It is really a dead duck than your imagination. Why not waterproof your bathroom from this unthinkable disaster.
In your home, the bathroom is one room where waterproofing is really essential. Bathroom area is exposed to water every day. It’s better to waterproof your bathroom at the time of construction itself. Repairing a leaking bathroom is a costly and tedious process. However, waterproofing can also be done to leaking bathrooms.
It’s a common misconception among many people that the tiles are waterproof, believing that, once the grout has set, water can no longer penetrate through the tile flooring and into the substrate. Even, when there are no visible gaps in the grout, water can migrate through the tile. Grouting does reduce the amount of moisture that goes through the tile flooring, but it doesn’t completely stop it. So, not only the bathroom floors but also the bathroom walls must be waterproofed.
