Supplier: Sovereign Hydroseal

Sovereign will take your architectural drawings design and produce a set of detailed drawings detailing all the waterproofing requirements from the basement to the roof.


We have internationally experienced personnel capable of designing and specifying the waterproofing on any size building project professionally and accurately.

Sovereign Hydroseal is constantly improving its products and services offering. We are continuously improving our technology in application, design and products. Over recent years the construction markets, and more importantly, customer requirements, have altered substantially.

With global warming becoming a serious factor in building design, green roofs are becoming more prominent. The biggest change with the highest risk is the move into fast-track construction. To maintain our position we have had to be flexible and adapt to these changes. The world financial downturn has presented many challenges for most companies, in particular businesses are looking at cost effectiveness, and Sovereign Hydroseal is no exception. At Sovereign Hydroseal we offer Quality Design, Quality Products and Quality Contracting.

Quality Design

We are committed to a reliable and professional service and our friendly, dedicated and efficient sales and technical staff are on hand at all times to provide you with installation, product and technical information that would assist you in making the correct decision when choosing a waterproofing solution.

Whether it is a mineshaft, ore pass, tunnel, tank, planter, balcony, green roof, new roof or the refurbishing of an existing roof, we can offer solutions that will suit your needs. Our new ideas and innovative qualities make us a lively, enthusiastic company, striving to make a positive difference to the community.

Specification Without Risk

As long as the waterproofing industry is price driven there will be an underlying risk for the end user. It is unwise to pay too much, but it is worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money. When you pay too little you sometimes lose everything because the thing you paid for is incapable of performing the job it was bought for. There is hardly anything in the world which someone can't make a little worse and sell a little cheaper and people who consider price alone are this man's lawful prey.

Waterproofing tends to be one of the most abused areas of a building project. Market statistics indicate that the cost of waterproofing is less than 0,5% of the total cost of a building and yet 60% af all first year call-backs are related to waterproofing. All too often the correct professional specification is disregarded in favour of inferior materials and the use of unprofessional contractors. This may be driven by cost cutting exercises resulting in quality being substituted by price. The original design considerations are neglected, without reference to the professionals. Quality should never be substituted by price.

Design of the structure, careful material selection, detailing along with quality workmanship remain the most important factors in ensuring a watertight structure. Experience has shown that often the waterproofing design is considered at too late a stage in the project resulting in using the "best possible" solution rather than the "best" solution.


Work carried out by inexperienced contractors with limited waterproofing knowledge and the use of inferior materials will surely lead to costly rework. This rework can be much more expensive than the original cost never mind the inconvenience and damage to both structure and reputation.

At Sovereign Hydroseal Pty Ltd we offer our expertise in both the grouting and waterproofing industries keeping all guarantees with one company. We will supply you with the correct details and specifications from your drawings, project manage the grouting or waterproofing installation and do the installation under a Ten Year guarantee. It is reasonable to expect that the waterproofing material will give complete protection for 20 years or longer.
