Water Resistant vs. Waterproof

One of our main goals at is to make sure that our customers are well informed about the products they are purchasing.  Today, we want to inform all of you about the difference between water resistant and waterproof...and yes...there is quite a difference.

When it comes to tile showers, you are most likely going to be dealing with some type of cement board.  Cement board is water resistant...not waterproof.  Therefore, if you were to tile directly to the cement board, you are just asking for mold and mildew problems down the road.  To avoid these problems, you will need to make sure that your shower is waterproof.  How do you waterproof your showers?  We have a product available on called Aqua Shield.  Aqua Shield is a waterproofing membrane that can be installed right over your cement board, and then tiled to.  By using Aqua Shield, you have created a water tight shower assembly that will not leak.
