How to avoid these issues?
Waterproofing is not a repair, but a preventive measure that must occur right at the construction stage. The aim is to waterproof the bathroom sunken areas, incorrect slopes, and leaks at facets and fitting.
Waterproofing of bathroom sunken areas occurs below the tiles to ensure there is no water seepage to the floor below. Another important aspect in bathroom waterproofing is to protect water seepage through tile gaps, these are the narrow gaps between tiles that make the floor susceptible to leaks. These leaks are fixable by adding tile grouts and reinforcing the tile work.
Apart from the gap on the floor and tiles, there is also a need to cover any cracks, pores, or imperfections near the bathroom fixtures.
These waterproofing paints, membranes, and filling are a combination of chemicals and water-resistant materials. These waterproofing solutions when obtained from a reliable source, last for many years and provide ultimate protection.
