Waterproofing Showers

DESCRIPTION

Before embarking on tiling your shower ensure that the shower is waterproof. It is essential to carry out the correct background preparation and to waterproof the shower before tiling can commence. Remember that the tile installation is an aesthetic finish and, while a latex-modified adhesive and grout system will provide a water-resistant finish, it will not be waterproof.
