Custom External Waterproofing Melbourne External Waterproofing done right!
We do waterproofing for external walls on both new builds and we do rectification works. Waterproofing an external wall prevents the ingress of water over time which can weaken mortar and bricks causing structural damage. Water ingress is most noticeable when it begins to cause paint and plaster to peel from the inside wall of the building.
Our scope of work suits many types of jobs and applications including waterproofing and remedial work:
- Waterproofing and Sealing of Bathrooms & Laundries
- Waterproofing of Balconies
- Injection of Polyurethane Resins
- Waterproofing of Flat Concrete Roofs
- Waterproofing of Planter Boxes
- Waterproofing of Storage and Cellar Sub-Ground Walls
- Waterproofing of Leaking Showers
- Waterproofing of Basements, Car Parks, and Garage Blocks
- Waterproofing/Sealing Concrete Walls and Retaining Walls
- Fish Ponds, Water Features, Water Storage Tanks, and Live Holding Tanks
- Silicon Sealing and Caulking of Expansion Joints
- Sealing of Brickwork and External Masonry Walls
- Torch-On Membranes, PVC Membranes, Rubber Liners, and Bitumens
- Epoxy Coatings and Clear Sealers/Impregnators
- Acrylics, Urethanes, and Bitumens
- Painting and Tinting of Membrane Coatings
- Retiling, Cement Work, and Re-Concreting
Full Home Renovations
Upgrade every aspect of your home! Demolishing and rebuilding a home is a long and exhausting process. You also end up without usable accommodation for months on end. It’s incredibly expensive!
Renovating the kitchen is the most popular type of major renovation in a home. It’s also the best way to increase a home’s value if it were to be put on the market.
We are highly dedicated to providing you with quality, affordable bathroom renovation services. Our quality work and excellent customer service have made us one of the most trusted names in the business.
Adding a room (or more than one) is also very popular. Often, families with two or more children and not enough bedrooms choose to add on so each child can have their own bedroom.
External Waterproofing Solutions
The bulk of our external waterproofing work is found in balconies and retaining walls. Both types of waterproofing require special treatment and specific products in order to be done well. There are also various options available to either increase the longevity or reduce the risk of damage to the membranes during works like backfilling.
In our maintenance division we’ve seen apartment building movement over time cause severe cracks in balcony slabs. Combined with failed low-quality waterproofing, this can result in cascades of water running off one balcony to the balcony below. Not only is this a problem for the occupants of the property below, it’s a huge cost to the owner of the subpar balcony who now has to rip up all the tiling on their balcony and get the waterproofing fixed.
Are you looking to get balcony waterproofing done? We have 2 completely viable options available to you; a sheet membrane under the screed with a liquid membrane over the top, or a liquid membrane under and over the screed. There are differences in cost and longevity, so click here to learn more about your options.

Frequently Asked Questions
Put it this way. It’ll be more expensive to have below ground waterproofing recovery than it would have been if you’d paid a little extra during construction to have it done properly. However, it’s still cheaper to just bite the bullet and get it fixed as soon as you possibly can, because as conditions worsen it’s going to affect a lot of things and you’ll end up coughing up more money for more repairs than you might have realised.
