Shower Waterproofing Goldcoast & Brisbane
Brisbane, Ipswich, Logan, Gold Coast, Tweed Heads to Byron Bay
Shower waterproofing traditionally refers to the waterproofing membrane which is applied beneath surface of your shower. This waterproofing membrane is designed to catch & stop any water
that penetrates through the surface of the shower tiles and grout lines. It acts much like a bucket under your shower and should protect the surrounding areas of your dwelling from water damage.
These shower waterproofing membranes fail due to a number of reasons including poor installation, other trades placing objects on the shower waterproofing membrane during construction, the tiler coming in too soon before the shower waterproofing membrane has had time to dry. the tiler jamming tiles in and ripping the shower waterproofing membrane, excessive building movement can also result in the shower water proofing membrane being damaged. Shower waterproofing membranes can also naturally break down over time.
The traditional way of fixing a leaking shower waterproofing membrane obviously involves ripping up all the tiles and re applying the shower waterproofing membrane then retiling and sealing the shower. This method is definitely effective if done correctly and offers a long term solution to the problem. However the downside of this method is that it does take roughly 5 days to complete and is expensive in comparison to our Ultra Bond Technology system. It can also be difficult trying to find matching tiles when re tiling.
It is important to note that Shower Sealed are not criticizing traditional waterproofing methods . As licensed waterproofers we will suggest this style of membrane waterproofing when it is needed in conjunction with our shower tiling and or shower renovation services. It is also important to note that installing waterproofing membrane (below the tiles) is an Australian standard and is the only way you can be provided with a form 16 waterproofing certificate.
Overall our goal with our Ultra Bond Technology is to save you the time money & hassle of removing tiles if possible.
Should we determine that the shower does need to be re-waterproofed and tiled then we always follow Australian Waterproofing Standards.
