A bad bathroom waterproofing or lack of waterproofing can be a nightmare. It can destroy interior decorations and in worst case cause a huge mess to the inhabitants of already completed projects.
Majority of people will tile or repaint the toilet walls or redo the plasterboards while renovating their bathrooms as a way of reducing cost. But trust me, because these surfaces are not meant to be a damp environment, overtime you face the same problem again.
Bathrooms are classifies as wet rooms for a good reason because they are constantly exposed to water. Therefore they need to be tanked.
Below are 5 reasons why you should waterproof your bathroom.
- Stops Dampness and mould growth
Waterproofing your bathroom creates a barrier between plaster, brick or wood and the tiles which is the top layer thus preventing water from seeping through the tiles into these surfaces and mould from growing underneath these surfaces. Use Armorcaot 1k, 2k.
- Prevents leakages
When there is a crack on your wall, floor, or gaps in between the walls and bath, water starts to penetrate and in no time will cause dampness in walls, ceilings or on the floor beneath. Now the site on the ceilings becomes very unpleasant. Also water finding its way to the ceiling on the lower floor could damage the bulbs. Use Armorcoat 1k for negative and positive side waterproofing.
- Reduced cost of maintenance
With your bathroom waterproofed with Armorcoat 1k or Armorcoat 2k you get to save money on yearly maintenance. A bathroom that is not waterproofed will allow water to seep through its parts leading to discoloration, peeling of the paints on the wall.
- Stops structural damage
Anyone who lives on the island is aware that the buildings in the area are exposed to very high humidity. The moist air can damage especially in areas without proper ventilation like the bathroom. So it is important you waterproof your bathroom using Armorcoat 1k,2k.
- Increase in the value of your property.
In the long run if you plan on selling or to continue living in it. It adds to the value of your property if everything is still in good shape.
Also tile fixing contributes to good waterproofing. However appropriate tile adhesive must be used for the right tile to prevent damages to already existing waterproofing. Armorfix 109, 110 are the tile adhesives you could use.
