How does the waterproofing process work?

There are many types of waterproofing implemented to protect your Preston home. We’ve outlined some of the techniques we use at Citi Tiling Group below.

There are many types of waterproofing implemented to protect your Preston home. We’ve outlined some of the techniques we use at Citi Tiling Group below

Membrane waterproofing

Before the walls and flooring is completed, we clean the surface and apply a membrane waterproofing agent that will serve as a protective barrier. This is typically sprayed or painted on and resembles a liquid rubber.

Waterproofing Preston

Liquid sealant

This is applied to tiles in wet areas (like the shower or toilet), sealing them and preventing water from getting into the surface beneath. Our team uses a clear hybrid polyurethane liquid which seeps into any hairline cracks to ensure the best results.

Silicone sealant

Caulking is used to seal any gaps between floor and wall joints so that water will not be able to find its way through and spread to the rest of the house or result in mould.

Remedial waterproofing

We assess the area and the extent of the water damage to determine how we can help. If no structural work needs to be done, we will apply the waterproofing membrane to your floors and other surfaces to protect them from future damage. The crack spanning capabilities of the membrane mean that weak spots can easily be protected.

Balcony waterproofing

Balconies receive some of the worst wet weather head-on, meaning that having them waterproofed is essential. Unfortunately, many people miss this step and chances are that you may not have any waterproofing installed to prevent structural damage. If this is left long enough, you may need to replace the tiling or even the balcony entirely. Talk about a big job!

We offer complete balcony waterproofing to ensure that your surface is protected. We’ll assess if there’s any existing damage – and if so, how much – before applying our waterproof membrane to the surface.

We fix balconies for residents in Preston and for landlords who need to repair their balconies for tenants’ safety.

Bathroom waterproofing

Whether you’re building a brand new bathroom or undergoing bathroom renovations, waterproofing is a must. As this is the room that is most at risk from water damage, the Building Code of Australia and Australian Standards (AS 3740-1994) set out some clear guidelines and requirements:

  • Your shower floor must be waterproofed and the walls must be waterproofed up to at least 1800 mm
  • All other walls must be waterproofed up to at least 150 mm to protect them from any water on the floor
  • Over the step down must be waterproofed up to at least 150 mm
  • The entire bathroom floor must be waterproofed if it is above ground level or made of materials such as timber, particleboards, and plywood

Of course, these are only the minimum requirements in Australia. To protect your bathroom, you may want to consider having complete waterproofing. Our expert waterproofers will be able to assess the situation and the space, recommending the best way forward.
