Happy New Year – welcome to 2016
Category : News
2015 was one of Southland’s best years. We’re hoping to back that up with another year of customer satisfaction this year in 2016. We look forward to working with our loyal customers and creating solutions for new customers.
In 2015 we discovered:
- More and more builders are realising that paint-on waterproofing inside concrete water storage tanks is not reliable. Concrete moves and even small cracks in the wall/floor joints will cause paint-on waterproofing to fail. Instead, builders are now preempting this and insisting on rubber pre-fabricated independent membranes in their tanks.
- Builders are now tied to 7 year defect liability periods by law. This means they can’t rely on products that simply do not last that long (despite what the warranty states). Rubbers outlast all similar materials not only in warranty period but also in proven working life.
- Builders are turning to Southland for a rubber solution after alternative material solutions fail.
Southland only supply rubber membranes. Rubber is an expensive material but with long term benefits. The Australian building industry is now demanding long term solutions to water storage problems. Contact Southland now for more solutions
