Expert Advice On Waterproofing Your Home
Water damage is responsible for more than 80% of strata building problems in Sydney NSW. It is possible to make buildings safe and prevent tenant income loss by using the right waterproofing systems. We offer the best waterproofing Sydney services when it comes to areas such as balconies, bathrooms, and showers.
How long does waterproofing take
The waterproofing membrane should be installed by professionals to ensure its durability. Most waterproof products come with a minimum of 7-year warranty. However, if the membrane is properly applied, it may last longer. Signs that your bathroom is leaking include swelling of skirting boards, peeling paint or mould stains under walls and ceiling surfaces.
Types and applications of waterproofing membrane
Waterproof membranes are an important part of waterproofing systems and are available in many designs. There are two types of rubber pvc sheet membrane: one that rolls off onto the surface, and is torch-on membranes; and another that comes in liquid rubber forms that can be applied with brushes or rollers. Bathrooms are most common with liquid rubber membranes. They have a great flexibility and are easy to install.
The best way to waterproof your bathroom
It is not a good idea to attempt a bathroom remodel or bathroom waterproofing job yourself. To do the job correctly, licensed professionals are required. We follow these guidelines.
* Prime all surfaces. Clear any obstructions to waterproofing, e.g. between the walls and the shower floor.
* Use a paint scraper to remove old silicon and seal the gaps with silicon
* Two coats of waterproof barrier should be applied with a sufficient drying time between. Each coat should be applied in a different direction, e.g vertical first coat and horizontal second coat.
Before applying tile adhesives, membranes should be allowed to dry completely.

To waterproof your balcony, you will need to add a waterproofing membrane on the top layer to prevent water damage. These materials are more susceptible to water damage than concrete or wooden balconies. The water absorbs into the material, which causes it to crack or soften. We can help you protect your balcony with our Sydney waterproofing solutions.
