FREE BREAKFAST & PRODUCT INTRODUCTION – This Friday 1/4 @ MITRE10 Port Macquarie

Join Us This Friday 1st April @ Mitre10 Port Macquarie from 6:30-8am!

With so much rain lately many homes are experiencing leaky balconies and/or the dreaded continuous leaky shower. These make up two of the main top three, main water-related claims lodged each year with home insurance companies and that’s WITHOUT the additional rain we’re experiencing. 

Why is this happening you may ask? When homes go through periods of dry and then long periods of wet, it can move the very foundations of the home, creating movement and wet areas to fail. Australia has been experiencing in full swing the la Nina weather system and record-breaking rain levels (well above 1 in 100 years) and are said to be remaining for approximately the next 5 years or so. This means that a balcony, even though it’s been installed correctly, could now need to be redone every 6 months (without it being a warranty issue) simply due to the membrane being installed under tiles and because of this, it can make them unable to be repaired. This USED to be the case, but now you can learn what can be done about repairing wet areas using an OVER-TILE waterproofing membrane, so regardless of if the weather makes the area move or not, you have the confidence that it’s waterproofed and it doesn’t mean bankruptcy for many trades!

Meet Remedial Membranes, the leading manufacturer for remedial waterproofing clear & flexible waterproofing membrane! We will be introducing our two best selling products – our Leaky Shower Repair Kit and Leaky Balcony Repair Kits, to trades in the Port Macquarie area.

Preventative Maintenance – The Cheaper Option When Maintaining Your Home

Everything you do or don’t do will always cost you when it comes to your home and (although not particularly sexy) preventative maintenance always delivers cost savings. Sure, there’s the upfront money you have to put down but a rule of thumb goes that for every $1 you spend on maintenance you save up to $100 on future repairs. Making preventative maintenance up to 100 times cheaper!

Take a faulty tap washer for example. It will probably cost less than $5 to replace, an outlay that is significantly cheaper than the $200 you could end up paying over a year for the water lost from a quick drip tap.

Replacing a cracked external light fitting could cost up to $100, but compared to the cost of an electrical short and/or fire due to water getting in, — resulting in thousands of dollars in damage, or potentially the whole house needing to be rewired – it’s minimal. Such an event could even lead to electrocution and risk of death.

Remedial Waterproofing: Most Common Issues And Solutions To Them

Using the best construction materials does not alone ensure a building is going to stay strong for many years. There are many elements that work together to preserve a structure from threats that can affect its effectiveness, and waterproofing is one of them. If not done properly, then it results in leaks, mould and water damage. In addition, it can decrease the building’s value and make it unsafe. Before failed waterproofing becomes a serious threat, it is necessary for a home owner to hire remedial waterproofing specialist.

The Use of Clear Waterproofing Membrane for Leaky Balcony Repair

Remedial Membranes was founded by experienced and highly-skilled tilers and water proofers who were tired of seeing homeowners gouged tens of thousands of dollars for simple leaky balcony repair. We decided to do something about it, and are proud to offer a complete solution: Clear Waterproofing Membrane, an innovative and affordable product designed to fully waterproof any affected area with a simple, user-friendly process.

Water Damage

Water damage can be incredibly difficult to combat, as it has an unbelievable ability to move from its original source to where we find evidence of it, meaning it can be hard to understand the root cause of the problem. More often than not, the problem can be far more extensive than previously anticipated.

Applying Clear Waterproofing Membrane over the entire area that causes difficulty ensures that seepage has stopped regardless of the water’s original source point, all the while maintaining original design and décor.

The Benefits of Remedial Membranes for DIY Leaky Shower Repair

Welcome to Remedial Waterproofing Specialists, a division of Remedial Membranes.

Water ingress in wet areas like balconies and showers is the number-one cost associated with home or building rectification work. It ends up costing a large amount of money, because people don’t know the correct way to approach the rectification. The number one reason the membrane fails is movement. This aspect alone would cover approximately 95% of failures, with design and workmanship covering the final 5%.

Typical Build Configuration

In the building industry we typically build a configuration with sub straight (typically consisting of concrete or FC sheeting laid over timber or steel frame), waterproofing, screed, then tiles. Sometimes the waterproofing can be installed over the screed as well.
