The Danrae Story


Danrae Waterproofing was founded by husband and wife team, Ron and Lillian Caruana in 1996. The name Danrae was born when Ron combined the names of his children Daniel and Renee. Family values have been at the core of the business ever since.


Initially, Ron was the only waterproofer at Danrae but when they landed their first big job - the Abbotsford Cove project consisting of over $1M of waterproofing they were able to hire their first 4 employees.


Over the subsequent years their hard work, quality service and honest approach to business saw them completing many major waterproofing projects e.g.

  • IKEA Tempe
  • The Kinghorn Cancer Centre
  • SBRC Building University of Wollongong
  • ANSTO (Australia’s Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation)
  • Campbelltown, Camden and St Vincent’s Hospitals

Plus completing over $6.5M in remedial work for the strata and commercial property management industry.


Ron and Lillian’s son Daniel became the company’s CEO in 2006, Wayne (Ron and Lillian’s son in law) became Danrae’s Sales Director in 2007, and their daughter Renee is the company’s Operations Administrator. Both Daniel and Wayne started on the tools and moved up through the company to their current director positions.


Relationships: Strong relationships have always been important to Danrae and they have forged long-lasting and trusted partnerships with key organisations such as Government Growth Services, marketing teams, suppliers such as Sika, Ardex, Soprema and Bayset, business coaches and most importantly their customers and employees. These relationships have meant Danrae has grown exponentially from 6 to 21 trained employees in less than 3 years.

Giving Back: Ron is now a committee member of the Australian Institute of Waterproofing, contributing to the improvement of the industry through the Australian standards and best practices. Danrae is also commited to supporting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, who are their charity of choice.

Quality Service: Becoming ISO Accredited in 2015, Danrae Waterproofing combined their strong core values with a focus on growth which culminated in the creation of the Group. This change was made to reflect their more professional, larger-scale capabilities and the united force of all Danrae Services across key aspects of their business, Strata, Commercial, Government and Civil.

Danrae Group has now become a key player in the remedial waterproofing industry completing over 2400 jobs and your project could be part of the next stage of our story, please contact us today on 1800 326 723 .
