Internal Wet Area
Construction standards have changed over the years. As a result, a lot of the work that was done in the past on older homes may not meet today’s stringent standards in waterproofing.
The Australian Standard code AS 3740-2010 states minimum requirements for waterproofing in wet areas. Scullysong adheres to these codes stringently
– It involves installing a waterproof barrier around the walls and floor in your bathroom to protect the integrity of the house from the moisture
– In the shower, the whole floor must be waterproofed and the shower walls should be waterproofed up to 1800mm.
– The walls to the remainder of the bathroom need to be waterproofed up to150mm.
– If the bathroom floor is made of or contains wood or if the bathroom is on the second story or higher, the whole floor must be waterproofed.
– The step down in the shower recess to the floor should be waterproofed back to 100mm.
These are the minimum requirements, but depending on your needs, you may also want to waterproof the areas around the bath, toilet and vanity unit.
