A research is presented using information from articles, books, technical manuals dealing with the importance of waterproofing on the structural parts of a building. The research seeks to understand which methods are used for its application, which are the most common problems and mainly the causes.In order to elucidate the matter, a study was first carried out on the standard that regulates waterproofing in structures, as well as its importance, and the main processes to be used to solve the problems encountered. There was a lack of waterproofing projects and plans in the work, which consequently generate more costs at the end of the work due to its misuse or even its lack, as well as the types of moisture that affect the structures and which procedures to be taken in the beams baldrames and slabs, important structures of a building.The number of pathologies related to water infiltration found in buildings is relevant and this brings great concerns for the future, as in a world that is constantly evolving in civil construction, it is absurd to have to see such an important step being relegated by responsible professionals. Its use must be precise and safe, as well as it must be accompanied by a qualified professional in the area, as the subject requires knowledge for the success of its application.
