Re: water proofing my laundry

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @freddie. It's great to have you join us and many thanks for your question.


It would be helpful to hear a few more details on the what type of waterproofing you would like to do on your laundry walls. Typically in bathrooms, you would waterproof floors, shower enclosures, around your bath and the toilet area. 


If your laundry walls are plasterboard then they can be painted with a suitable bathroom paint which includes a mould preventative.


Here are some helpful step-by-step D.I.Y. videos on How to waterproof your bathroom floor and How to waterproof a shower recess. As I mentioned before typically walls are not waterproofed, however, you can continue the floor membrane up the wall if you wish to do so.


Please let me know if you need further assistance or had questions on the process.
