Why enrol?

Internal and external waterproofing is one of the top ten building defects home owners and building managers complain about. The average cost of repairs for a waterproofing defect is between six and ten times the original cost of the work.

This could equate to anywhere from $6,000 to $10,000 to fix a simple error.
