The Known Defects With Commercial Waterproofing

Are you a contractor that builds hobbed or rebated showers, or a homeowner that uses one of these designs? The issue with these methods is that the shower screen is not directly connected to the membrane. In the case of a rebated or flow-through shower, the screen is usually connected to the tiles with a layer of silicon. Over time, however, silicon can degrade, allowing water to seep below the screen and outside the enclosure.

Even before time-induced silicon failure, these designs are prone to leaking. Water can travel through porous grout below the tiles. Even with a hobbed shower, cycles of expansion and contraction resulting from the heat and cold can pump water over the hob and out the enclosure. Thus, each of these designs are been known to cause leaks and often after a relatively short amount of time.

As a result, shower builders have noted numerous call-backs for bathroom waterproofing repairs, often while their construction was still under warranty. Tedious, time-consuming and expensive repairs are harmful for business. Thus, a team of experts sought a new method to solve wholesale shower waterproofing product defects.

The Waterstop Streamline, one of the premier wholesale shower waterproofing products, effectively seals shower enclosures by creating a positive seal between the waterproofing membrane and screen. The keyway, placed above the tile surface, effectively traps any liquid within the membrane, preventing it from escaping.

Furthermore, its aesthetic and variety of sizes and shapes make it adaptable across a wide range of bathroom styles and price points.
