Using Waterproof Tiling Supplies To Waterproof Your Outdoor Tiled Area

Did you know that not all tiles are waterproof? Outdoor tiles and cement may not be enough to reliably prevent water damage to lower floors, clogging and damage to the tiles themselves. 

Prepare your outdoor area for the Sydney summer rains by waterproofing all of your tiled areas. As experienced waterproof tiling suppliers in Sydney, we know this process like the back of our hand and look forward to sharing it with you. 

What You’ll Need

Before you start on waterproofing your outdoor tiles, you’ll need to ensure that you have the following: 

  • Primer
  • Waterproofing system
  • Reinforcing membrane
  • Silicone sealant
  • Block brush
  • Roller

3 Simple Steps

Waterproofing your outdoor, tiled area consists of three simple steps. A little advice from professional waterproofers - make sure you choose a clear day to get your waterproofing done! 

#1 Priming

Prime the area you wish to waterproof by ensuring that the surface is clean and dry before applying floor primer. Use a block brush for painting the primer onto the surface. Give the surface time to dry before moving onto the second step. 

#2 Application

Once your primer is dry, you can add a layer of silicone sealant over the area you wish to waterproof. It’s important to get this sealant as level as possible. Once the sealant has dried, it’s time to add the reinforcing membrane to the area. This membrane will add longevity to your waterproofing project. 

#3 Tiling

If the area already has tiles, make sure that you apply the primer, sealant and membrane to the tiles as well. If you want to tile over the area that you’ve waterproofed, ensure that you choose tiles that are not too porous. For extra waterproofing, you can repeat the process all over again. It is also recommended that you add adhesive to your grout when grouting your tiles, for a more water-resistant effect.
