Waterproofing plays an integral part in the structural base of a building. The reason is pure and simple: you need to waterproof your building to prevent water from penetrating through the walls and ceilings. If you choose to neglect this issue, water penetration can cause dampness and even health hazards due to fungi and mould growth.
Thankfully, there are few waterproofing specialists in Malaysia that you can hire to fix such a problem and we’ve made it easier for you by listing the best in the business worth checking out.
How Much Does Waterproofing Cost in Malaysia?
When it comes to the cost of waterproofing, a site survey has to be conducted to determine whether any preparation is needed beforehand. For instance, assuming the surface is caked with lots of dirt, they’ll have to do some cleaning before the waterproofing work begins.
So, in terms of pricing, it varies on the type of coating used on the surface. The estimated cost of cementitious (cement-based) or bituminous coating based on square feet, would be around RM 2-4. Elastomeric liquid waterproofing emulsion is priced between RM 3.50-5 while the bituminous membrane and polyurethane liquid membrane are between RM 6-10 and RM 10-15 respectively.
