Topic: I am checking for water proofing in load bearing house (was built about 10 years

I am checking for water proofing in load bearing house (was built about 10 years back). One side of house was attached to hill (about 6fit of wall is touching hill)and it was built with brick wall. There is seepage on this wall. Do u have any suggestion to prevent seepage from this wall without breaking? In same house living room is below ground level. there is seepage from floor. In heavy rain about 1" water is collected in floor. What do u suggest for this floor? Hope to get reply soon thank u

Dear Anu

          I go through your prblem and I am in view that if there is space between your walland hill than do the plaster on the wall towords hillside and also apply waterproof mebrance on the plaster. Also see there should be no any pocket where water is collected,if any than make proper slope to drain the water

For low level room, in this case both the walls as well as the ground are liable to get damp due to capillary rise of moisture from ground.
 In such situation, it is necessary to provide damp proof of flexible material like bitumen felt over the entire area of the ground including wall thickness .This felt is also laid on vertical faces of the wall.
The horizontal & vertical surfaces should be finished smooth. This should be protected from the damages. After the treatment lay the floor topping of any type which you need.

dear Anu ..I would like to bring to your notice a waterproofing product I have come across recently...it supposed to work on any surface by penetration ...and requires only one time permenent application ...u can visit their site " epasia.net"
I have not used the product myself but if it indeed does what it says t can do ..then I thnk it will solve ur waterproofing problem.
