Waterproof from basement to roof, not bit by bit

Don’t approach waterproofing piecemeal. It's too risky an area to have gaps in a specification. It’s no good having a dry roof if the basement isn’t. Or a balcony membrane that can’t be detailed into a window reveal. Fail-safe waterproofing specifications take the whole structure into consideration - top to bottom, basement to roof.
