The different bathroom waterproofing methods are:

This is one of the oldest and most widely used method. The biggest disadvantage of this method is that it’s not full proof method. The durability is also not long enough. It’s a low cost method.
After certain time many have found that water gets soaked into the substrate which leads to growth of molds and cracks.
We don’t recommend this method.
Waterproof sheet membrane
In this waterproofing method thin sheet’s are place one above another. The membrane is made up of polymer and adhesive substances which gets glued on to the surface.
Expensive in cost and requires highly trained professionals to perform the whole process. The water gets blocked by the sheets. The water is not absorbed by the sheets. The only concern of this method is about the flatness of the surface after placing more than one sheets on the surface.
We highly recommend this method if you want to have 100% waterproof with long durability.
This method easy to implement. A high quality liquid is sprayed or painted on the surface. The liquid when dried acts as a semi solid layer on the surface which blocks the water.
