Protect your home with bathroom sealing

Why bathroom sealing is important

Structural problems in a bathroom are a nightmare to deal with. No one wants to deal with issues of a leaking ceiling or some ugly water stains on the wall. During most DIY bathroom renovation projects, people overlook the importance of sealing their floors and walls. They simply lay tiles or lino over existing plasterboards or floorboards without any form of bathroom waterproofing. This will definitely keep your costs low but increase your chances of facing leakage problems in future. Here are some of the main reasons why bathroom sealing is important.

Stop any types of leaks

Gravity can be your friend or also become your worst enemy. Water will always follow the easiest route downwards. This means if there is a crack in your floor or wall, this is where the water will begin to seep through. Soon, the water will find its way down to the ground floor of your home. You will begin to notice that your walls and ceilings seem to be damp. You may even notice some water droplets forming on your lighting fixtures. If things get out of hand, the water may get into contact with electricity and this could spell disaster.

Prevent growth of microorganisms

Most pests and microorganisms thrive in damp areas. These microorganisms could lead to various health problems such as throat irritation, eye irritation, nasal stuffiness, coughing and even some form of skin irritation. To avoid any kind of infestation from getting into your bathroom it is important that you seal or waterproof any areas that remain damp for long periods of time.

Prevent mould and dampness

In most cases you will only see what goes on the surface of your walls and floor. You will be oblivious of what lies under. The dampness and rot on your walls will only be revealed when you are doing your remodelling. If you put a waterproof layer below your top layer, you can greatly reduce your chances of developing mould and damp within your walls and floor.

Insulation

Bathroom sealing will not only prevent a leaking shower but create a good insulator. Your walls will remain warm to the touch even during those harsh winter periods. This in turn will help in reducing your energy bills in the long run since you will save on heating costs.

Lower your maintenance costs

It goes without saying that no one wants to keep renovating their bathroom each year. High moisture content in certain areas of the bathroom can lead to blistering, cracking or peeling. Rotten floors and walls could even require the help of a professional making your costs even run higher during repairs. Sealing your bathroom walls and floors will ensure that you don’t have to keep renovating. This will in turn save you thousands of dollars in the long run.

Increase your property value

A bathroom that is well sealed will definitely increase your houses market value. People love quality and professional finishes are more attractive when it comes to the modern property market.

  • I couldn’t be happier! It looked like a brand new shower by the time the technician finished. Fantastic Job.

    Client Joe Blacktown
  • We have a really old bathroom and after the service was carried out I was so impressed, it was like a new shower again. Technician was on time and very polite. I felt very comfortable with leaving him in the house while I went to work. The whole experience with Elite Showers was nothing but positive.

    Client Greg Penrith
  • We had Elite Showers come to our home today to do a fix on one of our showers. We have been trying for a while to have someone come out but because it was a small job no-one seemed interested. Very professional and a great job done. Big thank-you. We highly recommend them.

    Client Deborah Waterworth Kellyville Ridge
  • My shower had been leaking for quite some time – within one week of making initial contact my shower is now fixed. The guy who came and fixed my shower was informative very friendly and arrived on time, highly recommended.

    Client Jennifer Platt
  • My showers look amazing!

    I am so pleased with the communication and professionalism.

    Never late and so tidy and clean.

    The price was worth it and yet not expensive.

    Client Diane Tam
  • Thanks for doing such an amazing job on our shower. You can imagine my dismay when I realised my shower was leaking so close to Christmas. Team were so helpful and were able to accommodate us urgently prior to Christmas. They were completely professional, even removing their shoes when walking through the house. They were quick, efficient and the difference in my showers was immense. We really appreciated the pride that they took in completing the job properly and neatly. We would have no hesitation in recommending them or using them again ourselves. Their customer service was exemplary, their workmanship spectacular and were always prompt and professional.

    Thanks so much to the team at Elite Showers.

    Client Phil & Belinda The Ponds

    Client Eddy & Kate
  • I love my new shower. Its gone from being old and mouldy to looking new again. What a fantastic job. The service was explained in detail and they turned up on time, which is rare these days. I was most impressed with the cleanliness of the bathroom after job completed. No dust or mess to clean up. Thank you again

    Client Nicole Westmead
  • Thank you very much for a great job if you ever need a reference please have the customer contact me. Amazing is all I can say

    Client Richard Hoskins Rooty Hill
  • Tech from Elite Showers fixed my leaking shower recess problem very efficiently. Both in the planning of the job and its execution, he provided excellent service at a reasonable price. He left the area clean as new. In fact, you wouldn’t know he had been except for the fact that the shower is now completely leak-free. Recommended TONY BOND EDGECLIFF

    Client Tony Bond Edgecliff
  • Hi,
    We have just had our shower sealed by Elite and has done an excellent job. We were so impressed by his work ethic and pleasant manner, the end result is just great. Thank you for this and I will definitely recommend Elite Showers to our family and friends.
    Kind Regards.

    Client Tracey Wentworthville
  • I highly recommend Elite Showers. There was no “I’ll be there sometime between 9 and 2,” The tilers organised a specific times, worked around my schedule, and showed up when they said they were going to.  They were both efficient, detailed, professional, friendly, and told me exactly what they would be doing each day (my shower was not a simple one).  Best of all though, they did a fantastic job, and went above and beyond to find me tiles that matched the rest of my bathroom floor.  Now my shower doesn’t leak, and the water flows into the drain instead of pooling in the corner like it used to.  Thank you for saving my shower!!

    Client Sheri Thomson
  • Simon did a terrific job. He was very professional and didn’t cut corners – e.g. it would have been easy to tile over waterproofing despite pinholes and save himself a Saturday but he did the right thing and reproofed. He turned up when he said he would and if there were unforseen delays,  he let me know in a timely manner.  I have recommended your service to a Real Estate agency, my neighbour and another  friend.  Advice was spot on – the tiles on the floor are great and the wall tiles almost match the others. Thank-you for a wonderful service and for your reliability

    Regards,
    Pam
