Bathroom waterproofing is an essential part of the construction process. It is vital that it be carried out correctly to avoid the disruption and expense that is caused when a waterproofing membrane fails. While it may appear to be a simple job that anyone can do, it is crucial that all manufacturers specifications be followed and the waterproofing product itself be well tested and have a long history of successful use by the installer. 

At Brisbane Bathroom Waterproofing, we have used the same waterproofing product in over 600 bathrooms and other wet rooms. We are confident that we have the best systems in place to ensure your brand new dream bathroom doesn’t turn into a leaky nightmare.

Importance Of Bathroom Renovation Waterproofing

There are a number of reasons why you should renovate your bathroom, from fixing existing issues to a much needed design-facelift. Renovations can be exciting, but often we get swept away in the excitement of choices for bathroom features and furniture. 

While it’s important to find the right tile or vanity, waterproofing will always be the most important part of a bathroom renovation. Here are a few reasons why engaging one of our bathroom waterproofers is a great option when starting your bathroom renovations.

Your Brisbane Bathroom Waterproofing expert will use the right products and techniques to:

  • Contain water leaks in dry and wet areas.  
  • Prolong the life of your bathroom or laundry.
  • Reduce moisture and mould which can cause health complications.
  • Protect your house from structural damage which can arise if leaking water reaches your internal walls or timber flooring.

Essential Bathroom Waterproofing Preparation

The following list are just some of the crucial items we check before starting any waterproofing process:

  • When waterproofing the floor for a bathroom, the subfloor must be solid and free from movement. Movement in the floor increases the probability that the membrane will fail as it stretches back and forth over time.
  • Whether you’re waterproofing to a concrete or fibre cement surface, it’s essential that all debris (old tile glue, plaster, dust and bedding) be removed before applying the waterproofing membrane. If the surfaces aren’t clean, the waterproofing will not adhere correctly, resulting in a potential and probable leak.
  • If the area that requires waterproofing is upstairs or on a hardwood floor then it must be sheeted in ceramic tile underlay. The underlay must be both glued and nailed with a minimum of 150 nails per sheet.

If you’re in South East Queensland and wondering, is there a bathroom waterproofer near me? We service all of Brisbane, including Brisbane Northside and Brisbane Southside, along with parts of the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.

The Risks Of Not Using A Licensed Bathroom Waterproofer

Most insurance companies won’t cover the cost of repairing a leaky bathroom if the waterproofing hasn’t been correctly installed by a qualified and licensed waterproofer. 

We provide a Form 16 upon completion which means that you are both covered by our company warranty for 7 years as well as your home and contents insurance if there was ever an issue down the track. 

Additionally, a contractor that is solely focused on making your bathroom water resistant will be familiar with The Building Code of Australia and ensure the work meets Australian Standards.
