Waterproofing is the most important factor when tiling a bathroom or kitchen. As a Gold Coast tiling company with over 30 years of industry experience, we’ve seen botched waterproofing cost thousands in repairs.
We’re adamant that you seek professionals as effective waterproofing is vital for bathrooms, laundries and kitchen splashbacks to stay in long-lasting condition. Were happy to visit your house free of charge. However, even contractors are at risk of failure as the slightest leak can develop a range of problems. Whether you’re DIY or hiring someone, it is best to know everything so you can make sure the job is done correctly.
A flaw in your waterproofing can happen instantly upon completion of a project or over time with decomposing sheeting. Water escaping from a shower, bath or basin can remain unnoticed for long periods & cause serious damage so check areas on an incline (water can’t go uphill)
Faulty waterproof signs are:
- Excess Mould
- Moist skirting
- Peeling paint/ Irregular colouring
- Plasterboard Decay
Do Waterproofers need to have a License?
Yes! Of course we do.
In New South Wales and Queensland, the person who undertakes the waterproofing must hold a current waterproofer’s license which requires a Certificate III in Construction Waterproofing.
We understand the importance of waterproofing and everyone on our workforce are qualified professionals. We’re happy to supply you with our waterproofing certificate and give you 7 years warranty on any project we complete for you.
How much does bathroom waterproofing cost?
The industry standard for waterproofing can cost as little as $40 per square metre and that is the low end of the scale.
