Insulation and waterproofing systems protect the buildings from damp and is a very important factor that improves the economic operation of a building. This superior technique significantly reduces the losses and unhealthy conditions of a space because of humidity. The terminology comes from two words: liquid + insulation (= the isolation of space from liquids). We apply the waterproofing system to a space or a surface such as roofs – basement walls – swimming pools – jacuzzi – hammam – showers so that water cannot penetrate it, using waterproofing materials (waterproof construction).

- PVC membranes
- EPDM membranes
- Molded polyurethane film
- Cast hybrid membrane
- Cementitious materials
- Crystalline cementitious materials
Kotsonis InsulationThermal insulation
The process of thermal insulation improves the thermal inertia of the building ensuring its energy upgrade and absolute protection from the weather – climatic conditions (heat, cold, humidity) preventing even its gradual destruction. A well-applied thermal insulation optimizes the performance of the wall throughout the seasons and can reduce consumption costs up to 50%. The application of thermal insulation reduces heat dispersion and fuel consumption for heating and cooling as well as optimizes the performance of the wall throughout the seasons. In the summer months, the heat of the outdoor environment does not penetrate indoors while in the winter months the room temperature remains the same since the walls that are insulated from the outside cold create a thermal exchange with the internal heated space of the building.

- Conventional Rooftops
- Inverted Rooftops
Kotsonis InsulationPlanted roofs
A green roof system is a layer of vegetation and growing flora planted over a waterproofing membrane installed on top of a building. Green roofs serve several purposes for a building, such as absorbing rainwater, providing insulation and helping to lower urban air temperatures at tolerable levels for the living of the inhabitants. Planted roofs with the appropriate infrastructure (anti-root membrane, drainage system, filters, growing soil substrate), contribute to improving the principles of water management and positive effect of the urban environment.
