Building elements in wet areas must be waterproof or water resistant in accordance with the National Construction Code (NCC) and must comply with Australian Standard AS3740 – Waterproofing of domestic wet areas.
Bathrooms, showers, laundries and toilets are considered to be wet areas within a home, and as such, the building elements in these rooms must be waterproof or water resistant.
For bathrooms with timber floors (including timber sheet flooring such as particleboard or plywood sheet flooring), the entire floor outside the shower area must be waterproofed. Likewise, floor and wall junctions should be waterproofed whether the bathroom floor has timber or fibre-cement floors.
The most important work in a bathroom renovation is what you never get to see. M.J.Harris take particular care to ensure that your bathroom is protected to the best possible level from moisture:
- Water resistant plaster board
- Tile underlay
- Water proofing membrane
- Caulking all tile joins
