liquid waterproofing walls and floor
not sure which product to use
Dear KCS838:
liquid waterproofing walls and floor

So many products on the market today. Most un-proven for 10 year test. The old reliable is to use a vinyl membrane for the shower pan, and walls are typically CBU boards. Bathroom floors need not be waterproof, unless you wish the floor to be a "swimming pool". Some installers are using liquid paint on membranes and walls; however, this is not a pre-requasit sice a better bond is achieved with cement to cement.; however, it is prudent on steam showers as a vapor barrier, and in colder climates with sub-zero temperatures. Why must you waterproof your shower, is it your choice, or are you confused with the functionality of CBU boards, which only need to be water resistant. If you are unsure about your project and a prep for it that I have not explained thoroughly, please ask again. Armen Tavy
