Waterproofing Your Home

Waterproofing Your Home

8th February 2019

Sometimes it can be a little too late when you realise that you have water coming through your ceilings from your bathroom. A disaster awaits, and action needs to be taken fast to prevent the unthinkable. Have you thought about waterproofing your bathroom?

If you are giving your bathroom a facelift, vinyl and tiles applied directly to floorboards will reduce the cost of your bathroom installation, however, will not protect you with the build-up of water in your bathroom.

To avoid further problems have a look at our top tips for keeping the water in the right places in your bathroom.

Begin by treating your bathroom as if it was a wet room. Using boarding and adhesives, will create your water barriers in the room and prevent any moisture from travelling any further. You don’t have to lose the look of your bathroom, opting for traditional suites. You can still have your wet room upstairs in your home; waterproofing is solely reliant on how well you seal your rooms.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why Waterproof?

Prevents in your bathroom
Stops leaks in your bathroom. Water will always find its way down, and if a crack in your floor starts to appear or even a gap in your tile, you will soon see that moisture and damp are making their way to the ground floor of your house.

Prevents damp and mould
Adding a top layer of waterproof materials between your tiles and your floor can prevent damp and mould from getting into your home. Waterproofing acts as an extra layer in your home, between your walls and decorative surfaces such as tiles serving as a proper channel of insulation.
