Jaco Barnard of Swellen­dam writes My builder is con­vinced that tiles are the only way to go in a bath­room. What other op­tions are there for wall and floor cov­er­ings?

Bren­don Fisher, tech­ni­cal con­sul­tant at Co­prox, replies If you’re not keen on tiles, ce­ment coat­ings are pop­u­lar as a wall or floor fin­ish. Co­prox Ma­sonry Waterproofing and Co­prox Wa­ter­proof Dual­coat elim­i­nate the need for plas­ter, paint and tiles, pro­vid­ing a unique mot­tled and rus­tic fin­ish that ages beau­ti­fully.

The sub­strate is fin­ished and wa­ter­proofed in one ap­pli­ca­tion and both prod­ucts are avail­able in 20 at­trac­tive colours; they can also be painted over with tra­di­tional paint. A fresh coat of Co­prox is all it takes to main­tain the look!

Co­prox Ma­sonry Waterproofing is ap­plied with a brush and Co­prox Wa­ter­proof Dual­coat can ei­ther be ap­plied with a brush for an el­e­gant tex­tured fin­ish or trow­elled on to cre­ate a smooth skim coat fin­ish on walls and floors and over clay tiles. You can find de­tailed in­struc­tions as well as ap­pli­ca­tion videos on the Co­prox web­site.
