Waterproofing is one of the most common building defects reported by property owners.
Defective water proofing can cause a great deal of damage to property, and is often caused by poor installation practices.
In Queensland, if the value of the waterproofing work is over $3,300, it must be undertaken by a licensed individual. This work requires proper training and knowledge of how to apply waterproofing according to the Australian Standard.
It is also important for waterproofing licensees to have a good working knowledge of the range of products available and a sound understanding of how these products work.
