Your shower is arguably the most important wet area to have high-quality waterproofing. The chances of water damage in the shower are high if inadequate waterproofing has been installed. In Queensland, there are regulations in place to protect homeowners and tenants from the devastating effects of water ingress.
It is recommended that you enlist a seasoned professional to complete these services. There are trades that might have a QBCC waterproofing licence, such as plumbers or tilers. However, due to the risks involved, you should hire a qualified waterproofer that is focused solely on the trade.

Waterproofing is among the most common building defects reported in Queensland, particularly when it comes to repairing leaking showers and waterproofing shower walls and floors, bathrooms and laundries. This could be due to common misconceptions that concrete cement, bathroom sheets, tile and grout are water resistant. However, grout is actually porous and water flows beneath your tiles as a normal part of bathroom function.
A waterproofing barrier is required on the floors and walls to prevent water from penetrating these areas and causing structural damage or health complications. Brisbane Bathroom Waterproofing specialises in all of your waterproofing needs. We have renovated over 600 bathrooms and counting.
