Do you need to waterproof a wet area inside or outside your home? But you don’t know who to contact. Don’t worry; we can help you.
What is waterproofing?
Waterproofing is the installation of a wet area barrier on the walls and floors inside or outside your home to seal in moisture. This barrier then protects your home from water damage to ensure that it is structurally sound and not hazardous.
What happens when waterproofing fails?
When your bathroom or shower waterproofing fails you are often left to clean up the mess. But what you can see may not be all the damage caused. Some shower and bathroom leaks cause structural damage as water seeps into your home’s foundation and timbers. Plus, the wetness can attract other unwanted nasties such as white ants, who love moisture.
How can Bathroom Central help me?
We specialise in waterproofing. So we seal shower floors and walls, and bathroom floors in two story homes, as set out by the Building Code of Australia and Australian Standards (As 3740-1994). We also seal outdoor rain showers. All of our workmanship is guaranteed, and our technicians are licensed. Plus, we are members of the Master Builders Association, so you can rest assured that any waterproofing will last.
It is vital that a qualified waterproofer does all waterproofing in your home as all Australian states and territories have standards. In New South Wales and Queensland, anyone waterproofing must hold a license. In other Australian states and territories, waterproofers must issue a statement of compliance. These rules not only guarantee all work carried out but also validate that all workmanship complies with Australian Standards.
How long does it take to waterproof my wet areas?
In most cases, it takes around 12 hours to waterproof your wet areas from the start of work to the finish. Of course, this depends on the size of the area – some work may take a little longer. Bathroom Central also only uses the latest technology and products. Plus, our technicians are trained in the most up-to-date techniques, so that they can give you the best quality in workmanship.
