Waterproofing is a crucial step in the construction or renovation of a room or home. As an often overlooked procedure, failure to waterproof your bathroom can potentially cause serious damage. The last thing you want is water seeping through your tiles, causing mould, decay and water leakages. Bathroom waterproofing should be undertaken by an experienced and qualified waterproofer. It is to ensure your bathroom is designed solidly from the ground up.
What Exactly is Bathroom Waterproofing?
It involves the use of membranes and coatings to protect walls and floors from moisture and water leakages. This can result in mould, deterioration and damage.
Waterproofing your bathroom involves a physical barrier being applied to the walls and floors to prevent the penetration of any moisture. In turn, this can help protect against any water damage or leakage.
