Bathroom and wet-room waterproofing

Waterproofing is the process of applying a waterproof barrier around an area that is likely to get wet such as bathrooms, laundries and balconies. This prevents moisture from seeping through and damaging the underlying structure of the building.

Bathrooms and other wet areas are a major concern for property owners when water starts leaking in areas it shouldn’t. This can lead to many issues such as damage to plaster and paint work, rotting floors, rotting structural timber, not to mention the growing of mould in areas you may not be able to see. Many leaky building problems stem from bathrooms and wet areas not being waterproofed properly. The cost of fixing leaky bathrooms and wet areas can be considerable not to mention the inconvenience of having no bathroom for a period of time while the problem gets fixed.

Consideration of bathroom and wet area waterproofing prior to construction is an integral part of the design and build process.

Waterproofing in wet areas involves applying a waterproof barrier to prevent moisture from seeping into areas it shouldn’t.

NECTAR can firstly ensure your falls for water are correct by applying the correct level of screed and then we can apply liquid waterproofing membranes to all required areas, before your tiles or other floor and wall finishes go down.

Getting your bathroom or wet area properly waterproofed in the beginning will save you time and money in the long run.
