Bathroom & Shower Waterproofing

It’s no surprise that bathrooms are exposed to significant levels of moisture. Splash water from showers and bathtubs creates water vapor that condenses on the walls and floor and even minor mishaps such as an overflowing tub can release major amounts of moisture. Bathroom waterproofing, therefore, is the key to preventing both damp and mould, along with reducing the risk of water leakages. It also helps you to insulate your bathroom which, in turn, can reduce your energy bills.

The challenge - to prevent moisture damage in the substrate itself. 

Modern designs now favour floor-level showers, in which the shower water is not collected by a tray but instead flows to a drainage point directly from the floor covering.

The consequence - moisture damage developing in the building structure.

It’s therefore crucial that you make sure you have installed suitable bathroom waterproofing in order to avoid long term damage, both to your bathroom and the rest of your property.

The solution - waterproof bonded tile assemblies

As bituminous waterproofing is difficult to install together with tiles, bonded waterproofing assemblies are now the preferred solution and offer a much easier way to waterproof your space.

With Schlüter®-DITRA 25, Schlüter®-KERDI, -KERDI-FIX and -KERDI-COLL, you can quickly and reliably install a waterproof bonded assembly with tile or natural stone coverings for a fully waterproof bathroom.

If the substrate is not suitable for tiling, extensive additional work and waterproofing can be required, which is where the Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD comes in. This makes it easy to create an instant waterproof underlayment for tile installation over substrates as diverse as masonry, stud frame constructions of wood or metal along with mixed or existing substrates in renovation projects.
