Clear Waterproofing Membrane

You're not alone...

You’re joining thousands of people all over the world with a leaky balcony who knows it doesn’t make sense to rip up perfectly good tiles to reach and repair a failed balcony/deck membrane.

Luckily now you don't have to, you can waterproof OVER the tiles!

By using our Clear Waterproofing Membrane which is a 2-part aliphatic polyurethane. It's similar to the waterproofing membrane below your tiles, except it’s clear, able to be walked on and installed by applying the waterproofing over the tiles and has a slip resistant finish.

Clear Waterproofing Membrane comes in Gloss, Satin or Matte Finish so you can install the same finish as the tiles you currently have and make it difficult to see the difference.

Clear Waterproofing Membrane is applied on top of the tile to provide a transparent waterproof membrane so it doesn't change the look of your original area whilst making it water tight.

Being flexible to cater for additional movement over time, protecting your home and it's specifically designed for leaky shower and leaky balcony areas! The membrane comes in Gloss as standard or Satin & Matte to match your existing tile finish.

So you know the membrane will work but you're wondering if you can install it? Here is some extra help.

FAQ

In this section you will find a variety of questions asked by home owners and tradespersons about our product; we are continuously adding to this page so the answers to your questions will more than likely be found here. If your question remains unanswered please email us at info@remedialmembranes.com

How long does it take to complete a repair?

There are different steps in your repair; firstly, it’s the clean and prepare the surface which includes re-grouting if grout is missing, cutting in expansion joints and replacing popped tiles. Then it needs to dry and if you surface is in full sun and you live in a tropical climate than it can be dry in around 2 days. The actually application depending on the size of your area can be done in a single day. But if you have a timber frame, or stone tiles which required additional assistance then it could take more than one day. Depending on your size the process itself could be complete in 2 days but it might have drying days in-between.

I’m not a contractor, can I do it myself?

yes, the instructions have video references for additional information and are described as detailed not difficult. You can find the install guides if you select Application on the menu options and select which application you are looking for. There will be a video on the top of the page direct below will be the install guide.

What is the process for making a booking for supply and install?

select your mouse of the Contact menu option, select installer on the dropdown menu, enter postcode when prompted and contact some of your local installers to get a quote. Most will be able to ask you questions over the phone and provide a phone quote for you. If there are no installers in your area you can request your local contactor to do the online training course or Do-It-Yourself.

Is the membrane ok with salt water?

Yes, the membrane is fine with salt water and has been installed on many balconies only meters away from the sea.

Can I use the membrane for rising damp?

Like 95% of other waterproof membrane Clear Waterproofing Membrane is a positive membrane which protect the surface from the rain and the hose but not from rising damp. Rising damp is usually a requirement of preventing water sitting against porous building materials. In areas where that is not possible you should be looking for using epoxy

Can I waterproof my pond with the Clear Waterproofing Membrane

No, Clear Waterproofing Membrane will blush or appear milky in ponding water over time so we recommend that it is only installed on surfaces with fall.

What about mold?

External areas are generally subject to UV and as such are not really subject to too many issues with mold.

What do I clean the membrane with after it has been applied?

There are reduced pores for dirt to sit in so it will be easier to clean a clean once a week with white vinegar will be sufficient.

What People Are Saying
About
 Remedial Membranes

★★★★★

"During building my house on the waterfront in US, we ended up with people missing waterproofing underlay on my outside patio. We had put travertine on it, which was a nice stone and gave it a great look. However, we soon realized our mistake as water started to show up in the underside ceiling.

I was first trying to figure what went amiss and after consultations with many different builders and local experts, found that we missed the underlay during the build process. I was really frustrated at this point as it was something the builders should have realized but nobody said anything. Now out on my own, option was to either redo the whole upper patio again, which meant approx another $60,000 to spend and months of mess around the house we live in, or find something that I can use to coat the surface so the area can be waterproof.

The challenge I was facing was trying to find something that could coat the travertine without losing its appearance and could last long, won't turn yellow, and is clear... I started talking to Jasmin Aleknavicius at Remedial Membranes and she helped me with multiple doubts and clarifications with a lot of patience. I was scared to place the order and skeptical still but I took the plunge after reassurance from her and bought the product.

After application, my leak issue completely resolved. I cannot be much happier after realizing I was able to achieve this because of the help from the folks at Remedial Membranes. It is such a wonderful product and I share it with all the people around me proudly now. I have had this for past one year on the main culprit area of my patio and very pleased. I am planning to now cover the remaining 2,000 sq feet with the same product. Thank you Jasmin and Remedial Membranes."

“We have a large tiled deck that was leaking into the carport below as the membrane below the tiles had failed. Remedial membranes were able to waterproof the deck without removing the tiles. This was a great benefit for us as the tiles are no longer available and to re-tile would have meant either unnecessary retiling of other areas that were undercover or having 2 different finishes. Sean did a fantastic job of cleaning and preparing the old tiles and grout and was very thorough applying the new membrane. We are pleased to say that even after the torrential rain we have received this winter the deck is not leaking and the structure below is dry.”

“Thank you so much for all your work, support and advice regarding the water leaking & efflorescence issues we faced in our apartment block in Mornington. I just reflected on our project which started with potentially having to replace 500 sqm of tiles on our level 4 terrace at a very significant cost to us.


Instead of replacing the tiles, we luckily found Remedial Membranes and you were able to offer a solution which decreased the cost for this project by a whopping 75%. The clear membrane looks terrific and has 100% stopped the water leak issues from the terrace.”

My shower was leaking and I wanted to repair it myself. So I purchased the kit and watched the video and installed the membrane. I had a few questions through the process so I took a picture and text them through to the helpdesk and received an immediate call back.

“I contacted Remedial Membranes after we sold our house but one of the conditions of the sale was the showers to be repaired. We didn’t have any spare tiles and the new owners did not want the look to change so the idea of putting a clear membrane over the surface was a perfect solution to everyone involved. The job was done in 1 morning and the sale went through. Highly recommend Remedial Membranes. Their ability to work to a deadline was fundamental for the success!”

Clear Waterproofing Membrane Over tile Waterproofing Membrane Fixes Leaks

AND Prevents Future Leaks

Remedial Membranes Fixes Leaks AND Prevents Future Leaks

Why do leaky balconies/decks/patios/terraces/verandah occur?


Most leaks occur due to movement in the substrate, because the waterproofing membranes are directly fixed, when cracks appear the membrane does not have enough flexibility so the membrane fails. As the membrane is in the middle of the construction configuration (situated below the tiles but above the substrate) it is impossible to access it for repair. Ongoing movement is expected in the substrate especially on a timber frame so the only way to repair a leaky balcony is with a flexible membrane. But if you think there is even a remote possibility of the movement continuing, then replacing the membrane where it is inaccessible means you will be back in the same situation again shortly.


With a clear membrane installed on top, it's easier to identify leaks and to patch repair. It's estimated that the cost of DIY installation of our Clear Waterproofing Membrane costs LESS THAN 10% of the cost it would be to replace the damaged membrane under the tiles!

If you decide to get someone in to do the job for you then the cost comparison are with the cost of professional installation coming in at less than 35%  of the cost of ripping up and replacing the membrane below the tiles.


Really the only choice is: Will you repair your leaky deck yourself or get someone to do it for you?
