Waterproofing the home is an important step in protecting one of your biggest investments. Waterproofing a property does not just refer to the roof but extends to every possible nook, cranny and inconspicuous area of a house, including the basement, foundations, garages, balconies and roofs, as well as other areas in a property.

Why is Waterproofing So Important?

Besides the obvious benefit of keeping the occupants of a property dry, there is a multitude of reasons why waterproofing the home is so important. If you don’t pay attention, water can:
· quickly erode mortar and brick, ruin plasterwork and rot wood causing structural damage
· lead to rising damp
· create peeling paint
· corrode pipes and other metal structures
· encourage the growth of fungi, mildew and mould that release spores and cause health problems—as well as being ugly to look at.

A Well Ventilated Area is less Susceptible to Water Damage

As water tends to cause damage in poorly ventilated areas, where possible, making sure that the property is well-ventilated can help to prevent water damage. So, in steamy bathrooms and kitchens use extractor fans and open windows to allow moisture vapour to escape rather than letting it condense onto a surface. But, damp areas of the home, such as basements, are also susceptible to water damage. If it is not practical to improve ventilation, then a waterproofing system should be applied.

Waterproofing Behind Tiles

In bathrooms, the floor and walls are two of the most vulnerable areas and even though tiles and grout are waterproof, extra protection in the form of applying a waterproof membrane will ensure complete protection.

This is where a professional waterproofer comes in. With vast experience in waterproofing jobs, we can advise you on the most suitable waterproofing protection for the job in hand and advise you of any areas of concern and the best way you can make them waterproof.

Using a waterproof membrane behind the tiles ensures the wall or floor remains watertight even if there is a weak link in the grout between the tiles, or elsewhere.

Do I Need to Hire a Professional Waterproofer?

The simple answer is “Yes, you must hire a professional and licensed waterproofer to ensure the waterproofing is carried out correctly. The most common areas that need waterproofing are bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms, in fact all wet areas.

Not hiring a qualified and licensed professional waterproofer could lead to water damage to your property. Our contractors are all highly experienced and licensed in all aspects of waterproofing, bringing a wealth of expertise that ensures the job is carried out properly.

We carry out a thorough assessment and know exactly what applications are the best solutions for the job in hand. So, you can relax knowing the job is completed efficiently, and on time every time.

It’s never a good idea to skimp on hiring a professional waterproofer, especially when it’s as important as preventing damage to property.

The guys at Aussie Tilers did the tiling in my elderly mother’s renovated bathroom. They were extremely professional, respectful and patient while dealing with my mother, and she just loves her new bathroom. I would recommend them most highly.
