Remedial Membranes understands that people are buying into multi residential buildings in less than ideal situations. Unfortunately, they may not know of it for a few years.
That is why Remedial Membranes has set up interest free payment terms for large projects where the strata kitty may not be equal to the cost of the repair. We understand that the longer the water leaks continue, the higher the cost. Eventually, there comes a point where it will be exponentially more to repair the damage caused from the leak than to repair the original leak.
Darren & Manual purchased two multi-million-dollar pent houses in Mornington, Australia.
The two penthouses shared the top floor, with the balcony totalling 500m2 with views on two sides to different waterways. The location and the views were breathtaking!
What they didn’t know is that the original builder went bust during the construction stage of their project. A second builder was brought in by the bank to complete the building in a cost-effective manner. Shortcuts to complete the project hastily, resulting in missing flashing and waterproofing behind the cladding. This left large gaps where water could gain access to very expensive timber flooring and bedroom furnishings.
Remedial Membranes were called in along with a secondary contractor to make the necessary repairs identified by the building consultant. This was over $200k in repairs. The strata kitty was not sufficient to cover the costs, and a special level was raised between the owners to cover the costs. Solicitors were involved on both sides and the relationship soured.

Remedial Membranes were able to apply the Clear Waterproofing Membrane on top of the tiles to keep the existing look. There was no wasted time for tile removal. The membranes made the surface water tight from the penthouse rooftop level.
Sadly, these types of situations often occur, especially with Class 2 buildings where the builder up until recently has not even required home warranty insurance coverage. So when issues occur, homeowners find themselves without coverage and footing the bill.
Building defects regarding water account for 2 of the top 5 positions listed in the building defect list each year. Remedial Membranes is happy to take some stress around this time away by offering interest free terms for the completion of large projects.

The Philippines financial hub Makati is located on a fault line known as Marikina Valley Fault System, meaning it is affected by earthquakes. But this does not stop the city of being full of high rise buildings. But when the city was hit by one of it biggest earthquake, the tallest building contacted Remedial Membranes to seal movement cracks on the outside. The Clear Waterproofing Membrane was used on the facade, balconies, window reveals, bathrooms and the helipad. You can imagine, an application of this size during Covid-19 this project is ongoing…
In a very white home, the owners wanted a mood changing bathroom and came up with the idea of a blue bathroom. In some lights can be almost black. The bathroom has a textured concrete floor with cement sheeting on the walls. The vanity was an antique cupboard reclaimed and detailed. With of course Clear Waterproofing Membrane over everything!
