But before building a bathroom people prefer a long lasting material. So the point is that how can we make a waterproof bathroom? Do we need good material? Do we need good maintenance? In this article you will find all the answers of your questions so keep reading.

How can I be sure if my bathroom is waterproof? 

Design is the key to finding a solution. If you take a shower, you’ll have a shower tray and a screen to keep water out of the room. If you have a wet room, you’ll have a specific floor that lets the water drain without damaging the subfloor.  There is still a lot of water and spray in both circumstances, though. Water will be in contact with the walls on a regular basis. However, you’ll need a remedy to keep the water from inflicting further damage.

Which material is waterproof?

PVC panels for the walls and ceilings are a waterproof material. No gaps exist between these panels. Because they use a tongue and groove construction to connect one panel to the next, they are waterproof. Water can’t get between the panels or into the space behind them because of this design (assuming you affix them to battens). They will be exceptionally easy and quick to install because of the tongue and groove design. Installing the panels in your shower or wet room does not require any prior experience. You’ll save a lot of money on tilers this way.

How can I make my surface waterproof?

Here are a few points: by following them you can secure your floor and you can make it long lasting.

Ensure that all surfaces are level and smooth. 

Ascertain that the surfaces are stable, flat, and smooth. Before applying primer, remove any old tile, adhesive, or cracking plaster. Fill in any gaps and allow enough time for the filler to dry.

Prime the surface

Using a brush, apply the first coat of primer to the wall in vertical strokes to ensure even coverage. From the floor to the ceiling, work your way around the room.

Allow time for the primer to dry

Allow at least 6 hours for the primer to dry.

Apply a second coat of primer

Working horizontally across the walls from the bottom to the top, apply a second coat of primer.

Tape the area with waterproof tape

Before going on to the second stage, make sure the primer is dry before applying the waterproof tape to the room’s joints, which include vertical and horizontal seams between the walls and the floor. Water cannot seep in between these places as a result of this. When tape the walls, start at the bottom and work your way up.

Tape the joists 

You’ll need to tape the joists between the flooring if you have a wooden floor.

Cover the drain with tape

By cutting a hole the correct diameter for the drainage pipe, use the self-adhesive membrane to seal around the drain. Sheeting should also be trimmed around any other pipes that come into the room.

Double-check the tape 

Use a roller to verify that the tape is securely adhered to the membrane and that the seal between the membrane and the floor is free of air bubbles.

Make sure the joints are sealed

Use a roller to ensure the tape is securely adhered to the junction between the walls and the floor.

Cover the floor with the rubber membrane

Allow the liquid rubber membrane to dry before applying it to the floor.

Cover the walls 

After that, apply the rubber membrane to the walls.

Put the liquid 

Two coatings of liquid membrane should be applied at right angles to each other. Allow 6 hours between coats to dry.

Allow to dry completely

You can tile your wet room after the second coat has been applied and allowed to dry.
