Building waterproofing systems should always be inspected by a certified professional. As a part of their waterproofing warranty program, most waterproofing systems manufacturers now require a certified independent inspection, but it is also important to provide assurances to the architects and developers that the systems will work properly. Terra-Petra’s Waterproofing Division has a team of highly trained inspectors on staff who hold certifications from several of the major waterproofing manufacturers in the market today.
