Waterproofing and retiling Mona Vale on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
The waterproofing problem at this home in Mona Vale was caused by water leaking behind the wall taps along with the wall to bath join.
Detecting the waterproofing problem
In this older style bathroom, the shower was located over the bath. Each time someone had a shower, water was leaking behind the bath and into the wall cavity. Additionally, water was leaking from the taps into the wall behind the shower. This job was a dual waterproofing problem.
Fixing the leaking shower and bath
To rectify the problem we had to remove the existing tiles behind the shower and the first row of tiles around the bath. Remnants of the old waterproofing, although very minimal, was also cleaned up.
After thoroughly cleaning the area, we then applied two coats of polyurethane waterproofing to the wall behind the shower and the first row of tiles around the bath. This provides an impenetrable waterproof barrier protecting the wall substrate, even if the tile grout and silicone fails at any time in the future.
After the waterproofing polyurethane had dried completely, the tiler retiled the exposed area. He then reinstated the shower and bath taps.
