Waterproofing issues in Dubai

Waterproofing is essential in Dubai to protect homes and buildings from the effects of its climate. Here’s a breakdown of common issues, solutions, and how to find reliable waterproofing experts

Common Waterproofing Problems in Dubai

  • Walls: Dubai’s humidity and sometimes heavy rain can lead to water seepage through walls. This causes damp patches, peeling paint, mold, and potential structural damage.


  • Bathrooms: Poorly waterproofed showers, tubs, and floors are prone to leaks. This can damage the bathroom and seep into adjoining rooms or floors below.


  • Roof: Dubai’s intense sun and occasional heavy rainfall take a toll on roofs. Cracks, damaged membranes, and poor flashing around fixtures and vents allow water intrusion.
