Waterproofing

Waterproofing is an essential element in the maintenance and prevention of any damages to your home. Waterproofing is the treatment of a surface area to prevent the passage of water to the foundation of a substrate. It is the first step we take in the renovation process. There are different types of waterproofing membranes; namely solvent based, cementitious based and water-based membranes which our team uses on a day to day basis.

Different membranes are needed for different substrates. Such examples include a water-based membrane for bathroom walls substrates and a solvent based membrane for bathroom floor substrates. Drip Drop Stop provides assurance to our clients that issues such as leaks, dampness and efflorescence are no longer a re-occurring issue. All internal wall and floor junctions and penetrations are sealed with a Class 3 polyurethane sealant as a preventative measure for possible cracks and seeping of water occurring, followed by the application of class 3 membranes to achieve maximum elongation about points of movement in a designated area.

All our team members follow the manufacturer’s instructions in regards to correct installation and application of adequate microns. Drip Drop Stop is a licensed business with over 25 year’s experience within the field. Our team of installers have up to date knowledge and follow current industry standards, abiding to regulations within the Australian standards for (AS3740)

Popular Questions On Waterproofing

Discover you question from underneath or present your inquiry fromt the contact us.
  • Why does waterproofing membrane fail from time to time?
    Membrane failure can be a result of poor and/or incorrect application. This is usually due to a lack of industry knowledge. Additionally, failure of membranes can be a result of a tear due to extreme movements within homes. Our team consists of skilled and licenced tradesmen who certify and warrant their work with confidence, ensuring to prevent any possibility of failure to a body of work.
  • What type of waterproof membrane is best to use in my works?
    The type of waterproofing membrane chosen in the process of the renovation depends on what is best suited to the substrate we are applying to. This will be determined on site during the inspection and will be discussed with the client.
  • How many coats of waterproof are applied during the process?
    2-3 coats of waterproofing are applied to ensure there is no failure in the membrane application. However, additional coats can be applied at the request of the owner.
  • What is the time estimation for the curing of a waterproofing membrane?
    The estimated time for the curing of waterproofing varies due to factors such as the size of the project, type of material being used and weather conditions.
