waterproof wet areas
Nothing causes damage quite like water leaking in a building. Moisture in a structure can lead to mould, bacteria and rot.
Unless identified and rectified, moisture can spread throughout the building and affect other rooms and even the foundations. Protecting the structural integrity of your building is essential to protect your investment and resale value of your property. Additionally, certain mould and bacteria can cause serious health problems for occupants of the building if left untreated.
Waterproofing is not a process you should DIY (do it yourself), even if you were able to learn how to do it, the products available to the public is inferior to industry-grade products professional like us have access to.
What causes water leaks?
Leaks in a building are caused by poor surface preparation. If not properly primed, waterproofing membranes can fail to bond to the surface, causing the membrane to blister due to poor drainage and moisture buildup.
This moisture buildup can then develop into cracks, mildew and rot, spreading throughout the entire structure if not resolved.
Priming for all surfaces – CFC, concrete, mortar screeds and plywood substrates – should always be performed with the manufacturer’s specified primer by a qualified professional.
