Why Does Your Bathroom Need Waterproofing?
Waterproofing can be an important component to your bathroom remodel. If your walls and floors in the bathroom are not waterproof, you could end up with issues such as leaks, excess moisture build-up, mold, water damage, and more.
WHY USE THE SCHLUTER SYSTEM
It’s not enough to use only a water resistant backer board such as Dura Rock or Hardi Backer under the tile. These products are only designed not to fall apart when they get wet. The constant moisture in a bathroom wicks its way through the grout and into the backer board. The primary cause of mold and mildew is moisture. Damp surfaces cause the fungi to multiply. There does not need to be standing water for mold and mildew to grow.
The best way to prevent mold growth is to apply a waterproof membrane between the tile and the backer board.
Schluter Systems has the most innovative, effective, and easiest to install waterproof systems.
Please be sure to ask you salesperson about these and all of the many other important components used in protecting your home from the harmful effects of excess moisture.
