At Carolina Custom Homes we care about recommending our clients the best alternatives when it comes to home improvements. We work very hard on implementing the best available technology to achieve incredible results in every project we develop.
But, let´s talk about real facts. Many clients have asked us why do we use Schluter waterproofing systems, and we love to explain the decisions we make so our clients are 100% confident and clear about why we do it and how we do it.
What´s a waterproofing system?
This is the formation of a barrier that is designed to prevent water from entering or exiting from some section of the structure of the house; so, it´s a series of components that work together to prevent moisture intrusion into a facility.
And in case you are wondering how long do they last, it depends on the type and quality of it, but they should last for at least 10 years. This is the reason why is so important to hire a highly qualified and professional team to do this job.
Why choose a Schluter system?
We believe in choosing the best alternatives available in the market to assure durability and quality on each project, that is why we recommend the Schluter waterproofing system. This is a pliable sheet- applied membrane, which is waterproof and vapor retarder for the direct application of tile. The sheet-applied membrane is made from a type of polyethylene and includes a bonding fleece embedded on both sides.
This system is perfect for its use in bathtub surrounds home steam showers, tiled showers, and many more in wet areas.
Work on showers
When implemented in showers, the system works as an integrated group of products that form a fully bonded water tight assembly for tiled showers, so this way the risk of failure is eliminated due to water and vapor penetration.
So this process may take a bit longer than the traditional waterproofing ones, but we guarantee that water will drain perfectly and also will look great.
