Everybody mentions waterproofing for your home; be it your bathroom or balcony but what exactly is waterproofing for? Waterproofing is the process of making a surface in your home water-resistant or waterproof. This protects the surface from being damaged when exposed to harsh elements such as heavy rain or water leakage. In turn, this will prevent cracks from forming, tiles from popping up, paint from peeling and development of mould.
Waterproofing is often overlooked as it is a ‘behind-the-scene’ process that does not have a direct impact on the look of your home renovations. However, waterproofing is extremely important as it will benefit everyone staying in the home. On top of this, extensive water damage due to poor waterproofing can affect the value of your home. When done right, waterproofing can can extend the longevity of your expensive home renovations.
