At Raise + Relevel, we understand every building is unique, and so are its water management needs.

From expandable granular bentonite to waterproofing membranes, our approach ensures that once we address a leak, it stays sealed.

With years of experience under our belt, we’re committed to delivering results to keep your property dry, stable, and secure. Raise + Relevel is your trusted partner in protecting your property against water ingress and leaks.

What Is Water Stopping and Leak Management?

Water stopping and leak management uses advanced techniques and high-quality materials to seal leaks and prevent future water ingress, ensuring the durability and longevity of your building.

Whether it’s small cracks in your foundation or larger issues with construction joints, our team has the expertise to handle it all. Techniques like polyurethane sealant applications and expandable granular bentonite injections are just a few of the methods we use to create a robust barrier against water. These materials expand and fill gaps, providing an effective seal that keeps water out.

We may also use composite water stop. This is made of durable materials that can withstand significant water pressure, protecting your building against water damage that can compromise structural integrity. With solutions like hydrophilic waterstops and PVC waterstops, we ensure every potential entry point for water is secure.

Water stopping and leak management are about protection. They help you avoid expensive repairs and maintain the value and safety of your property. Whether you’re dealing with leaks around stone tiles, bathroom accessories, or major foundational structures, we provide peace of mind and long-lasting results.

What Types of Water Leaks Are There?

Water leaks can happen anywhere on a property, with the most common places including:

Expansion and Construction Joints: Natural movement and settling over time make these areas susceptible to leakage. Water can seep through gaps that develop when buildings shift and expand. To address this, we use products like hydrophilic waterstops and PVC waterstops, which expand upon contact with water, effectively sealing these joints and preventing further leaks.

Concrete Slabs and Walls: Small cracks in concrete slabs and walls can result from shrinkage, poor craftsmanship, or repeated cycles of wetting and drying. While these cracks may not seem significant at first, if left unrepaired, they can allow a considerable amount of water to seep in. Proper sealing of these cracks using products like polyurethane sealer and Tremco waterstop ensures that water can’t penetrate and compromise the structural integrity.

Bathrooms and Kitchens: These areas are often prone to leaks due to the numerous fixtures and fittings, including stone tiles and bathroom accessories. Water can easily penetrate through cracks around these systems. We apply a watertight barrier using tile glue and a waterproofing membrane to keep these areas dry and secure.

Retaining Walls: Retaining walls are constantly exposed to moisture from rainwater or the earth, making leaks and potential structural damage quite likely. To help prevent this causing major problems, we create a complete seal using sheet membranes and waterproofing materials to keep water out of these spaces.

Roofs and Suspended Slabs: Roofs and suspended slabs are directly exposed to rain and other weather elements, which over time can lead to leaks jeopardising the overall integrity of the structure. We use traffic coatings and water stops to make sure these surfaces are well protected from water penetration. This also extends their lifespan.

Why Do You Need Water Stopping & Leak Management?

Serious damage to your property from water leaks can lead to structural decay, mould growth, and increased repair expenses, among other things. Expert water stopping and leak management services can help with the following:

  • Prevents Structural Damage: We help maintain the structural integrity of your building by sealing leaks in critical areas such as expansion and construction joints. This prevents deterioration of your foundation and other essential parts, keeping your property safe and secure.


  • Saves Money and Time: Properly managed leaks can extend the life of your building materials, and early leak repair prevents the need for more expensive and time-consuming major repairs in the future.
  • Ensures Safety and Comfort: With the right management, you are assured of safety and comfort in a dry and stable environment, free from uneven and sinking floors. This is particularly important in living spaces and workplaces where a safe environment enhances productivity and well-being.
  • Addresses Specific Challenges: Unique solutions, such as mass concrete or chemical underpinning, are available for different types of leaks, such as those in reactive clay areas or caused by high water pressure. Our team has the expertise to identify and address these issues to provide effective custom solutions.
