House of the Free SkippersBack to overview
The House of the Free Skippers is a famous and protected monument in the city centre of Ghent. This historical building was built in 1530 and suffered serious moisture-related problems, so renovation became urgent. The contractor responsible for the renovation of this beautiful building found a custom solution with BeSealed® hydrophilic waterstops.
To waterproof the typical weak spots like the construction joints, the contractor used Polybar+ hydrophilic waterstops. When groundwater or moisture infiltrates, these hydrophilic waterstops start to swell, eliminating leakage on the spot.
