Wet Room Waterproofing

Wet-rooms are a growing trend, adding value to your home and helping future proof your installation. The key is of course is to ensure that the installation is waterproof. Currently you have two options- traditional tanking using paint on liquid applied sealing membranes or the advanced Classi Kit for Wetrooms which uses waterproofing membranes as part of the installation. Advantages to using Classi Wetroom Kit

  1. Added peace of mind, the waterproofing membrane is a physical protective waterproofing layer.
  2. From start of waterproofing to tiling is approximately one hour. Liquid applied sealing paint on membranes typically require several applications- each with a 24-hour drying period.
  3. Specially designed wet room wastes allow the membrane to interlay ensuring that escaped water is diverted into the waste.
