Comprehensive, thoroughly researched, includes design and practical

This course is a fast, comprehensive and engaging way to understand good practice in waterproofing; it is thoroughly researched and accurate, inclusive of waterproofing system application but also design considerations for wet area construction and practical views on what can go wrong and how to do it right.

Very informative course - lengthy but informative

The only detail a bit lacking was how to bond a screed to a debonded waterproofing product - like a solvent based polyeurethane membrane. Builders generally want speed in the process and are not aware that tie/broadcast coats are required which add about 3 days to the process. If a screed is debonded a 40mm minimum thickness is required internally and 50mm externally - all areas.

Practical and Knowledgeable

I liked this course because it is very practical to what actually happens on site and in the industry rather than just being a general overview of waterproofing in general. It discusses specific issues that happen with membrane and suggests ways to prevent this from occurring.
