Waterproofing

 

What is tanking a wet room before tiling?

Underlying substrates in wet areas like wet rooms, shower rooms and bathrooms, are usually moisture sensitive. Plaster and plasterboards are porous in nature so as water and moisture can get through tiled walls and floor through grout cracks, this can result in damp and mould. As a result, wet areas should be waterproofed to prevent damp and mould problems arising in your home or commercial wetroom.

To waterproof a wet room, you will need to install waterproof baseboards, while you can use waterproofing tape and membrane for joints, and junctions.
