There are three elements that together will help protect your new waterproofing – product warranties, insurance and a waterproofing guarantee.
And a waterproofing guarantee is the best way to ensure that you’re dealing with a qualified, thorough and expert waterproofing company.
Serious building faults across Sydney strata blocks have made headlines over the last decade. The NSW Government has responded with tighter compliance and contractor registration requirements; however, a few dodgy operators may still exist.
Not every waterproofing company offers a waterproofing guarantee, but a certified and expert waterproofing company should.
A waterproofing guarantee gives you peace of mind that your contractor is committed to highest-quality waterproofing and that they are confident they’ve provided you with a first-class project solution.
As we’ve previously reported, it’s estimated that waterproofing and subsequent property damage may account for up to 80% of all building defects, and insurance claims for water damage far outnumber those for fire and burglary.
Unprofessional waterproofers may opt for a one-size-fits-all waterproofing design and choose a membrane incompatible with the property, bearing in mind rooftops, basements, balconies and other areas need tailored waterproofing solutions. They might fail to prepare the surface properly, lay screeds and membranes carelessly, or miss the finishing details that really matter.
Danrae Group’s expert waterproofers are careful, methodical and detail-orientated. And because we have trades experts at hand, we provide full in-house remediation and oversee end-to-end project management.
When we complete any waterproofing repair, we need to clear and prepare the site, remove the existing membrane, lay down a new one and complete any remedial building such as carpentry or tiling. We might need to order cranes to lift materials to the rooftop, and organise council permits and stakeholder communication. It can be time-consuming and expensive.
With the right solution design, careful and efficient installation and ongoing preventative maintenance, your waterproofing will last. Choose a shoddy operator and you will likely need to pay for the entire project – not once… but twice.
We guarantee our workmanship because we know that our waterproofing solutions are safe, compliant and always sound.
