Water proofing membranes fibre glass

 

 

 

Bathroom floors shower and laundry floors all must be

water proofed prior to tiling.

There are numerous companies that supply the water proofing membranes and labour for this type of application.

Commonly fibre glass wool and a special water proofing compound is used in conjunction with the CFC floor to create a solid water proof floor that is not going to move and crack spoiling your tiled floor.

Painting on and laying the sheets of fibre glass is a fairly easy task, keeping in mind a certified water proofer must be used when council requires a certificate for water proofing applications, normally with new extensions and new homes.

If you renovating your own bathroom or shower area, you can do your own fibre glass water proof membrane if your confident.

 

Questions to ask your self -

Is the floor structure underneath stable? ie is it timber or concrete? Some bathrooms are built on a timber floor structure, when water seeps through the old water proofing to the  timber floor, the timber will swell and rot away. Then its a good idea to replace the flooring with CFC compressed fibre cement. then water proof on top of the CFC.

If it is a concrete floor, is there an existing membrane on it to protect it?
