The actually application depending on the size of your area can be done in a single day.

Like 95% of other waterproof membrane Clear Waterproofing Membrane is a positive membrane which protect the surface from the rain and the hose but not from rising damp. Rising damp is usually a requirement of preventing water sitting against porous building materials. In areas where that is not possible you should be looking for using epoxy
No, Clear Waterproofing Membrane will blush or appear milky in ponding water over time so we recommend that it is only installed on surfaces with fall.
External areas are generally subject to UV and as such are not really subject to too many issues with mold.

“Thank you to Jasmine of Remedial Membranes for her work in rectifying the leak caused by the gradual wearing of the waterproofing in our bathroom. The application of the membrane has saved us a huge headache and thousands of dollars! We highly recommend this form of waterproofing.”
“I recently had a failed waterproofing membrane under a tiled balcony. This resulted in substantial leakage and major damage to my ceiling…A clear waterproofing membrane from Remedial membranes was applied over the existing tiles. I found them professional, on time, and did an excellent job. Our balcony has not leaked despite substantial rain since the repair.”
“Great Business to deal with. Keep you updated and in the picture. Had no issues at all. Great product – does the job and finish is good. We had our steps and front Patio done. Impressive ! Would recommend product & Supplier with no hesitation.”
“I contacted Remedial Membranes after we sold our house but one of the conditions of the sale was the showers to be repaired. We didn’t have any spare tiles and the new owners did not want the look to change so the idea of putting a clear membrane over the surface was a perfect solution to everyone involved. The job was done in 1 morning and the sale went through. Highly recommend Remedial Membranes. Their ability to work to a deadline was fundamental for the success!”
Why do leaky balconies occur anyway?
Most leaks occur due to movement in the substrate. As the membrane is in the middle of the construction configuration it is impossible to access it for repair. Ongoing movement is expected in the substrate, especially on a timber frame, so the only way to repair a leaky balcony is with a flexible membrane.
With a clear membrane installed on top, it’s easier to identify leaks and to patch repair. It’s estimated that the cost of DIY installation of our Clear Waterproofing Membrane costs LESS THAN 10% of the cost it would be to replace the damaged membrane under the tiles!
