When it comes to home renovations and repairs, cost is usually the first consideration. It’s by far the first question most people want answered and understandably so. However, the cost of waterproofing can vary, depending on the size, location and layout of your bathroom. What is certain is that bathroom waterproofing is not an option, nor is it something you want done on the cheap. To get the most accurate cost estimate for your location, it’s best to contact local bathroom waterproofing companies and ask for a quote. Here’s a guide on what you can expect to pay and what questions to ask.
Questions To Ask Your Bathroom Waterproofer
A bathroom that hasn’t been waterproofed properly is prone to a range of damage and costly consequences. These include:
- Peeling paint and plasterboard rot
- Structural damage in surrounding areas
Therefore, you want to make sure your waterproofing contractor has the right experience and skillset. Some companies advertise bathroom waterproofing starting at $40 per square metre but if you want the best, you may find it’s worth paying a bit extra. Ask your bathroom waterproofer:
- How much will my bathroom waterproofing cost? Ask them to provide a written quote with a breakdown of costs.
- Are they licensed and insured?
- Do they have any references?
- Estimated start and completion date?
On completion of the job, you should be provided with a waterproofing certificate and warranty. Make sure you follow this up if it is not supplied within a reasonable timeframe.
There are many DIY waterproofing guides and videos out there. However, unless you 100% know what you are doing, waterproofing your own bathroom is not something we recommend. Watch what happens on The Block when Luke and Jasmin’s waterproofing is not up to standard.
