Topic: Seepage into home from external wall

Hi,

my second question is- what precautions to be taken while making new wall to avoid this seepage.

Dear Panchal

                 Dismentle the tile of roof with the wall, lay the cement concrete gola with wall and lay again the tiles and finsh the roof again.Care should be taken that there should proper slope on the roof so that there should be proper drainage.
