Not only are unsuspecting clients finding themselves with frustrating waterproofing problems, many builders are ending up with massive holes in their profit margins and irreversible damage to their reputation.

The Master Builders highly successful waterproofing guides are designed to be a reference tool and training aid and to help establish high quality building practices in the area of waterproofing. These guides provide information and advice rather than compliance with minimum standards and were born out of industry experience after scrutinising numerous failures of waterproofing systems.
The first two titles published in the series are Guide to Internal Wet Area Waterproofing and Guide to External Waterproofing Balcony Decks. The third title Guide to External Waterproofing Planter Boxes is to due to be released in 2012.
