Claisebrook Cove home looks a treat after restoration works to combat water ingress

Conspar has completed a series of restoration works at a residential property overlooking Claisebrook Cove in East Perth.

The works have included waterproofing the floors and walls of the outdoor courtyard, staircase and basement, plumbing, plastering, tiling, balustrade repair and painting.

Waterproofing is an essential stage of the building construction process. If inadequate or no waterproofing has been installed, water penetration can occur through surfaces and lead to structural problems. Issues that can manifest are not only limited to water leaks and the damage associated with that but more substantial problems such as concrete cancer.

As can be seen from the images above, the condition of the tiles showed that built-up moisture had become a problem. Drainage was also insufficient. Upon removal of the tiles it was evident little or no waterproof membrane was present, allowing moisture to develop.

All tiles of the outdoor area, including the staircase, had to be removed, as well as the screed. New screed was laid and a waterproof membrane then new tiles installed.

Walls were stripped and prepared, then a waterproof membrane installed, surfaces rendered and finally painted.

More adequate drainage was also installed.

Conspar, operating since 1969, and led by a registered builder, registered architect and registered painter, specialises in structural building maintenance for residential, commercial, industrial and heritage properties in Perth.

Whether it be conducting waterproofing works, treating concrete cancer, rising damp or carrying out other structural works including multi-faceted projects (roof work, brickwork maintenance, plastering, painting, retiling, balustrading, carpet installation or new doors/windows/floors) Conspar can assist.

The team also offers preliminary investigative reporting for specific building problems.
