Vulkem Coatings and Tremdrain Drainage Systems for this type of project. Whether you are interested in planters as part of a new construction project,or if you need waterproofing solutions to stop leaks and rotting caused by an existing planter, contact us now for an inspection and estimate!
