WATERPROOFING

  What is Waterproofing?  

 

  Why do I need waterproofing?  

 

  Where should I waterproof my home?   

 

Well we’re here to help you answer these questions!

 

Waterproofing is vital for your home, particularly areas of high moisture. Waterproofing is the process where a combination of materials is used to prevent water ingress/invasion into the structural elements of your home, such as foundations, framing, floors, walls, roofs, basements etc.  

 

Water escaping from a shower and from around a bath, basin or the like can remain unnoticed for long periods of time and cause serious and costly damage. 

 

Areas that we recommend waterproofing include those subject to:

  • frequent and heavy wetting:

    • such as showers and open shower surrounds, splash areas around baths and basins

  • regular intermittent wetting:

    • such walls behind baths, basins and tubs, tiled entries as well where people will enter the house during periods of heavy rain

 

You may be tempted to accept a quick and cheap waterproof job but if it is done wrong, the costs to you can be unforgiving. Why not let the experts give you some advice on your project.
