Many plumbers, tilers, carpenters and handymen (licensed and unlicensed) apply the bare minimum one coat or waterproofing, often rushing the process and not allowing time for proper preparation of the surface before waterproofing is applied. This is due in part to the cut-price nature of the industry- where someone gives you a cut price quote they take short cuts. It’s also due to the fact waterproofing is a specialised skill, something we have worked hard to perfect at Beach Bathrooms.
