Bathrooms are the areas that frequently exposed to wetness. When constructing or renovating a bathroom, many people miss the essential step of waterproofing them. Proper waterproofing will stop leakage in the bathroom wall, floor, and the ceilings. Water penetration in walls will also cause molds, excess moisture, peeling of paint along with other problems.
- Waterproofing acts as a barrier between the layers of flooring and prevents the water seepage and stops the occurrence of fungus.
- When there is a crack in walls, water will penetrate those cracks causing dampness in walls and ceilings and will cause damage to the electrical lines. These problems are prevented by waterproofing.
- Waterproofing helps to avoid expensive repairs as leaky bathrooms will cause discolouration and peeling of paint.
- It saves the building from structural damage and increases the property’s value.
Areas to check before waterproofing
- The pipelines near walls and floors.
- Concealed pipelines.
- Improper tiles.
- Beneath wash basins and bathtubs.
- Slopes that lead to the bathroom drain.
When thinking about waterproofing, the first step is to consult an expert who can identify the root cause of the problem. Once identified, it becomes an effortless process to waterproof your bathroom with durable solutions. Temporary waterproofing comes with several options like fixing the plumbing line, filling the cracks, tile joints and installing the correct bathroom fixtures.
Though these options offer solutions to water ingress if located properly, these are temporary which mean the problem can show its real face when it is out of control. Thusly, the clever approach of waterproofing bathrooms is two-component elastomeric waterproof and protective coating which forms waterproof membranes that protects the substrate.
Two-Component elastometric waterproofing
Two-Component elastometric coating will act as a protective shield for concrete and masonry surfaces that form the base for laying of tiles, granites and other kinds of flooring. This act as an apply & forgot option for the home owners. It will also function as a strong, non-toxic adhesive to cementitious surfaces with resistance to the chlorides commonly found in Indian bathrooms.
