Abstract [en]

Tile covered bathrooms require a well

executed waterproofing in order to

protect the underlying construction from

moisture. Länsforsakringar Uppsala pays

annually out millions in insurance for

damages related to poor waterproofed

bathrooms. In recent years, SP (Swedish

National Testing and Research Institute)

investigated and researched

waterproofing products, resulting in

greater shortcomings of product defects

than expected.

This report raises the problems

concerning waterproofing and discusses

why they occur. By studying product

instructions and insurance cases and

damage reports provided by

Länsforsakringar, the most common

problems concerning bathroom

waterproofing where concluded. An

important part of the report was to

find out the actual cause to why

waterproofing damages occur.

The results of the survey indicate that

a common cause of water damage usually

is related to poor product

installations. The survey also shows

that correctly installed waterproofing

often leaks at floor drains and floor to

wall angles.

The conclusions drawn from the report

indicates that several things are to be

improved with the current waterproofing

products. Most of the studied cases

showing damage were due to poor

installation. To prevent installation

errors, better and more extensive rules

and installation guidelines are needed

in order to reduce stress commonly

experienced by workers.
