Project: Bathroom waterproofing Wahroonga

Waterproofers Northern Beaches

We recently waterproofed a Wahroonga bathroom that was being completely renovated.

The first step in this bathroom waterproofing project was to completely strip out the existing PC items (shower, bath, vanity, handrails, etc) and all old floor and wall tiles.

From a waterproofers perspective, this is a dream scenario.  As you can see from the photo above, starting with a clean slate we were able to easily apply the waterproofing product easily to the floor, walls and inside the shower cavity. This involved our waterproofer applying several coats of polyurethane waterproofing to the walls and floor which provides an impenetrable barrier, even if the tile grout fails in the future.

Once the waterproofing product was completely dry, our tilers were able to lay the new wall and floor tiles.  The builders could then install the taps, shower fittings, toilet and vanity.

With the job completed correctly and to Australian standards, we supplied the client with a waterproofing certificate.

What is a waterproofing certificate? 

A waterproofing certificate is a document that confirms that a waterproofing system or product used in a building or construction project complies with the relevant Australian waterproofing standards and regulations and must be issued by a . A waterproofing certificate must be issued by a licensed waterproofer (like the waterproofers at Drip Dry Showers). A waterproofing certificate may also be provided by a qualified building inspector after inspecting and testing the waterproofing system.

The importance of bathroom waterproofing

Bathroom waterproofing is important because it helps to protect the structural integrity of the home by preventing damage caused by water.

Water damage caused by a lack of waterproofing or breakdown of existing waterproofing can be costly to repair and can even pose health and safety risks.

Due to the presence of water from showers, baths and sinks, bathrooms are one of the most common areas of the home where water damage can occur

Common issues caused by waterproofing problems in bathrooms include:

  • peeling paint
  • mould
  • timber rotting
  • structural damage to walls and floors

Not only are these problems unsightly but can compromise the safety of the building and the health of the occupants.  Rotting timber can weaken the structural integrity of the property. Mould and damp issues can cause health problems such as asthma and respiratory problems.
