Terrace waterproofing is the process of applying a waterproof membrane or coating to the surface of a terrace in order to prevent water from penetrating the structure and causing damage.
This can include applying sealants, coatings, or membranes to the surface of the terrace, as well as installing drainage systems to channel water away from the structure.
The goal of terrace waterproofing is to protect the underlying structure from water damage and ensure a safe and durable surface for people to walk on.

A terrace waterproofing detail drawing is a technical drawing that provides specific information about the materials and methods used to waterproof a terrace. The drawing should include detailed information such as the type and thickness of the waterproofing membrane or coating, the method of application, and any drainage systems that will be installed.
It may also include details about the type of flashing or sealant used, as well as information about how the terrace is connected to the building.
The detail drawing will also include information about the slope and fall of the terrace, as well as the position of the drainage system, and the location of the weepholes. It will also include information about the type and location of the barrier layer and the type of surface finish.
It is important to note that, a good terrace waterproofing system should consist of multiple layers, including a barrier layer, a drainage layer, and a surface finish. Each layer plays a specific role in protecting the underlying structure and ensuring a safe and durable surface for people to walk on.
