Here are just some of the best products on the market for waterproofing:

Masonry Solutions: 

Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream:

Stormdry® FD-Coat – Flood Defence Crack Bridging Waterproofer is a clear water-resistant coating intended for use on masonry and stone. It can be used as a topcoat for Stormdry for properties at risk of low-level flooding. The clear liquid is ready for use and can be applied by brush and roller. Stormdry® FD-Coat forms a waterproof barrier and bridges small cracks in walls providing performance against flood water. The coating is partially breathable and gives a semigloss appearance which fades with time.

Mathys Murfill Waterproofing:

Mathys Murfill Waterproofing offers long-lasting elastic, aesthetic and waterproof wall protection. It produces an elastic, crack bridging and waterproofing façade coating with a microporous structure, ensuring that the base is constantly able to breathe. Ready for use and simple to apply on any façade.  It is 400% elastic which is waterproof and water vapour permeable. It provides excellent resistance against ageing in normal and industrial environments whilst protecting reinforced concrete against carbonisation and corrosion. 

Roof solutions:

Bedec Super-flex:

Bedec Super-Flex is a flexible elastomeric coating easily applied by brush, roller or spray to form a high build, seamless waterproof coating which economically prevents or cures all types of leaking roofs, gutters and walls. Super-Flex remains flexible and elastic to allow for movement of the substrate forming a long-life protective coating. Super-Flex is suitable for application to almost any surface including roofing tiles, slate, brick, concrete, corrugated iron, corrugated galvanising, asbestos, asphalt, felt, copper, zinc, lead, PVC or polycarbonate roof sheets, plus most plastics and timber.

Metal Solutions:

Rust-Oleum Noxyde Plus:

Rust-Oleum Noxyde Plus is a single pack, water-based elastomeric coating based on a silane modified acrylic binder with superior adhesion and corrosion protection. The product contains anti-corrosion pigments and is lead, chromate and zinc free. It can be used on iron, steel, special alloys, galvanised and metallised iron and steel, aluminium, copper, zinc, lead, etc. as rust prevention or waterproofing. It can also be used on interior or exterior substrates.

Swimming Pool Solutions:

Teamac Chlorvar:

Teamac Chlorvar chlorinated rubber (aka Coo-Car Swimming Pool Paint) can be applied to external and internal surfaces. The final coat must be allowed to cure for 14 days before water contact. If chlorinated rubber comes into water contact too soon, the coating will absorb water like a sponge and will blister and fail. Chlorinated rubber is only compatible with chlorinated rubber and not any other coating type as the solvent in chlorinated rubber is very aggressive and will attack other coatings, leading to complete coating failure to all applied coatings.

You can also find water-resistant decorative solutions from Zinsser, Dulux Trade, Sandtex Trade, Johnstone’s Trade, Thompsons and Ronseal
