Installing Waterproof Membrane In Shower
Installing waterproof membrane in a shower, bathtub or other bathroom renovation project is crucial. Before you start tiling your project, you need to make sure that you have robust moisture management measures in place.
Tile, although it is resilient against moisture, does not create an impenetrable seal against water and vapor. In fact, significant moisture can get behind tile, where it can threaten the sensitive building materials underneath.

Inadequate moisture management can lead to big problems
Installing waterproof membrane in a shower is one of a few ways to waterproof an area before moving forward with your project. Waterproofing is vital. If you fail to adequately prepare an area for a shower, tub or other feature that will be subjected to water, you might notice signs of damage over time. This can include:
- Cracks in your tile
- Water stains and water marks
- Soft, bubbling or damaged drywall
- And more
Your bathroom sees running water on a daily basis — you need to provide protection from this steady barrage of moisture. Installing waterproof membrane in a bathroom is a cost-efficient and highly effective way of doing so.
