This study provide a better and more scientifically based understanding of the role of waterproofing materials to assist the prevention of moisture from penetrating sub-grade walls and slabs. The significance of the research topic is to provide a review of the development of waterproofing materials in implementing waterproofing system in building industry with some case study reference in the current market in India.
