Interior Waterproofing Specialists Auckland
The phrase “leaky home” has become ingrained in the Kiwi Lexicon. It sends chills and provokes worried looks every time a homeowner hear’s those dreaded words.
The long-lasting effects of the housing boom in the 90’s have been rearing their heads decades later and costing millions upon millions of dollars in repair bills.
Back then there was a huge need for new housing, the economy was booming and people were flooding into our shores and needed somewhere to live.
Seeing the opportunity and trying to keep up with demands, new construction sprouted up like gorse on a field and was throwing up homes and apartment buildings with reckless abandon.
Regulations were skipped over and before the new concrete had even cured, the home was sold off to its eager new owner.
Things like waterproofing and cladding designed for New Zealand conditions fell on the way-side and within a few years, those deficits showed.
Whole entire floors were falling in due to water damage caused by leaking bathrooms, whole entire homes were rotting from the inside out and as a result, tough regulations were put in place to stop new builds from falling to the same fate.
JB Tiling is proud to say our standards never fell in that mad era of fast and loose construction, every bathroom we tiled was fully waterproofed according to specification.
25 years later nothing has changed, just the waterproofing materials have gotten even better and safer for Auckland homes.
We are also fully certified and Auckland Council approved interior waterproofers that can supply producer’s statements for every waterproofing job completed.
If you want full piece of mind that your wet area will not leak and you will not have difficulty selling your home, then we can provide the interior waterproofing service that ticks all the boxes.
Waterproof Experts: The JB Tiling Difference
Water is the two-edged sword in every home and business.
We all need it neatly plumbed in its pipes, coming on at the press of the button and washing away life’s messes or providing hydration amongst countless other things.
In that context, we all love water and heavily rely on it in our everyday lives.
But that very same water that makes a home a home and basically keeps us alive, can also lead to hazardous mould growth and bottomless repair pits if it goes anywhere except where it’s needed.
If your bathroom leaks, that water can run where it wants and can wreak havoc on the building’s structure for months before it is even detected – and when it is, it’s usually too late.
If your shower leaks, the water will go into the wooden structure of the home and begin rotting the beams, the subfloor and this damage can extend to the rooms bordering the bathroom.
Sometimes this damage can manifest itself as tell-tale water damage marks on the walls or damp carpet, other times it’ll remain completely undetected until your floor sags and ultimately falls through.
After 25 years of interior tiling & waterproofing in Auckland, we have seen countless instances of leaking bathrooms and actual floors falling through to the level below.
Imagine waking up to a loud boom and seeing your toilet is now sitting on your dining room table.
This happened to one unsuspecting family that didn’t know their bathroom had no waterproofing and was slowly rotting away until it was too late.
The understanding of how water works, how it can and will find any weaknesses in a waterproof seal, using proper waterproofing membranes and having training in how to use them, can make any bathroom fully water resistant.
